The Summer Top is made with only basic crochet stitches – absolutely perfect for beginners! So if you know how to make double crochet, chains and simple crochet, then you can make this Summer Top!

I used hook 3,5 mm for this project.

Difficulty Level: Level 1 – Easy, for beginners

US crochet term:

CH/s – chain/s
SC – simple crochet
HDC – half double crochet
DC - double crochet
SK - skip
T - turn
ST/s - stitch(es)
REP - repeat


Pattern Notes
1) Ch 3 at beg of row counts as dc throughout.
2) You need 6 chains for one "cluster"
3) For shown instructions I made 3 basic clusters = (3 x 6 chains) 18 chains for beg.
4) For size XS use 72 chains (12 x 6 chains)
5) The below instructions make 1 rectangle. Make in total 2 rectangles.

1st row: ch 72 (a sequence of 12 basic clusters), ch 3 (for 1 dc), continue dc 1 into each chains (ch) = 72 dc, turn

2nd row: sc, repeat ch 6, sk 5 st, sc, turn


3nd row: rep into each chain space (one cluster): sc 1, hdc 1, dc 5, hdc 1, sc, until the last chain space, you will make 12 archs, turn


4th row: ch 3, ch 3, 1 sc (into the 3rd dc from the previous row = you are the middle of the arc),
repeat ch 5, 1 sc in the 3rd dc of next arc, rep until the last arc, then ch 3, dc 1 in the last st, turn


5th row: ch 3, rep 1 dc into each ch, until the last, turn = 72 dc


6th row: ch 3, 2 dc in the 2nd and 3rd st, ch 2, skip 2 st, rep * 3 dc in the next sts, ch 2, sk 2 st, repeat from *, turn


Well done my friends! The pattern is alive!
Then continue and repeat the pattern.

7th row = 1nd row = ch 3, continue 1 dc into each chain (ch) = 72 dc


8th row = 2nd row

9th row = 3rd row etc.


330 mm / 13 inch (wides width) x 470 mm / 18,5 inch (long side)
Make in total 2 rectangles.

Sew shoulders – about 12 chains all together
Sew sides – 2/3 of the rectangles.

That it is! Weave your ends. Now you know how to crochet a wonderful summer top!
