The Wildflower Top

Crochet and kids are the perfect combination when it comes to inspiration. I’m constantly thinking of new ideas for something I would like to make for the tiny human in the house and it keeps the creative juices flowing.

It was exactly the same when it came to making the Wildflower Top. I had ordered some fabric fat quarters and one of them was a beautiful pink ditsy floral pattern which was crying out to be made into something cute.
The tiny human has recently started ballet and I pulled on that for inspiration on the design which is where the ruffles came from.

I’d originally planned to just add the peter pan collar with the fabric but as any of you with a 5 year old will know that they are big fans of hidding things in pockets! And so I figured if I was designing a top for her it would need to have a pocket.

The top as well as being super cute needed to be practical, the little madam is a fan of running around and getting up to mischief and so the top needed to be comfy and allow her to be free and move. This led to the oversized nature of the top with the loose fitting capped sleeves and the longer body.
If I’m completely honest I also wanted something that would fit her for more than 2 seconds as that is especially important when its something you’ve taken the time to make.

The top has gone down a storm and looks beautiful on as well as keeping the little miss happy. It works up super quick and has minimal sewing which is a double win in my books. Its whipped up with Paintbox yarn which is the softest acrylic I’ve found and comes in the softest shade of pink, which was exactly what I was after.

I’ve listed the pattern for all 4 sizes on both LoveCrochet and Etsy now so that you can make it for any little wildflower in your life.
