Corset Halter Top

September 26, 2017



This pattern is actually just a modification of my Easy & Quick Crochet Top, minus the ribbed effect and strap. I tweaked the design into a halter style and open back corset so you can easily adjust the pattern to fit you perfectly.

You can wear this pattern as a bikini top or make it longer to suit your style.

Instructions
Size: S/M

Foundation chain:
Make a slip knot and ch 25 or as long as you want your top to be.

Row 1:
Hdc in 3rd chain from hook and across, ch 2, turn.

Row 2 - 14: 
Ch 2, turn your work and hdc in each sts across. Total 14 rows of hdc for the back.

For bigger size add a few more rows until row 16/18.

Now we are going to shape the cup and increase the number of stitches.

Row 15: 
Ch 4, hdc in 3rd and 4th ch from hook, hdc in each sts across.

Row 16: 
Ch 2, turn, hdc in each sts across.

Row 15 and 16 will be counted as the first pair of rows with the same height. Continue with the increase and make 5 more pairs of row with the same height from row 17-26.

Row 17-26: 
Repeat the pattern on row 15-16 alternately.

Continue to make the string:
Ch 100, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and across.

After you sl st in the last chain, continue to hdc in each sts on row 27.

Row 27: 
Hdc in each sts across.

Row 28-29: 
Ch 2, turn your work and hdc in each sts across.

Now we are going to decrease the number of stitches.

Row 30: 
Ch 2, turn , hdc in each sts across untill 2 sts remain.

Row 31: 
Ch 2, turn your work and hdc in each sts across.

Row 32-39: 
Repeat the pattern on row 30-31 alternately.

Now we have 6 pairs of increase on the left side and 6 pairs of decrease on the right side.

If you want to make this top in bigger size just add a few pairs of increase and decrease on both side.

Row 40 divides the first and second cup. Start to increase on row 41.

Row 40: 
Ch 2, turn , hdc in each sts across untill 2 sts remain.

Row 41-65: 
Repeat the steps from row 15-39 to shape the second cup.

Continue to make hdc on the next 14 rows for the back.

Row 66-79: 
Ch 2, turn your work and hdc in each sts across.

Now we are going to make the holes for the string.
Ch 2, turn, hdc in nxt st, *ch 1, skip nxt st, hdc in the nxt 5 sts*, ch 1, skip nxt st, hdc in the nxt 6 sts, repeat * to *, ch 1, skip nxt st, hdc in last 2 sts. Ch 1, turn, sc in each sts across.

Continue at the base of the top.
Ch 2, hdc in each of the hdc spaces along the base of the top.

Continue to make the holes for the other side.
Ch 2, hdc in nxt 2 sts, *ch 1, skip nxt st, hdc in the nxt 5 sts*, ch 1, skip nxt st, hdc in the nxt 6 sts, repeat * to *, ch 1, skip nxt st, hdc in last 2 sts. Ch 1, turn, sc in each sts across. Ch 1, fasten off.

Make the string for the corset.
Ch 250 and make a chain. If you want your string to be thicker, sl st or sc along the chain. Tie a knot at both ends.

Weave in ends.

Insert the string in zig zag style.

And we’re done. 
Yippie :)
