Introducing Summer Duet, an amazingly simple (first time crocheters and sewers can handle this!) summer top.  In fact, it is so easy, that I had to make three!  Summer Duet is made in two parts, with a few easy steps:  first you choose yarn and fabric that you LOVE, then crochet the top band for your size, finally cut and sew the bottom and attach together.  The pattern is written step by step with diagrams and photos to outline any parts that might be tricky.  If you don't crochet, this might be the project to get you to learn!
