17 Awesome Crochet Top and Sweater Patterns


Today I’m sharing with you all a new free pattern to celebrate the release of my new Summer Tops Collection, in 100% linen.

The Jo Top is a very easy to work design, resulting in a very comfy and cool garment, for everyday wear, this summer. Depending on the yarn used it will come out sporty (thin cotton or linen) or a lot more dressy if knit in silk, such as the one shown (malabrigo Mora Mulberry Silk).

So why this name? Jo is the main character in the Funny Face movie, played by Audrey Hepburn. This Top was devised while working some exercises in one of the design workshops I have taught and it is inspired by the Paris of the cultural avant-garde, this character, and of course the actress that plays it, were super inspiring to me.

Knit with 6–13 hanks of Berroco Maya in color 5615 Verde, this tee is knit in pieces—the front is all one piece, with stitches cast on for the sleeves before working the raw neck edge. The back pieces are also knit separately and are extra wide to allow for a dramatic tie-back look—or flip the piece around and wear it as a wrap cardigan!

Waterfall Tunic

This sleeveless tunic is knitted in plain stockinette stitch. It is shaped to suit your body and has an elegant waterfall neck.

This is NOT a stitch-by-stitch knitting pattern for various sizes. It is rather a tutorial how to contruct and knit a similar tunic – and of course you don’t have to use bulky yarn but can use other yarn weights as well. As an example for the calculations, I have given you my numbers.

Tunisian Summer Top

– Fine (2)/Sport-Weight Yarn (18 wpi). I used Spring Garden by Ice Yarns.
– 6.5-mm (K/10.5 US, 3 UK) Tunisian Crochet Hook with a Cable Extension of at least 20” (50 cm).

To build the Tunisian Crochet Summer Top we are going to make two separate panels, the front and the back one. For both panels, we’ll be working bottom-up and crochet the entire panel as a single piece. For the straps, you’ll not have to cut yarn and join again, and we’ll see how later in the pattern.
This top pattern requires some seaming for the sides and the straps.

All the details about sizes can be found in the blog post or in the picture attached.

Sloper is a basic template for a sleeveless sweater that, being knitted at a large gauge, involves very few stitches and allows you to get creative. It’s presented as a full-garment chart rather than a written description of a process, so all you need to do is work each row as indicated, or adapt it however you like! Add stripes, colorwork or a stitch pattern; play with the armhole and neck shaping; think about a split hem or exposed seams. Whatever you dream up—

Easy Knit Vest Free Top Crochet Pattern

A good crochet tank top model has a fairly simple design, but it also includes a special detail. This is what makes it more than a simple tee. The detail in this pattern is the use of extreme drop stitching. He worked in rows above and below the tank in a contrasting color. This pop of color really stands out and makes this an original design. Other than that, it is a very simple crochet pattern that is worked in rounds to create a seamless athlete. What makes this crochet pattern especially special is that it was designed as a mom and me crochet pattern. The pattern is written for twelve sizes ranging from 2T for toddlers to 3X for women. These crochet tank tops patterns only use basic crochet stitches and some simple styling, but you get an elegant garment for all ages.

A cute easy to knit tank top, knitted with a bulky yarn, making this a quick and comfortable design.
Currently available in one size: medium.
Flat top measures approximately 37cm wide and 32cm long (not including straps).
The front and back are woven separately and the side seams are sewn together afterwards, then straps are added.
The tension square is worked in stockinette stitch with the 4.5 mm needles.
I used a very vibrant acrylic blend bulky yarn; however, this top would also look great in more neutral colors.
