Four Fabulous Free Crochet Tops

Jul 12, 2012


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 or construction.

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.

Wendy's Waistcoat 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.

We've tried to include a little something for everyone, so whether you are looking for the perfect summer tank top or an elegant cardigan, 4 Free Crochet Top Patterns including Crochet Vest, Wrap, Tank Top, and Crochet Cardigan has the perfect crochet top patterns for any occasion. We would love to see your work; share your pictures in the Crochet Me member gallery.
