Tulip Motif Top

This beautiful Tulip Motif top is so beautiful!  The Plymouth Cleo cotton yarn used is so light weight that it makes this a perfect summer top!

The pattern for this shirt is only offered in a diagram form.  I found writing the pattern for joining the squares together to be rather difficult, so I had diagrams made.  However, if you would like the pattern for just the Tulip Square you can find that HERE.

This is a single sized diagram, but im sure you could make it a little larger or smaller by simply reducing your hook size.

Materials:
7/4.5mm
Plymouth Yarn Cleo – 700 yards

Size:
Fits a traditional Medium
Length of top from shoulder to bottom of shirt is about 24 inches

Special Notes: I waited until the entire top was completed before joining.

Here are the measurements for the completed Tulip Motif Top.  If you want to make the top longer (possibly a dress, you will simply continue making squares and adding them in the Picots)

You join your squares together while working the Picot.

Don’t get over whelmed.  Just take your time, use the Symbol Key (located on the left) and I’m sure you will see that it is quite simple to join.

When we first think of spring, we think of bright warm colors, so that is what I hope you see; (regardless of how much snow may be piled in the parking lot).Bloom of Spring

This is a large 12×12 inch granny square that works up really quickly and is really beautiful!  Plus with it being made with Red Heart with Love it is super soft!  I think this would make a beautiful afghan!  and with the squares being so large it would not that that many for a decent sized blanket!  Or even a Granny Square Poncho!

Attach button.

I have sewn the flower to the hat directly but I have also gotten hair clips and tied the flower to the clip so all you would have to do is remove the clip and the hat would work for a little guy.

Baseball Stitches
I highly recommend threading an embroidery needle and working two strips through the hat as guides for stitches, it will save you lots of time. Then take your thread for the baseball stitches and pull the guide thread out as you come to it when doing your stitches.   I did the stitching in the same direction as I prefer the way it looks, instead of doing it opposite.

I find that the stitching looks better if there are only two skipped rows between the top and bottom of the ‘V’ stitch.
