The uniqueness of Phlox Lightweight crochet lace peplum top pattern

What’s there not to love in this flared fitted crochet top? Here are a few of the amazing things about this top.

  1. It is lightweight! A perfect garment that can be styled up or down
  2. Uses a combination of stitches that are easy to master! I promise you will not get bored making your version!
  3. You can customize the Phlox peplum crochet top to fit you perfectly.

a. Sleeve length you can adjust how long or short you want your sleeves to be.

b. Neckline depth – You can adjust how deep you want the neckline to be

c. The fit around your waist! I love this part – There are three options for the fit which range from fitted, loose or oversize fit. If you want a more fitted top around your waist, or if you prefer a loose fitting or a plus fitting!

d. The length of your peplum – I took two different photos showing the different lengths of the peplum. You can decide to add more rounds until you have your desired top length.

4. This flared top comes in 9 different sizes – XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL)

5. There is no sewing! Yes, that is right, this lightweight crochet lace peplum top pattern has no sewing at all!
