free crochet pattern easy summer crochet crop top for beginner by jennyandteddy

Well, hello there, friendly crocheter! I am so excited to share this fun summer pattern with you today! Crop tops for summer are so popular right now – they’re everywhere in the stores and it seems everyone is wearing them. So, what’s a girl to do when she sees something she likes? Make a crochet pattern for it, of course!

I tried making my own easy summer crop top crochet pattern and, you guys, it turned out amazing! I am in love with this pattern and I know you’re going to love it too.

So, here’s the lowdown. I wanted this pattern to be easily doable for beginners, because it’s so discouraging to see a ton of cool patterns and not be able to do the complicated stitches.  Not in my patterns, I say! My easy summer crop top pattern uses only basic stitches like half double crochet and the crochet in the back loop stitch to create the ribbing effect.

I know that sounds intimidating, but it’s really not, and I’ll walk you through how to do it.  I think the extra touch of the ribbing effect really gives the whole piece a beautiful texture and makes it look so much more sophisticated than just a single stitch could.

I also added some fancy crochet lace at the top that is so easy to do! You just skip two stitches and then double crochet in the next. Super easy, right?!

I used cotton yarn for this one, because it’s so much softer than the acrylic yarn. It’s also a lot more breathable, which is important when it’s so hot out! If you want to get extra daring, you can pair this crop top pattern with the crochet bikini pattern I have for you. It’s an awesome way to create your own summer swimwear!

Size: Ladies Size 8. You can customize the piece to match your size.

Make slip knot then chain 91 (or until the chain is at the length you want the width of your bottom of the crop top to be) ( about 19 inch) to make bottom of the crop top,

Turn your work ( when you turn your work in each row, do not chain this way will decrease the stitch in each row nicely )

Row1.  start hdc across

Row2.   Hdc in back loop only  across * repeat for 20 rows

Now we are going to make the beautiful lace on the top.

I start with chain3,  skip 2 stitches and make double crochet in next stitch until the end of this row.

Next I chain3 , turn,  and then double crocheted in the space of the previous row with chain 3’s  in between.

So I continued this lace pattern row after row until I got the length that I want to be. Fasten off and leave long tail.

The Edge

Connecting the yarn and starting at the bottom right hand side of your top, double crochet all the way up to the top to make the edging. And leave long tail for making the straps repeat the same process to other side.

For the tie.

Use long tail that we have before by chain away from the top until u get the desired length and fasten off.

Happy crocheting!

  1. Hi, I am really interesting in making the easy summer crop top for my niece. Have crocheted for years–but not clothing. You are very petite. My niece is slim (does triathalons), but is C or D cup on top. Do you think this top will lay flat?
    Any suggestions on how many extra stitches to add? (This will be a surprise gift…so I cannot get a measurement). Last question, what ‘weight’ of cotton yarn (2, 3, 4,?) and how much? 3oz 5 oz etc? Thank you. Cheri

  2. Hi Cheri, Thanks for stopping by my little corner of crochet. for make the adjustment to fit the size you need.
    On the foundation chain I start with 91 chains , so you might increase the chain to 100 or 110 or mre. and at the edge of the croptop. I did was double crochet around the edge maybe you could double crochet again in the second round to increase thickness of the edge.
    hope this help.

  3. yarn weight 110 yard 50 gram.
