Pretty Tops for Spring and Summer!
The great thing about spring and summer is that it allows us to shed those heavy coats, scarves and sweaters. How nice to throw on a light top over slacks, jeans or a skirt and GO! I chose this collection of tops for their pretty, feminine look but also because they use basic crochet techniques that almost anyone can master. I hope you have fun experimenting.
This sleeveless top is so feminine with the ruffles around the neck and hemline and the cinched waistline. It’s the perfect top for everything from jeans to a long skirt!
Throw this lace top over a tank or plain dress for an instant fashion lift. I love the full sleeves, lacy design and soft neckline!
Everyone loves the comfort and classic fit of a tee, but this one is super special with the diagonal rows created by some clever stitching.
This top is easy and elegant with basic stitches, organized for texture and interest. Make it in solid or stripes for endless different looks.
Everyone’s favorite shell with a little twist. The rows of shell stitches, offset by diagonal chains gives this top a unique look. It’s great for summer or over another top as a vest.
A basic stitch design looks elevated in a top down design that has feminine flair. I love the scalloped hem!
This figure flattering top looks lovely in so many different colors. The interest comes from both the lace stitches as well as the flattering shaping.
A basic file crochet takes on an new look with a figure hugging style and shoulder straps. This would look great over leggings as a tunic or over a bathing suit as a fun beach cover up!
Make this fun crop top to wear with jeans and shorts. The top is classic and basic and allows the yarn to do all the work!
Is it a tee, beach cover, dress or tunic? It would work well for all! This top is so sweet with the playful flair after the bodice.
