The Rachel Crop Top pattern is an intermediate, yet easy to follow, crochet pattern worked in sections starting with the main body of the top followed by the bottom band and the top detail work at the neckline. The straps are then worked as part of the final border round. This top was my favorite design from my 2017 Summer line because it is not only flattering on a huge range of different body types, but it is also functional and practical even for those who need to have a large range of motion, like yoga instructors and dancers. I hope that this pattern is as enjoyable for you to follow as it was for me to design and write! I have included lots of photos to help in making the pattern easy to follow!
For this top you will need at least 180 (XS/S,S/M) to 240 (M/L,L/XL) yards of a 100% cotton worsted weight (4) yarn like Lily Sugar ‘n Cream or Peaches ‘n Creme. You will also use a 5.5mm hook (my gauge = 16 sc in 4”) so if you have a naturally loose stitch you may want to move to a smaller hook size (maybe between a 4mm and a 5mm).
Sizing Options available in this pattern: XS/S (32-34A, 32B), S/M (36A, 34-36B, 32C), M/L (34-36C, 32-34D, 32DD), L/XL (36D, 34-36DD)
