Hot days will come faster than you think. Let’s prepare in advance to fully enjoy the Summer!

Sleeveless tops are a must, so why not look both extravagant and elegant all at once? See our crocheted summer top guide to pick out something for yourself. Each top can be crocheted to a longer length and transformed from a bikini top to a halter top or sleeveless top. Or, if you feel a little more risqué, you can make them as skimpy as you wish. I will add new propositions for the realization to this post periodically, so be sure to visit Your Crochet again. I’m sure each one of us will find something for herself to show off this summer. Enjoy! See our propositions for the best photos, as well as free and paid patterns. Links to the patterns are below.

What yarn to use for crochet summer top?

Choosing the right yarn for crochet patterns can be a challenge, but once you know something about yarn types, it becomes easier. Natural yarns, such as cotton, linen, bamboo, or blends will be great for summer garments, such as summer tops. Why? Because they are breathable, lightweight and take water easily.

Which summer top patterns to choose as a beginner?

Depending on your skillset, choose the ones that are slightly out of your comfort zone! Most of the patterns are quite simple and use basic crochet techniques, but often have nice details. If you’ve never tried lacy patterns, be sure to try them, because they are easier to crochet than you think.

How to style crochet summer top?

Summer tops are among the most versatile garments! You can style them with jeans or shorts for everyday look, or add heels and a skirt for evening attire. Summer tops often feature openwork, so make sure you’ve got a nice bra underneath, if you choose to wear one. Crop tops will be a perfect choice for summer festivals!
