InstructionsLion Brand did a Crochet-Along (CAL) this summer with this project. It is VERY helpful in working the pattern, since parts of it are a bit tricky. Be sure to look at the community blog for Crochet Along on their site to access these helpful tutorials.

Red Heart Eco-Cotton
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to join Lion Brand's Crochet-Along this summer, and I think that making clothing is really fun in crochet. I teach crochet and it's always a conversation-starter to wear my work!
What are you most proud of?
Doing a good gauge and getting a really nice fit
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
DO NOT use 100% cotton! Your top will stretch out too much and not drape well. The Red Heart Eco-Cotton (75% recycled cotton, 25% polyester) and Lion Brand's equivalent (Recycled Cotton - 74% recycled cotton, 24% acrylic, 2% other fiber) are both great choices. My selection was the Red Heart Eco-Cotton in Currant.
