When the sun is hot and the water is cool, swimsuit coverups are a must. The Lemonade Top was designed to be comfortable and versatile, easily transitioning from lazy beach days to warm party nights.
Finding the perfect summer crochet WIP (work in progress) can be a challenge. When you’re hopping from rooftop bar to rooftop bar, you don’t want to be saddled with a heavy blanket or sweater project. Enter LB Collection Cotton Bamboo, a luxurious blend of natural fibers, perfect for summer garments and accessories. I chose this yarn for the Lemonade Top because it is so lightweight and soft to the touch.
LB Collection Cotton Bamboo is a level 3 DK weight bamboo/cotton blend that comes in 8 vibrant colors. I chose Gardenia (yellow) and Magnolia (cream). The color combination reminded me of the white sands and yellow sun of Italian beaches. I could also see the Lemonade Top made with a Cherry Blossom + Magnolia or Gardenia + Snapdragon.

I’m so excited to release this fun and funky pattern. Adding the lace stitching on the back certainly took me out of my minimalist TL Yarn Crafts style. But the modern color blocking and subtle details make the Lemonade Top a signature piece.
I’d consider this to be an intermediate level pattern, though an adventurous beginner will also love the challenge. The pattern is written for a 38″ bust size and meant to have plenty of positive ease. Details on adjusting the bust size, as well as the length are included in the pattern.
