Fall has always been my favorite season of the year. This time of year makes me want to exercise, shop and most of all create. I love going out on the back patio and crochet for hours in the fresh crisp air. It just gives me so much energy. This past weekend was one of those weekends. The sun was out, but it was about 70 degrees so I sat out for hours crocheting and loving it. This made me think of some patterns that are especially appropriate for this time of year.

Well, I don’t know about you, but now that I know how to crochet, I just can’t see myself spending that kind of money when I can just go home and make it! And since I’m not ready to let summer go quite yet, I finally decided to make one, the Trendy Top Overlay. Maybe I’ll get a few wears out of the top before it gets too cold.
