This top gets its name from the Cempasuchil flower (or mexican marigold) also known as the flower of the dead. It’s the flower used in the altars and ofrendas during Dia de Muertos in Mexico. It’s color and aroma transports me back to my favorite tradition of the year, and the heritage of my Mexican upbringing, while also adding a touch of vintage inspiration.
This top is worked bottom up with raglan decreases, the sleeves are worked first, separately, and then joined to the body.
There’s an 8 round pattern repeat texture that will be used throughout the design.

The pattern for these shorts is great! They knitted up really quickly, within a couple of days. Easy to work in the round and the pattern was written simply and was easy to understand. Very happy, would definitely recommend.
Very nice pattern! I just made it longer and added some decrease before starting the strap. Very happy with the fit!
Great pattern! This was my first time knitting with a pattern, and the first time knitting something other than a sock, so I would consider myself a beginner. This pattern was really easy to follow, everything is clear and understandable and the picture at the bottom really helped me understand the increases in the beginning! Can only recommend!
This pattern is not well written. There was no way to obtain the gauge as written with the size of hook specified. As written using the hook and weight specified, this would be gloves for a toddler, not an adult female.
