This lovely and simple top is crocheted using Uneek Cotton DK.   The yarn is shipped  directly to you and the pattern comes from us.

The Beija Flor Top is a very feminine design, ideal for Summer or late Spring. You can wear it with a bikini or with a tank top below the top.

Legend tell us that around the year 1800, a woman with her daughter arrived to the town of Araxá, Minas Gerais, Brazil

It was in the colonial era and single mothers had no future but to become prostitutes in order to survive.

María Bernarda, indigenous, and her daughter Anna Jacinta, mestizo.

Anna Jacinta grew up and was so beautiful, that they started calling her Beija Flor, which in Portuguese means hummingbird, and everyone was bewitched.

Surely these women had whores and poets, literally speaking.

But as the story is committed to romanticism, it seems that this woman “enjoyed” great privileges (as if engaging in prostitution was paradise) because of her beauty, and that the party only ended when she chose with her finger , who would enjoy their sexual attributes.

Construction Notes:
This Top is a Top-Down Raglan Construction, from top to bottom.
This pattern is designed so that it does not fit.
