Let me just start by saying I love this top. It has everything you need in one top. It comes with a glorious mock neck collar, sleek halter sleeves, cropped nicely at the midriff, and is light and airy.

If you’re wondering how you could make this top too, well I’m giving you the full written free pattern down below. Plus this crochet crop top also comes in 9 all-inclusive sizes. Yay!

 

DESIGN INSPIRATION

 

I believe crop tops are here to stay for a while and I wanted a top that checks up in all the right boxes.

I love the idea of the mock neck as you don’t see this style very often and the cut and length make it light enough to wear throughout the warmer months.

And if you switch up the yarn, then you’ll get a warmer top for those chillier days.

And did I forget to mention that this top also comes with its matching bikini bottom too? But as always, it pairs really well with those cute shorts or jeans just as well too.
