The stitch pattern used to crochet the In Bloom Lace Pullover reminds me of a trellis with tiny blooming flowers.  The crochet lace stitch is an easy stitch pattern worked in a 4-row repeat. The sleeves are loose and can easily be adjusted to sit at the elbow, 3/4 length or full length as pictured.  Also, customize the bodice to any length. The entire pattern for crochet top is worked in one piece making it the perfect crochet top pattern for beginners.
