Layla's sun top was knitted from a pattern a friend shared with me and is also a free pattern on the internet. Below is a link for the pattern.

type in sun top and it will take you straight to the pattern
I also knitted Layla a floppy-earred bunny with a sun top too....wish I had some pics to share of the bunny....Layla was so eager to take it with her before I had a chance to snap a few pics. She has already put in a request for a bear so I will be knitting two bears, one for Bradyn and one for Layla. They both ask for a bear.... I love it when they enjoy the handmade knits...... knitted with lots of love!
The sun top and bunny were both such fun and easy projects I finished in just about 6 to 8 hours each. There are many variations you can make with this pattern which is another thing that makes it fun to knit. I love to knit a quick and easy project ever so often. My plans are to knit another sun top for Layla with a few changes to the pattern. The next one will be green with a rib of bright pink along the bottom with bright pink flowers on the bodice.
Hope it want be so long before I post again. Enjoy your summer.... a good time to head to the beach.... I am counting down the days! I love summer time, don't you? What plans do you have?
