Bloom : retro summer top

Do you also feel spring and summer in the air?
Sunshine, spending lots of time outside, seeing vivid and happy colours all day long, flowers, birds, lots of garden parties, … ?

I certainly feel it.

So when I discovered the new Scheepjeswol Bloom yarn, I just knew it instantly : disco, retro, and a summer top.

I choose 6 wonderfull colours, and started crocheting. Just like that, without preparation, I just started playing with the yarn and my crochet hook.
The result is this summer top : very easy, very summery, very colourfull.
The yarn has a great structure, lovely natural stretch, so making this top was quite a magical experience…

I will write the pattern and publish it next week here on the blog, so you can all make your own summer top 🙂

Some info in case you want to be prepared by next week so you will be able to start crocheting immediately after the pattern is released :
Pick your favourite colours : here you can see the full Bloom collection. For size medium you need 6 skeins, 1 skein of each colour. Size large requires 7 skeins and size XL 8. Smaller sizes (XS and S) can work with 5 skeins, unless you want to make the same stripes as I did : you have to buy 6 skeins.
The colours used for my top : 402 French Lavender, 407 Fuchsia, 417 Delphinium, 422 Old Lily, 403 Viola and 408 Geranium.

(little secret : I am thinking about making me a second top, in the other colours too )
