A break from blankets

I frogged June’s blanket so many times. I tried three different stitches. Finally I switched yarn and to c2c. The blanket WILL get done. Eventually. 

I needed a break from it so I made something for me. In fact I made two somethings for me. 


This is the first Cold Shoulder Coverup that I made. I sized it to go over a tank top and jeans instead of as a swimsuit coverup. 


I changed the pattern slightly for the second one that I made. I added the solid band just under the bust area and made the sleeves shorter. 

The pattern is available at:

I used cotton yarn and an I hook for both shirts. When I made the shoulder straps on them I had to make them much longer than the pattern designer’s. That’s the great thing about this pattern. It is totally customizable. 

I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th of July and enjoyed seeing my patriotic wear!

  1. I love this top!!! What a versatile pattern too – you can make it as long or short as you want. I would go for a longer one. It looks great over jeans! 😀
