Triple Top

I'm obsessed with cotton yarn.

I spend half my year with bulky chunky yarn and the other half all cotton!

I love designing light, airy, and comfortable garments for Spring and Summer.

This one is very beginner friendly.

Using only triple crochets throughout and minimal seaming.

Now you know why I called it the "Triple Top." 

I love how triple crochets look and they're a lot of fun to work up.

First let's give this beautiful yarn a spotlight.

I wish you could squish this yarn right now!

Billow is the softest cotton in slides off your hook and works up so fast.

At 100% Pima Cotton, it feels like a million dollars.

Not to mention it comes in 24 stunning colours!

Check them all out HERE.

Notes before you begin:

  • This pattern is worked flat
  • Front and back panel are worked flat as one piece, leaving a neck hole.
  • The sleeves are worked flat back and fourth on each side.
  • Then folded in half and seamed on the sides and under the arm.
  • Chain 3 at the beginning of each row does NOT count as a stitch.
  • This can be customized to any length (add more rows) or any width (add more chains to begin with).
  • The fit is meant to be loose, there is an ease of +4"
  • If you would like a tighter fit, size down.
