Hello Petal by Joanne Scrace
Find the pattern in issue 65 of Inside Crochet magazine.
Joanne Scrace gets us summer-ready with a fab upcycled garment.
Lazy Daisy Sun Top
Upcycle an oversized t-shirt to make this gorgeous sun top or dress.
Adding a crochet yoke to a t-shirt gives a modern twist and, as t-shirt fabric doesnâ€™t fray once cut, this project needs minimal sewing
skills and preparation.
