Hey guys and dolls! Sorry it has been an eternity since my last post but family life has once again got in the way. But I’m back now and I’ve lots to share with you guys over the next few weeks.
The weather here in Ireland has been relentless, it’s not even a joke anymore. If I’m not mistaken I think it has rained every single day for the last two weeks. I WANT SUMMER NOW! So with that, I’ve decided that my next few patterns will be summer related (yeah!!), and to kick things off I have this super easy halter top.
I used a 5mm crochet hook and worsted (weight 4) yarn to make this crochet halter top.
For a small/medium size I made a chain of 57. If you want it slightly bigger/small just make a chain that is long enough to go from one side of your rib cage to the other side.
After you have chained 57, hdc into 3rd chain from hook. Hdc to end of row. Ch 2 and turn.
Hdc into every stitch across until the end of the row. Ch 2 and turn. Repeat this row until you have completed 14 rows in total.
Ch 2, hdc into next stitch, then hdc2tog, then hdc until you reach the last 4 sts. Hdc2tog, then make 1 hdc into each of the last 2 sts.
Repeat the last row until you have 19 sts remaining.
To make the edges look cleaner I made single crochets all the way around the top. I attached yarn on the top corner and made a chain of 100 and repeated for the other corner. These will be your neck straps. To make the back straps I again attached the yarn to one of the bottom corners and made a chain of 150-200. Repeat for the other corner. For a little more security I also attached the yarn where I began my decreasing ( row 15) and made a chain of 150/200. Repeat on the other side.
You are now finished making your crochet summer halter top. Enjoy!
