Crochet romantic ruffle yarn tank top blouse Daniela


Hello My Crochet Friends!

Do you also love to try different materials and new yarns? I recently discovered ruffle yarns and I promised you that I would try them for various accessories and also interesting and original pieces of your wardrobe.


Ruffle yarns are yarns that allow to create very original things and creative creations. There are so many different versions of ruffle yarns, interesting colored and amazing patterns and endless possibilities of their use.

You can find a report on ruffle yarns here:

For today's video tutorial, I chose a simple and easy and really quick tutorial for an elegant romantic blouse or a cover-up for a tank top, T-shirt, dress and swimsuit.

You can quickly and cheaply replenish your wardrobe with an original piece.

I chose Daniela yarn, white color with silver thread and for joining the Top I used Alize Forever yarn.

The blouse is crocheted from longer strips of cut Daniela yarn. You can make the blouse shorter or longer or even as a light dress or a tunic.


The top is great for summer days, for romantic evenings, on vacations, also for parties.

The pattern is for beginners. You need to know how to crochet single crochets. Everything is explained and shown as always in the video tutorial.

Choose a suitable yarn, a color that suits you and let's start crocheting a top together.

The blouse is crocheted from strips of cut Daniela yarn. The stripes are crocheted together.

You can easily crochet a top for any size - you just need to choose the right length, crochet the neckline for your size, I recommend measuring the circumference around the neckline and crocheting the chain to which you will sew the joined stripes according to this measurement.

The instructions below are for women's size M.


The top is crocheted from one ball of Daniela ruffle yarn: 100g / 30 m / 50% acrylic and 50% polyester



For this pattern you will need 8.00 mm and 2.5 mm crochet hooks.

Stitch markers /20 pieces/.

Scissors and tapestry needle

So let me now get started and tell you what you will need in order to crochet this lovely blouse.


Difficulty Level: Level 1 – for beginners

US crochet terms:

SlSt – slip stitch
CH/s – chain/s
DC - double crochet

TR - treble
SC - single crochet
SK - skip
T - turn
ST/s - stitch(es)
REP - repeat
YO – yarn over




1) The instructions below are for women's M size. You can easily adjust the top to your exact size, according to the circumference of the neckline and the chosen length of the top.

2) Before you start crocheting, take your measurements - the circumference around the neckline and the length to the waist or longer.

Remember that when making your top bigger you will need more yarn.


3) The top consists of a total of 13 joined stripes.

4) The neckline chain is crocheted as a classic foundation chain and single crochets.

5) In my pattern, I made the front part of the top from 7 joined stripes to make it more gathered and the back part from 6 joined stripes. If you want the top to be more or less ruffled, add more or less stripes of ruffle yarn, according to your taste and creativity.




We start with a foundation chain.
We crochet a chain as long as we have measured the circumference of the neckline.

I crocheted a chain long: 88 cm / 34 inches

Join the chain with a slip stitch, make a circle.

Crochet only one row, a row of single crochets, work in the bump (the third loop on the wrong side of the chain).

Finish the row with a slip stitch. Cut the yarn and fasten off.



Cut strips of ruffled yarn of equal length so that the ruffle yarn has an odd number of stitches.

Fold the stripe in half so that one stitch of the ruffle yarn remains in the fold (odd stitch) and crochet the stitches on both sides of the folded ruffle yarn, from the fold towards the cut ends.


Hook 2.50 mm
Yarn: Alize Forever

We crochet as follows: insert the hook into the loops on both opposite sides, crochet 1ch (replacement for 1 sc) and then chain 5. Crochet 1sc in the next loop on the ruffle yarn and then again chain 5 ch.

Crochet in this way in each ruffle stitch until the end of the cut yarn. Always 5 chains between the single crochets.

The 5 chain stitches are a little shorter than the length between the ruffle loops. So the strip is slightly ruffled and expect that its length will be shortened. You can crochet more or less chain stitches depending on whether you want the stripe to be more or less gathered.


Front: 7 stripes

Back: 6 stripes

Crochet the already prepared strips together. I started crocheting from the sixth loop from the bottom on the ruffle yarn. Again, it's up to you if you want to have the stripes joined all the way down or not.

Join the stripes for the front part and then the stripes for the back part. Crochet on the wrong side, the same directions.

Sew the front part and the back panels to a crocheted neckline chain.


I recommend dividing the chain into thirds: a third for the front panel, a third for the back panel and half a third for the shoulders.

For example: 90 / 3 = 30
We divide the parts as follows: 15 + 30 + 15 + 30

Sew the front panel and the back panel, leaving the armholes free, space for the arms.

Sew all loose ends to the wrong side.


We have just crocheted a beautiful elegant top / blouse.

The blouse is loose, fluffy, light and airy. You can wear it over a tank top or T-shirt.

I believe that you will attract attention in this fabulous and elegant tank top at many events, not only in summer.


I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer with this great crochet top.
Enjoy the summer and beautiful sunny days!
