Today I have a pretty basic crop top pattern for you all to try. If you are rather new to the crochet world and want to learn how to make small pieces of clothing, I think this top is right up your street.
Weight 4 cotton yarn
3mm crochet hook.
Ch 16. Dc into 4th ch from hook. Dc to 2nd last st. Place 2dc, ch1, 2dc into last stitch. Rotate the piece so you are working on the opposite side of the ch. Continue with dc to the end. Turn.
Ch 3. Dc in every stitch until you reach the ch1-sp at the top of the cup. In this space place 2dc, ch1, 2dc. Continue with dc to end of row. Repeat this row until the cup covers your breast.
Ch 3, skip next st, hdc into following st, **ch 1, skip 1, hdc into next st. Repeat from ** to end of row.
Turn your work without making any ch at the beginning of the row. Slip stitch into the very first ch1-sp. ***5dc into next ch1-sp, slip st into next ch1-sp. Repeat from *** to the ch1-sp at the very top of the cup. Here you place 3dc, ch 200, slip st into each ch down along, then place 2dc into same space as your 3dc. Slip st into next ch1-sp, ****5dc into next ch1-sp, slip st into next ch1-sp. Repeat from **** to end. Cut yarn and fasten off. Go ahead now and make your 2nd cup in the very same way.
Ch 22. Grab one of your cups and make a dc into the bottom corner space of the cup. Then place 2dc around the end of every dc row of the cup all the way across the cup until you reach the other corner space of the cup. Here you just place 1 dc. Then ch 1, grab 2nd cup and dc into the bottom corner space of this cup. Then continue in the very same way as the other cup. When you have placed the dc into the corner space of this cup continue on without without cutting yarn and make a ch 24. Place a dc into the 4th ch from hook and then place a dc into each ch across making sure you place a dc into the ch 1 that is between the two cups.
At the end of that row, ch 4 and turn.
Skip next st, and dc into the following st. *Ch 1, skip 1, dc into next st. Repeat from * to end. Turn.
Ch 4, dc on top of the dc from previous row, **ch 1, dc on top of dc from previous row. Repeat from ** to end. Repeat this row until you are satisfied with the length you want.
Attach yarn to each of the bottom 4 corners and make separate chains on each corner of 250.

THANK YOU SOOOO VERY MUCH FOR SHARING YOUR AWESOME CROCHET PATTERNS. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. YOU CERTAINLY HAVE TALENT!! I looked for somewhere to subscribe to your website but couldn’t find one – I most definitely want to continue following you. Thank you again, it is so kind of you, Krystal
Hi! Thank you for this awesome pattern. I am almost complete, I’m brand new to crocheting and chaining 200 and 240 seems like a lot? Am I just confused or am I misunderstanding? I have really long straps?
I have no idea why either, I’m trying to decrease the amount of chains and that should work to make the straps smaller
How can I adjust this for my size? I’m a 40DD.
i guess keep going untill you have a big enough size, you might also might to use bra pads they help with measurements
Hi, I don’t understand the part when I make 24 chains after I’ve done the two cups, it’s not clearly explained. I’ve also watched the video but I continue to not understand that. When I reach the end of the chain I make dcs till I go back to the first chain in the cup and then?
is weight 4 the same and 4 ply yarn?
on the cups during the 5dcs and slips, I end with a 5dc right before the center ch 1. My stitch count is fine, the previous hdc row works, but I just don’t end on a slip into the last chain before the center. Any ideas?
this is a late reply, but if anyone is reading this, that happened to me too. all I did was, after finishing the 5 DC, I did a slip stitch into the same chain space and it looks fine 🙂
