Nikita Pullover ~ A Free Crochet Pattern

Share this

Year round garments are my favorite to create. Whether it's summer or winter, camisole or long sleeve, I enjoy wearing pullovers that can be worn any season. This summer top crochet pattern is not only for summer. This bat-wing crochet top is loose fitting enough to pair with long sleeves and enjoy every month of the year!
