Sunny Day Crochet Top Pattern

Sunny Day Crochet Top Pattern
November 15, 2018 Carly Crochet Coach

The inspiration for this crochet top pattern comes from Crochette Elizabeth Borham, who had a crochet top she bought that she wore until it fell apart. She desperately wanted to replace it with a handmade item so she sent me a photo and I designed a crochet top pattern for her.

My design is denser than the one Elizabeth sent through but I wanted to make sure that the Crochettes could wear this top either with a camisole underneath or nothing underneath on really hot days!

This is a very straightforward, t-shirt style crochet top pattern so once you have your stitch pattern down, this is a very easy make and a wonderful introduction for adventurous beginners who want to delve into garment making. With no increases or decreases, this pattern is perfect for both new and advanced crocheters who want to make something that looks complicated but actually isn’t. Sneaky right?

This crochet top pattern comes in 6 sizes ranging from S to 3XL but it’s a very customisable design – you can increase the body length and sleeve length as you’re making it to suit your own style.
