RHYTHMIC: Crochet Top Pattern

Crochet motifs that I have posted several months ago will give you endless possibilities!

Yeah! 😉

For example, you can crochet such a feminine V-neck top with asymmetric hem and get ready for your next vacation. Layer this ornate piece over swimwear, pair it with shirts or jeans for an effortless bohemian look.

I suggest to crochet it in white or beige cotton or linen because:

  1. Cotton and linen yarns are perfect for hot weather (you won’t feel comfortable in 100 % wool or acrylic tops in summer, though I’ve already seen several wool crop tops made by beginners 😲 😱 😰 )
  2. White and beige make any outfit look crisp, modern and fresh, they look perfect with lots of other colors.
  3. White and beige drapey tops have timeless appeal, they’re a wardrobe essential for any style. They are just stunning if you want to catch attention! 🙂

GARNET: Dress or Top

Elegance should be enduring, it should transcend fashion and trends and focus on something that is beautifully eternal. This pattern is written to bring out your feminine proportions, even if they are somewhat hidden :). This Garnet Dress or Top will suit girls and women who, like me, have broad shoulders, thin arms, rectangular body type, not well-defined waist, a small tummy (or none at all) and who want to make a wearable crocheted piece. This tutorial offers instructions for making adjustments to your figure (if you are smaller or taller), create an off-shoulder garment, or finish it with more covered neckline. Instructions for crocheting more solid rows at bust level are included.

Design elements:

  • Raglan decreases create an optical illusion of smaller shoulders comparing to classical round yokes that look best on narrow-shouldered women. Broad shoulders and thin arms are covered with small cup sleeves made simultaneously with front and back (without cutting off the yarn for crocheting each sleeve).
  • Raised back neck gives more comfortable fit, while accented waist creates more flattering and feminine silhouette.
  • This project is worked seamlessly in the round, in two directions: from bust towards the neckline, then from bust towards the hem. It allows to choose the best fit for your bust and desired coverage at neckline (while you would need to decide about neckline-coverage right away if you crochet the whole garment from the top down).
