Because of the unpredictable temperatures, crochet toppers, like this shrug, have come in so handy this spring and early summer. I can wear a light summery outfit, but throw on a topper for the chilly parts of my day! This shrug pattern has been no exception, and the versatility is impressive.

I love the creativity of this pattern. A rainbow can be a fairly simple shape, but this one manages to have a cute retro look to it no matter what colors you end up using! And the bobbles add beautiful texture to what could easily become a boring stitch pattern otherwise.
This crochet pattern met all my expectations. It was simple enough to make but held my interest, it looks more complicated than it ended up being, and it gives a beautiful but laid-back look to pretty much any warm-weather outfit.
This pattern is wonderfully simple! Most of the stitching is a basic rectangle with a little bit of shaping for the neck and sleeves. Then you just sew the pieces together and enjoy it! If someone is looking to get into garments and wants to try a relatively simple one, I highly recommend this one. It’s not always easy, and of course there’s some frogging involved to get your fit just right sometimes, but it would be a great choice for an approachable garment pattern.
This top can be dressed up or down, and would be perfect for any occasion. It’s warm and comfy, and more lightweight than it might look. This pattern is so simple and yet very rewarding. You get into a rhythm working up the rows, and then before you know it you’re finished! It was a joy from start to finish and I recommend it for yourself or as a nice gift.
Overall, I’m quite pleased with my new Country Grace Pullover. It was an easy crochet pattern to follow worked in a stitch pattern similar to the classic granny stitch, and easy to adjust to fit just the way I wanted. This is an excellent Spring and Summer top, though living in Florida, I will enjoy it all year long.

My overall thoughts on this pattern are pure joy. It was fun to work up, easy to understand, and very simple to modify to my gauge and my body. The tie idea is creative and definitely something I’ve seen in store-bought tops, but I never would have considered emulating that in crochet! DK yarn was a great choice, and this top feels like a cloud. I am going to rock this thing with some cute summer outfits!
Simple. That’s the best way to describe this pattern. I’ll warn you, it is slip stitch. But don’t run away screaming just yet! I agree, I am not a slip stitch fan either. But the main dress is actually a modified version that goes much quicker and has more stretch to it.
