Hi everyone! today I’m going to show you how to make an easy crochet crop top. This crop top can be converted into 3 different styles, and the best thing about this crop top is that you can wear a bra with straps underneath. the written pattern is available for free the link is in the description bar. You will need aran or worsted or 10 ply yarn, scissors, a 5 millimeter or US H/8 crochet hook, a darning needle and some safety pins or stitch markers. Today I’m using Lion Brand Jeans and the color faded, it’s 100% acrylic but it’s super soft and easy to work with. Today I’m making this top in a size extra small for instructions for all sizes check out the link here, the post also teaches you how to measure yourself to get the perfect fit.
To begin create a slipknot any way you like for this pattern we’re going to be using a foundation single crochet chain. It makes the top stretch and easier to put on, insert your hook into the loop and chain 2 insert your hook into the first chain yarn over and pull through a loop you should have two loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through one loop you should have two loops on your hook the stitch you just created will be the chain of your single crochet and then you’re going to yarn over and pull through two loops you’ve created your first foundation single crochet.
Now you’re going to insert your hook in between the chain and the single crochet yarn over and pull through one loop yarn over pull through one loop again and then yarn over and pull through two loops you’ve now created your second foundation single crochet and you’re just going to repeat these steps. Insert your hook into the space in between the chain and the single crochet yarn over pull through one loop yarn over pull through one loop yarn over pull through two and you’re just going to repeat this process until your foundation single crochet chain is long enough to fit around your overbust I did 84 foundation single crochets and I’m normally a size extra small.
