The Roselette top is one of my bestselling pattern.. and many mums asked about a larger version of this design for themselves... The violaine top is crocheted in one piece from the top down, is very easy to make (was the first sweater for many) and fits great all body shapes ! This top closes in the back with 2 oversized buttons for a bit of vintage flair.
