I couldn't resist this pretty pink cotton (Phildar Cotton 3, 62 Poudre). I wanted to make a vest, but crocheting with needle 2,5 was slow and I didn't even know if it would fit. So to be sure I frogged it and made this Drops design top (free pattern) instead. I adjusted the pattern to make it more modern. I didn't like the length so I left out the bottom part. Also I discovered the top has a collar (that doesn't show in the picture) so I left out that one too. I love the result; specially with this color green. I needed only 2 of 3 skeins, so it's a quick and inexpensive project. I will definitely make another one!

Instructions with my adjustments for the top can be found here if you like: http://littlezdesign.blogspot.nl/2013/04/pink-cotton-crocheted-top.html
