I’m so excited to share this top with you guys! I had so much fun creating it! I love strappy little tops and I love how this one is full coverage around the bust area. Of course, it’s adjustable around the neck and back because you can wrap and tie it as tight or as loose as you like.
Most of this pattern is a repeat and it is very easy to do. I’d say it is beginner friendly! All of the stitches are worked back and forth. There is decreasing by crocheting the first two stitches together and the last two stitches together in each row. The only stitch used throughout the whole pattern is half double crochet! We do work in the third loop of our half double crochet to give it a nice texture. I inserted a little diagram showing you exactly which loop is the third loop so to avoid any confusion.
This pattern below is for size small/medium.
Funky Wrap Top Crochet Pattern
o Worsted Weight #4 Yarn
o 4.5 mm Crochet Hook
o Yarn Needle
Abbreviations/ Stitches Used:
o Chain (ch)
o Stitch (st)
o Half Double Crochet (hdc)
o Half Double Crochet Two Together (hdc2tog)
Notes: This pattern is worked back and forth in the front 3rd
loop of half double crochets. Working into the front third
loop is done by going into the loop directly below the front
1.) Ch. 31 hdc into 2nd st from hook. Continue making one hdc in each st until end of row.
2.) Ch. 1, turn. Into the first st, make one hdc into the 3rd
loop (*see notes) into each st across.
3-26.) Repeat #2
27.) Ch 1, turn. Hdc2tog. Place st marker in very first st of row. (This is where you will place strap at the end). Make 1 sc in each st across until the last 2 st. Hdc2tog.
28.) Repeat #27 for each row until there’s only 1 st left.
Fasten off. Attach yarn to other side of top.
For middle cinching: From your two stitch markers, count to row #13. Using a yarn needle and a long piece of yarn make a running st straight down and back up the row. Tie both ends of yarn tight while pushing down on the fabric until it is cinched to your liking. Secure your knot and weave in ends.
For straps: Attach yarn to the st where your first st marker is.
Make a chain of 65 and fasten off. Repeat for next side.
Weave in any remaining ends.
You’re all done 🙂
