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! 🙂

 Why Freelancer Top? 🙂

Because all patterns are created in my free time 😉. This is the most flexible occupation for a self-taught crocheter where one can pick a beautiful yarn, guess what it wants to be, freelance a skill one already has, and then wear whatever one wants!

Now I feel like creating and wearing simple and sporty garments that flatter my rectangular body type, can be worn at any leisure occasion, and make me look younger than my 44 😉. I’ll surely let you know when my fingers are itchy to make something more elaborated 😉. Though If YOU want to crochet something more challenging right now – please browse http://conceptcreative.store. Have fun in any case! 😉

I opted for a cake yarn for the first time. Its color changes added more visual interest to the simple stitches. The drapey yarn turned some excessive width into length while the scalloped fringed edge made this top look quite dynamic and proportional. It was designed to give the wearer an energetic boost and positive attitude of a Freelancer! 😉 Feel young and free, capture the mood of the moment and be in control of your own life!

Oversized Poncho-Top :)

I usually do not wear boxy or oversized garments – they don’t look flattering on my broad and straight shoulders and rectangular body type, so just a few of things like wrong length or excessive width hanging under my armholes turn me into a perfect square :). I like crochet sweaters nicely fitted through the shoulders (to slide easily under a jacket) and not too snug or stiff on the body. So I usually shape waist or accent bust and add set-in-sleeves in most of my crochet items (though adjusting sleeves to many sizes is the hardest part, that is why patterns for boxy voluminous garments are less expensive and easier to make).

This project was made for my friend and the top fits her height and width well (sorry, I don’t ask my friends to model my presents if I intend to offer them as patterns : )) – friendship should remain friendship and not a modeling business : ).

I think the scalloped edge made  this voluminous poncho-top more dynamic and proportional, so probably it can flatter other types of body. Fringe optically increased the length, the drapey yarn prevented it from looking like I was absolutely swimming in it :).

Crochet top with variegated yarn and yarn left overs – PATTERN

The beauty of variegated yarn is best revealed with quite simple crochet or knit stitches. I have knitted a couple of rows with stockinette stitch, but the result was boring : ). Endless rows of single or double crochet stitches would not be a great option either because they are known for their stiffness. My skin is rather sensitive and I cannot wear stiff clothes on my shoulders, that’s why I prefer not using more than 2 repeated rows of them in crochet tops. So, a combination of single crochet, half double crochet stitches and chains was chosen for making this contemporary looking drapey top. Besides I could include my yarn left overs of the same grey hue.
