Sundrop Flower Top

Granny squares are so versatile.

I love designing with them.

If you want to look past all the seaming you have to do, 

projects will work up much faster than you think.

Granny Square Don't Care Skirt

I used Cotlin Yarn for this project.

This is hands down my favourite cotton yarn.  It's a blend of Tanguis Cotton and Linen making it a cool and lightweight spring/summer yarn perfect for all your sunny projects.

It's easy to wash and will get softer each time.

Available in over 40 colours!

Before we get to the pattern, I paired my Sundrop Flower Top with this cute 
Tied Up Headband.

So easy make!

Notes before you begin:

-it's important to match the finished size of the square in order to match the size you need

-the top is a more relaxed fit, size down for a more fitted top and size up for a looser top

-I chose 3 random colours for the inside of each of my squares, you can choose as many or as few colours as you wish

-the way I have sized this is my suggestion, the pattern is made up of only squares.  You can make as many as you want and seam them together in any orientation that works for you.

-the squares are seamed together, then seamed at the shoulders, laid flat, sleeves are added, folded in half, seamed under the arms and on the sides
