We are long-time fans of Heidi Kirrmaier and have knit up several of her designs as store samples including the Medano Beach Bag, Summer Solstice, and Buttercup. Buttercup is both a customer and Ravelry favourite and Heidi has been kind enough to make this great summer top pattern available for free! The easy top-down raglan construction is complimented by lace at the neckline and bottom and features slightly puffed sleeves and an A-line style.  For our store sample we used Premiere from Classic Elite Yarns – a beautiful blend of pima cotton and Tencel – but any lightweight summer blend in a DK weight could be used for this project.
