Why this detailed crochet tutorial is not shared in blog as other FREE patterns?

There are many Etsy shops who search for free patterns on the internet and then resell them as their own. Probably every second crochet pattern offered on Etsy was taken from a magazine (vintage or new one) or from free blogs with charts. Some people create/repost more or less similar charts to attract more visitors to their blogs and all those free charts/free patterns appear one day on Etsy. I can name many of such Etsy shops and provide links to the original free patterns :).

I do not wish to support these shops – drawing HQ charts for this dress took a while as well as describing all stitches. Yes, it is FREE addition to all those crocheters who already purchased pattern for crop top with the same round and square motifs.

Crochet crop top PATTERN – by Free People

What’s more perfect for summer crochet outfit than a sexy crop top, allowing your skin to breathe? This irresistible design with vintage-inspired flared sleeves is a crochet dream come true. Style yours with high-waisted trousers to temper the shorter silhouette or with a maxi skirt for a glamorous, head-turning bohemian look.

I started making this pattern when it appeared on Free People website. However, I think it is better to publish it for those who missed purchasing it and would like to crochet the one of their own.

Love the look of this top but hate breaking the yarn after completing each motif? Me too! For this top additional photo-tutorial is included explaining how to crochet such round motifs without cutting off the yarn and how you can finish the loop of square motifs in each sleeve without hiding lots of ends. After grasping this NO-YARN-BREAKING concept you will be able to crochet all motif-garments without doing any harm to yarn skeins (and saving your time : ))

This crochet pattern is given for bust circumference 91 cm/36”. I have included suggestions on how big should be your gauge if you wish to crochet this crop top for bust circumference 84-89 cm/33’’-35” and 96-101 cm/38-40’’. In this case you will need to use another yarn and/or hook (for example, for bust 101 cm/40’’ the width of each round motif will be just 1 cm (0.4”) larger than in the original top shown in photos).

I’ve also noticed that some not reliable pattern-shops recopied instructions for doilies published in vintage crochet magazines to promise you the same crochet top. Come along after you have received complete refund from them because such patterns show how to make similar looking doilies but offer vague and not tested connections between motifs in sleeves so that you will need to find your own way of arranging everything into the ORIGINAL crochet top shown in the cover photos.

Tunic for yarn leftovers – PATTERN

What is most essential to crochet your wearables neatly?

First of all is the yarn! The thicker is the yarn the faster and thicker will be your clothing garment, the more protruding will be all seams and imperfections, the most likely you will not want to wear it outside the house. Second, whether you crochet loose or tight? I’d be very careful with loose crochet stitches – in some boho garments they look beautiful and in more classical apparel they will imply crocheter’s negligence. Third, is the blocking of your completed garment, because this final step reveals the beauty of all stitches.

crochet sweater PATTERN for sizes XS-4XL

I love summer crochet garments made with fingering yarn weight (4 ply) and when several rows of solid double crochet stitches emphasize the contrasting lacy geometric patterns. Such garments remain lacy enough, not too thick to make you sweaty, and do not take ages to complete.

In this project I have combined 6 different colours – LEFT OVERS remaining after finishing this off shoulder tunic, diagonal jacketmy boho tunic with tassels, this tunic, three 50-gr balls of cotton/rayon (I loved the dark blue colour even if the yarn shop had 3 balls only : )) and light blue yarn that was left after completing a very old project made for my husband’s sister 8-9 years ago. She put on some weight since then and gave her present away :).

Two colours were originally of DK-weight/8ply and I divided yarn in 2 strands to have Fingering weight/4 ply.

As you might have seen, I love this combination of blue and beige colours very much:

By the way, Missguided also offers this beautiful cold shoulder dress in their collection:

Missguided cold shoulder crochet dress

Their website states the dress was made made of thick 100 % acrylic yarn. I’d definitely stay away from any type of acrylic for a good breathing summer garment. Acrylic can be quite soft, but deep in their soul, they’re still plastic yarns. It’s not very compy to have plastic on your skin in hot summer.

Recently a team at Plymouth University in the UK spent 12 months analyzing what happened when a number of synthetic materials were washed at different temperatures in domestic washing machines, using different combinations of detergents, to quantify the microfibres shed. They found that acrylic was responsible for releasing nearly 730,000 tiny synthetic particles per wash, five times more than polyester-cotton blend fabric, and nearly 1.5 times as many as polyester (source).

Crochet filet top PATTERN

I have published this little filet pattern in my store http://conceptcreative.store/shop/roses-top-crochet-pattern-crochet-tutorial-in-english/  The top is perfect for layering – pair it with tight-fitting tank tops or sweaters, jeans or skirts. It might be a good idea for some of your left overs. For top in the photo I have used just 130 gram/4.6 oz of 4 ply (UK, AU), Fingering (US), 400 m/100 gr, 440 yards/3.5 oz cotton. But it can be made with thin wool and worn in winter.

But it can be made with thin wool and worn in winter.

The roses are created by filling in a basic mesh pattern with double crochet stitches (in American crochet terms). Filet garments are created with only two stitches: the chain and double crochet. This pattern is easy to follow if you know the filet technique. There are no lengthy instructions like /1 dc, 2 ch, skip 2 ch/ because the filet technique is gridlike and therefore it is not about reading – it’s about crocheting. Grid is the most important thing here.

This pattern includes filet grid for size S, instructions for calculating the amount of stitches if you crochet for bigger sizes, tutorial in English of how to work filet patterns, make necessary decreases for the armholes. Row-by-row description for edge pattern is included.

The pattern is also available on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/166001879/crochet-top-pattern-fillet

My friend received such a blue tunic with long sleeves for her birthday (I crocheted a present for her) – it is one of her favorite now :)). Plus I made a skirt with the same filet roses (with a thicker yarn) for her teenage daughter:
