Beginner summer crochet top free pattern

Sharing is caring!

Hello, February!, Hope everyone having a great month^^. I made this summer crochet top with the beginner in mind.

I want to make this simple summer crochet top tee to be as simple and easy as possible, that everyone can whip up in a flash!

This summer super simply crochet top could be easy to mixed and match with any jean or skirt, imagine that a boho beach style with jean short or a high waist short skirt would be very cute to match up.

you guy will have fun wearing this cute top.

So I have some white shade of 100% cotton yarn leftover and here they are the beginner perfect summer crochet top tee I support.

They are made from just 2 pieces of rectangles with mostly double crochet stitch. I used small crochet hook size 3.o mm so the garment is dense and the result when I finished it and I think I can wear it without have to wear a slipper underneath. yeah!

Let’s get start!

– I used Lion brand 24/7 cotton yarn weight 4 aran. I use around 700-800 yard.

– 3 mm crochet hook

Sewing yarn needle

-stitch marker

Gauge: 4 double crochet stitch x 4 row  = 1 inch

Skill and abbreviations

You will need to know how to make (American crochet term)

-dc which mean double crochet

-sc which mean single crochet

-ch Chain

-slip knot

This pattern is made for beginners!  There is a basic skill level required to make.

If you don’t understand any technical crochet words, don’t worry I got you cover!

Here is a video titled ‘free crochet class on craftsy‘ and a free pdf file titled ‘the beginner’s guide to crochet‘. These will explain a lot for you.

  1. I would like the pattern for this top, but not all the pictures. It takes too much ink to print all the pictures. I just want the instructions. Is it possible to get them without the pictures?

  2. I had print friendly version under the post you can print out.

  3. How must would I have to adjust the pattern if I use Lion Brand Comfy Cotton? It’s a light 3 weight.

  4. Hi carol, if you use cotton light 3 weight I suggest hold them double while crochet that would be fine.

  5. Thank you for sharing!

  6. Does anyone sell these? Im not a chrochet’r but want to buy 1 for my wife?

  7. Hi Mike, you could go on etsy there are some shop do custom made.
