Casual Crochet Top Free Pattern

crochet casual top free pattern

Well, I love crop tops and today I’d like to share this free casual crochet top pattern. This summer is so hot so I’ve chosen a short version, but you can easily crochet it any length you want. This is a perfect length for the beach or go out at night. You can also wear it with high waisted skirt and cardigan. I think it will be a great addition to your fall wardrobe.

    That is such a cute top! It can be dressed-up (to go out) or comfy casual… Beautiful! I love the stitch details too. Awesome!

  2. SILVIA says:

    I HAD BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS TYPE OF YARN WITHOUT KNOWING WHICH ONE IS IT, NOW I LEARNED IS STRETCH AND COTTON, PERFECT FOR THE SKIRT I WANT TO MAKE AND WILL MAKE THIS TOP ALSO AS A SET. THANKS VERY MUCH.

  3. Beatriz says:

    Ive started this beautiful top. Made a ch 230 to begin with. I noticed that in row 33 it decreases to 184 and then increases to 276 in rows 34-36. I hope this is the correct count or I will have to restart it again. Any input?

  4. Beatriz says:

    I’ve begun this project with a ch of 230. So far s o good – when I reached row 33 it decreased and now on row 34 it increased – could this be correct? I hope so or I’ll have to undo these rows. Can you offer any advise? Thanks

  5. Doriane says:

    Can someone please explain the first part to me. I don’t get it! Should I chain multiples of 5 and 3ch then chain 222 and join to the very first chain or to the first chain of the 222? My multiple of 5 is 160ch and with the 3ch i chained 163ch.

  6. Janice says:

    Hello, this is a beautiful top and I would like to know if here is a video tutorial of it? That would be awesome.
    Thank you!

  7. Rachel says:

    Please help !
    I don’t understand why the increase at what appears to me to be the area where it should be the smallest part of the garment – I’m very confused.
    I’m on my second attempt at making this for my daughter.. the first one came out way to small and she is only tiny at an Australian size 6. I’m now using a larger hook.
    I cannot get any kind of elastic yarn in Australia, (well not that I could locate anyway).
    Thanks

    You can get Nako yarn on Etsy or Ebay, just do a search of elastic yarn and it will come up. Or you can order Hikoo Cobasi elastic sock yarn online which is also elastic but mainly natural fibres. Failing that you can even just crochet/knit with a strand of elastic thread held doubled with your non elastic yarn like this http://www.clover-mfg.com/oceania/products/elastic/

  9. Veronica says:

    Hello Jane! I love the top that you made and I would love to make some of my own and for a friend. I can’t find the Nako yarn. Is there an other yarn that I can use to achieve the same result als the Nako yarn? Does the yarn weight matter a lot for this project? Because I found some elastic sport yarn.

    Thanks

    Hi! Could one of you ladies help me? Did she mean 2.00mm crochet hook? If so, what’s the letter for that crochet hook? Sorry I’m kind of new at this.

  11. efi trivola says:

    Sorry but I can’t understand row 5 it says 4 dc in next ch- 4space dc in next sc repeat from to around so far everything is understood but at the end of the round where I crochet 2 dc in the first ch-4 space has already 4 dc I am so confused help me what I am doing wrong?

    • Jane says:

      Please read the pattern carefully. You should end the 4th round with DC to the 1st sc. It is mean that you will start a new round from the middle of the chain space. Then make 3chs and dc in the same (ch-space), follow the pattern and finish with 2 dc in the 1st ch space

  12. Denise says:

    What is the gauge? I am using a different yarn (Lang Yarn’s Moina) & hook size (2.25mm). I can adjust accordingly if I know the gauge. Thanks!

  13. Alissa Unyayeva says:

    Hi there! Top looks awesome!
    I can’t work out what I’ve done wrong. The beginning chain is 220 sts is that right? Then in round 6 I finish with 2 dc in the same st & i have 2 sts left in a row. Should I just make ch2 & slip st at the end? Or I should’ve started with chain 222 in the first place?
    Thanks a lot in advance

  14. Alissa Unyayeva says:

    Sorry, yes 219))) + ch3 makes 222sts but round 3,4,5 are multiples of 5 & rounds 7,8,9 are multiples of 3. It doesn’t make sense to me:( plz help
