When I designed this Summer crochet Top pattern, It took me only a few hours because of the fast and easy stitches used. If you know how to make double crochet, chains, and sc, then you can make his Top!
Permit me to introduce you to the “Bliss in Purple Tee” Don’t you just love the elegant look of this Tee? Have you seen the Buttons on the Back? Do you know you can also style this tee with the buttons on the front?
This crochet Summer Top is my new Favorite. I have made a few other tops with this the only one with buttons.
Check out the other Summer crochet tops I’ve designed.

1. Length: increase or decrease the repeats for part of the Body.
Too tight? Increase the number of repeats when splitting for sleeves before joining to work in one piece.
Too loose: Sew together to the desired length once completed.
3. Bust/fitting: Once you join in section 2, check to fit. If too tight, frog back to reduce your increase at the split for sleeves.
