This sleeveless crochet top pattern is perfect for the summer season or any time of the year. It can be worn in different styles and outfits, making it easy for you to get lots of use out of this one.
It is the perfect crochet top to go with a skirt or your favorite pair of denim jeans! So whatever the occasion, this top pattern is perfect!
How it’s Made
This easy crochet pattern is worked in two rectangles, which are joined together at the shoulders and sides. The simple construction makes it super easy to customize the sizes for the neck and arm openings.
The stitch pattern is perfect for beginners who are comfortable with seaming and constructing a top.
The only stitches used are the double crochet and the half double crochet with chain stitches. Then single crochet stitches for the edging.
For the seam, I like to use the mattress stitch, which keeps things nice and flat for you.
As for the shoulder seam, you have the option to sew all the way across, or leave a bit of an opening. The opening is perfect if you plan on wearing this top with a skirt or another dressy outfit.
The free pattern includes women’s sizes from XS to XL. However, it can easily be customized to fit any size in the multiple provided.
The pattern has an ease of 6 inches, but you can modify that as well if you like.
I used Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn with a 3.5 mm crochet hook. The label does not specify the yarn weight, but it is a fine #2. It is a soft cotton/acrylic blend, and is very nice to work with.

- You can also add the edging around the neck opening and the bottom if you like.
