Sunshine Festival Crochet Crop Top

Sunshine Festival Crop Top


You need:
Scissor
Measuring tape
3.5mm crochet hook/ any hook size to obtain gauge
Gauge 15 dc =2.5 x 0.5 inch

Yarn (sport/light worsted)
(approx. 50g of white yarn and a little bit of multicolour yarn of your choice)
In this tutorial I use acrylic but you can use cotton or any type of yarn you like

Stitches used: Ch, sl st, sc, dc, trc

If you worry about this top being see through just sew a lining/bra pads. 
However, if you use darker yarn colour it won't be noticeable or just use smaller hook size for tighter stitch.

This top will fit size S-M. For larger size add a few more foundation chains and more rows till you're satisfy with the coverage.

~If you can’t understand any part of the pattern, please refer to the video tutorial~
