Crochet summer tops are now my facourite crochet projects to make as they work up so fast and look just beautiful. This Crochet Berry Summer Top was lingering in my head as most patterns do before they make their way to my crochet hook.
The free crochet pattern is accompanied by a video tutorial for the visual learners, be sure to subscribe. For the video tutorial , scroll down.
Normally, I am really a huge stripe person (colour block is my favourite!) but lately I’ve been in love with the solid colour crochet projects. I can imagine wearing this top with a large straw hat and flowy skirt while strolling along a beach, this top makes for that perfect occasion.

Lay both pannels on top of each other, place the stitch markers where you want the crochet summer top neck opening to reach and the same for the arm holes. see picture below for guidance.

After you have closed the sides, work 2 single crochet rows using a 6.00 crochet hook around the arm opening, do this for both sides, and weave in the ends.
