I made the top available here a few years ago and opted to give it a whirl for a second round.

This time, though, the yarn I used made much bigger squares, which is not a big surprise because the pattern called for a yarn that took a 4.5 mm, and the yarn I used called for the 5.5 mm 😉

When I saw how big the first square turned out, I opted to make it a bikini-style top with ties. I didn’t line it, so I will wear it over my bralettes and bikini tops.

I did go in and tack it together in a second place in the front, creating a keyhole detail in the front.  In the photos, I had a pin there, but I think I prefer it without the pin so I can wear layered necklaces with the top for a real boho vibe.

Although the original pattern here lists it as “intermediate,” I didn’t find the squares too complicated. If you can do trebles and clusters, you will be good to go! It worked up really quickly too so that was a bonus.

Happy Crocheting!
