About this Pattern
If you’re ready to step up and crochet something for you to wear, our sleeveless crochet top is a great starting point. Made of two basic panels and no complicated shaping or stitch patterns, this one will give you the confidence you need to make more clothing in the future.
With this pattern you’ll learn the fundamentals of how two basic shapes can come together to make a functional top. We’ll use a thinner yarn than usual so it has a nice drape and comfortable fit. If you have Lion Brand Beautiful You on hand (or you’re able to find it for sale), that’s a great option. It has since been discontinued but this pattern is versatile enough that you can substitute with another #2 fine weight yarn.
Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We have a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations here on this page as well as written instructions and a tutorial to walk you through our sleeveless crochet top step-by-step.
