This pattern was created with beginners crocheters in mind.
Only using the most basics of crochet stitches, the chain stitch and the double crochet stitch, you can create this simple but beautiful top.

While designing this pattern I was looking to create a top to be worn during Spring and Summer, but if you pair it with a nice jacket you could enjoy it year-round.

One thought on “Basic Crochet Top Pattern – Free Crochet Pattern

  1. Yarn! Well on behalf of the crochet and knit community may I say its about how you do it and knowing your kitties. I hoard yarn (my stash is coming close to over lifetime limits) as anti technology saviors. Yarn can be a great toy for our friends if you are interactive with it, never ever leave it with them treat it like those evil plastic bags put it way out of furry reach when not actively using it. Thread esp with needles should be kept away from furry friends. 20 years ago I could put cross stitching down w/o though. 16 years ago Lucy and Tabatha adopted us, one lucky time of catching baby Lucy with my expensive thread hanging out of her mouth with needle attached and cross stitch took a long nap, hence the crochet addiction. If your furry friend eats every thing then leaving them with yarn is a no-no. If they ignore it then maybe your ok. Note this is kinda like the toilet paper disasters I hear about. 40 years and mine have yet to look twice at it. For the record save your self and furry rulers use recycled bags that can be used many times.
