Summer top "Cap Ferrat"

I had a leftover yarn from the Aughnacloy sweater and decided to make something light and "summery". The result is top "Cap Ferrat". I named it after a famous French Riviera resort where this kind of garment would be very appropriate.
The body of the top is knitted in seed stitch, the picot trim and the straps are crocheted. I agree with fellow knitters who find that the combination of knitting and crochet elements in one garment is an interesting design idea.
There are crocheted lace strips inserted on both sides of the top.
