I was smart enough to purchase the crochet book, "Everyday Crochet" by Doris Chan. She has some of the cutest "lace" patterns for tops - and even though they are a bit complicated, they are worth the time. I finished this one as a "try out" to see if I could make the pattern - using a bit of yarn that I would not have used had I figured I would actually finish it and like it! However, it goes with lots of tops and a pair of jeans, and looks pretty good. I still have not decided as to whether or not I will put any buttons or closures on it, so it is what it is for now.
