Crop Top Pattern Round Up

Woohoo it’s finally SUMMER!!!!!

Summer is my absolute favorite season. It always has been. While I currently live landlocked, I’m a mermaid at heart. I miss the ocean soooooo much. Our family’s goal is to vacay in Hawaii in 2022 (our ten year reunion from living there) with 6 other families. It’s going to be crazy and amazing. Hopefully I can see some sort of ocean before then though.

Let’s get back to crochet. Since I’m feeling summer and my not so baby cousin is a lover of crop tops, I went on a search to find the perfect pattern for her. I ended up deciding on the the Empress Crop Top from New Moon Designs. But there are so many more fun ones to try so here is a list of my favorites. Some free some paid. These are all from designers I stalk on Instagram too. I love being able to give a little shout out to my favs.

The yarn I’m using is Bamboo Pop by Universal yarns. 50% bamboo 50%cotton. It’s amazing to say the least. Soft, vibrant, and easy to work even with a tiny hook. Big perk while purchased at my local yarn shop and not a big box store, it’s still inexpensive.

Here are my top 3 favorite free patterns
