Summer Top: Crossed Treble Lace
The summer crochet top is everything I had sketched. The concept was for a simple, easy to crochet, and super comfortable garment. The end result is not disappointing.
This tee has been named the “Honeycomb Summer Lace top” because of the look of the lace in the upper section.
Have you ever made a crochet top for yourself? Well, I feel this pattern is ideal for you to try. It uses the basic crochet stitches in a fun way.
You are going to learn some new techniques (stitches). I have added 2 video tutorials for the stitches used, so making this journey pretty easier for you. I promise you, it’s going to be fun crocheting your own summer crochet top.
The lace details in this summer top add a beautiful look making it perfect for warm days. The aim of this design is to create some asymmetry. Like the length of the front and back panels and the ratio of the lace added to the back.
The summer crochet top is available through my Ravelry and Etsy stores.
