Pattern Inspiration

I was inspired to create the Larkin Tee because I wanted a basic top that was easy to make, with no sewing or intense shaping, and was loose and comfortable for spring and summer!

I decided to go with two stitch repeat for this one and create a circular yoke. That way I didn’t have to sew or do much to get the look I wanted.

Pattern Details

The Yarn

The Larkin Tee crochet top pattern is made using Furls Crochet Whims Merino worsted. I used the color way Periwinkle for the original Larkin Tee that I made.

Whims Merino is a worsted (#4) weight yarn is 50% fine superwash merino and 50% nylon. It is a z twist yarn, which creates really great stitch definition. This yarn currently comes in 10 colors.
