Introducing the Gresham Park Top!


The Gresham Park Top was inspired by a top I saw on a popular clothing store’s website. I of course made my own modifications but I loved the idea of mixing a fun almost polka dot pattern with a simple stripe. The top has a simple drop shoulder and a short length sleeve. Its fairly fitted with 2″ of positive ease.


This design is available in two sized patterns one for girls and one for women. Here’s some sizing info.

Girls: 2(4, 6, 8, 10)
Chest: 21”(23”, 25”, 26”, 28”)
Finished chest: 23”(25”, 27”, 28”, 30”)

Women: XS(S, M, L, 1X, 2X, 3X)
Chest: 28”(32”, 36”, 40”, 44”, 48”, 52”)
Finished chest: 30”(34”, 38”, 42”, 46”, 50”, 54”)

I have also provided a simple schematic. This will help you choose the size that’s right for you. You can read more about that HERE.


The pattern is rated as an intermediate level pattern. There’s quite a few color changes (I’ve written it so there’s not a ton of ends to weave in) and the stitch pattern on the top portion may be a bit tricky at first. I have also included a stitch chart to help you with that.

For my samples I used Cascade Yarn’s Ultra Pima (read my detailed yarn review HERE). which is a 100% cotton DK weight yarn. I was so exited to use this yarn! I had been looking at it for a while. First, there are so many beautiful colors to choose from. Second, the yarn is perfect for a project like this. I really liked the quality of the yarn. I haven’t used very many cottons that I’ve liked so I was definitely impressed by this one. I washed both of my samples and they came out looking great!

  1. I love your patterns, I have almost all of them. Thanks for the sweet deal on the ebook! 🙂

  2. Yesterday I purchased your Two Stripe Beanie pattern and made it up last night in a chile size. In a few words ” I love it!” I make hats and scarves for my church to take to the shelter in November and after using many different free hat patterns found on the internet I must say yours is the best. Love the unique look of the brim and the stripes. Thank you again, look forward to using many more of your patterns.

    1. Thank you! So glad you like it 🙂

  3. […] Looking at the stitch definition I’d be careful with any colorwork. While it will work great for stripes if you do any colorwork the yarn being carried may peek through the stitches. Here’s a great example of how nicely it stripes. I made the Gresham Park top this summer and it made for a wonderfully light, breathable top. You can find more about this pattern HERE […]
