I have decided to start compiling some of my favorite patterns in different categories since there are so many out there and lets face it, it can be hard to know where to start when seeking out new patterns & designers! Since summer is officially here I wanted to start with some fun crop top designs by some wonderful designers!
The Rachel Crop Top was my first pattern EVER and I am still so happy to see people enjoying the project and the design! It is written with sizing for XS/S (32-34A, 32B), S/M (36A, 34-36B, 32C), M/L (34-36C, 32-34D, 32DD), and L/XL (36D, 34-36DD). You will need worsted weight (4) yarn and a 5.5mm hook.

The Penelope Crochet Set Tank and Cardigan Pattern by Ashlee of Dream Crochet Shoppe is a fun combo pattern that includes sizing for US Women Small-4X. $9.50
The Everyday Crop Top is one of my all-time favorite summer staple designs, the shape is able to “hold the girls in” nicely. This design is my go to as a bra replacement in the summer and has options for the straps so if you don’t like the halter style, you can have it criss cross and only tie at the bottom! Sizing for XS/S & M/L but I plan to expand the sizing on this one soon! You will need worsted weight (4) yarn and a 5.5mm hook. $5.00

The designer states that “This novice level pattern is written tutorial style, meaning it can be made in any size required, using any yarn and hook size. While a DK weight yarn is highly recommended for this project, Equinox will work up beautifully using sport, fingering, or even light worsted weight yarns.” $6.48
