I made this pattern in M with Oasis fingering yarn, and it turned out beautiful. The yarn drapes nicely, and feels soft and luxurious. I am now making it again in an XS for another person. Great instructions!
Great pattern! I made with a heavier weight yarn, but still turned out great. It fits really well and the pattern is very easy to follow.
Working with the pattern right now, so far it's very complete and easy to follow. I am really looking forward to having the top completed!! Very pretty pattern.
Summer was not good here this year. 2022 shall see me with Montastrea on!!
Pattern is so easy to follow!
This top is soo cute! Can't wait to make it once I finish a couple of WIPs.

Beautiful pattern design. I’m looking forward to begin this pattern in the very near future.
Beautiful pattern I look forward to making!
I'm in the process of working on this project. I appreciate the easy to follow and clear instructions. This works up really quick.
I love the way they look drape and love your tutorials
Fantastic pattern, easy to crochet which really helpful as I'm recovering from a stroke and had to learn all over although I've been crocheting for 60+ years! Thank you Chandi!
I just love this pattern I cant wait to finish it.
Love this pattern. The pattern is easy to follow and is for either advanced or beginner with a little experience. I will make this many times.
Beautiful crochet sweater pattern!
This pattern was clearly written & easy to complete. I love how the top falls & the dimensions on the body are very flattering! ❤️
Easy to follow, loved the pattern!
This cutting board has met all of our expectations.
I've not yet been able to start this project yet. But the pattern was a very easy pdf to obtain and look very easy to follow along, and this is very important to me since I easily get lost reading patterns
I am working on this sweater at the moment. The pattern is so easy to follow and is working up so nicely. After I finish this one, I'm going to have to make another. I love, love, love this pattern. Give it a try.
I really love this pattern is really easy to follow.
Excellent, easy to follow pattern! I crochet a top for my daughter and she loved it.
Excellent pattern, easy to follow, suitable for beginner level. I crochet a top for my daughter and she loves it.
Excellent pattern. I crochet a top for my daughter and she loved it! Easy for beginners.
I am enjoying this pattern. There is just enough of a pattern to keep it interesting but yet it’s easy to do. I really like the top down, no seam and neck size. It’s nice to find a pattern that doesn’t have a huge neck opening. I am almost done with the yoke. This top is working up quickly for me. The only thing I hope to figure out is adding a little length to the sleeves but I think I can find a way since I have done a lot of crochet. The instructions are clear and very good. I appreciate the stitch count on the rows so I know I’m on the right track.
I've looked over the pattern and am just waiting for finding the right yarn in my stash! Planning on getting started on it soon though, will edit my review then, love the patterns that Expression Fiber Arts offers for free! Their yarn is absolutely beautiful and the patterns are amazing! Thanks!
I think this sweater is beautiful, and I can't wait to crochet it. The pattern downloaded easily.
Absolutely stunning, a really well written pattern highly recommend
Love this cute summer top. So versatile and can be worn with many different outfits. Looks like a pretty straightforward pattern & not too difficult to crochet.
Lovely crochet pattern.
Beautiful! A pattern I want to make for myself....as soon as I finish all the baby blankets in que.
Thank you for this amazing design!
Beautiful can not wait to make this.
