Free Crochet Top Pattern- Celosia Spring Top

I am so thrilled to have Pamela of Pam’s Cozy Corner as a guest designer on the blog, sharing her Celosia Spring Top Pattern.

About the Designer

Hi! I am Pamela. I am a wife and mom of four grown precious children, one girl, and three boys. I am also a blessed grandmother of three beautiful girls. 

I have been crocheting and knitting since I was about 8 years old. I learned the art through observing the women of my small village in Kenya crochet and knit. Crochet and Knitting, as many will attest, is my happy place. 

I love to design simple, modern, stylish, and comfortable garments and accessories for the family for busy moms who do not have time to read and follow an in-depth pattern. If you are looking for something you can make while waiting in line to pick up your child from school or without much concentration, then let’s turn that yarn to fashion together.

When I am not working on a design or at my full-time job, I love to spend time with family, travel, read, and most of all, go on mission trips. I love to help those who are in need by providing medical help and help in advancing their education. To fulfill this cause, I have dedicated a part of what I make from my patterns towards it.
