I am always on the lookout for the perfect crochet top for
year-round wear. It needs to be something that can be worn with a tank top,
short- or long-sleeve shirt-and I love a garment with an interesting stitch-pattern
In this free crochet eBook, we have compiled four free top
patterns that you will love to crochet and wear. Each top will teach you a new
stitch and construction method.
by Katie Himmelberg creates a modern twist on this vintage design. This demure
crocheted vest is worked in a textured shell pattern, creating lovely scalloped
edges. The worsted-weight tweed yarn makes this a quick and easy summer project
that transitions easily to fall.
The Elfin Tank by
Laura Gebhardt is a great project for the summer. This crochet tank top begins
with a curved treble crochet neckline. The front and back are then worked
separately in extended single crochet. And this adorable little top is perfect
for a beginning crocheter.
The perfect lace crochet cardigan, the Arc De Triomphe Cardigan by Annette Petavy uses simple shaping and
an easily memorized lace pattern to create a fabulous crochet bolero. This top
would work perfectly to dress up jeans or pair with an elegant little black
dress. Try working fewer rows to create a sassy crochet shrug or work more rows
for a classic cardigan.
The Flora Kimono
by Judith L. Swartz was designed as a scaled-down poncho transformed into a
loose-fitting wrap. The mesh base creates the perfect background on which to
highlight appliquéd crocheted motifs. Arrange the crocheted flowers in your own
design for a unique top.
