Fire Escape Socks – Knitting Pattern

Inspired by the cherry blossoms down my street in Astoria, with their pink flowers that only last a week, this is a sleeveless top, that can also be worn as a vest, and if knitted with cotton yarn, it’s a great spring and summer garment.

Have you seen on those period dramas or film, how during the day women always wore aprons? Not only working women or those working as servants in big houses (I’m thinking Downton Abbey) but also just regular everyday women.

Astoria Top – Knitting Pattern

The knitted top search led me to a lot of beautiful tops, but I never felt truly confident that it would fit my body type. Most bralettes are designed with smaller chests in mind, which sometimes have made me sol jealous of cups A and B.
