A crochet summer top makes the perfect crochet project for the summer weathers. The best part is, you will be walking around knowing that nobody else will look like you, or at least until the site get’s bigger.

crochet summer top free patterns have become my new fave. Mostly because they are one day projects for me and they are done before you know it unlike the crochet sweater patterns or the crochet cardigan patterns.

Design Inspiration

I recently made a friend who also loves to crochet and she had mentioned she would love to see me crochet something with some sleeves, so i thought i would give this crochet summer top a go. 

When you have made the crochet summer top, be sure to  share the photo in our FaceBook group, tag us on Instagram and follow us on Pinterest.


The yarn used for this crochet summer top was a DK weight yarn which you can find HERE.

I used the colour Chartreuse, but feel free to use whatever colour you may like. 

This DK weight yarn will still look fresh wash after wash and you will love using it for many other crochet projects to come.

You should have ended at the top of your work, now we are going to work the other shoulder portion of the crochet summer top,

Ch 8(10,12,14,16,18,20),

sc in the back bump of the second ch from the hook and sc all the way down. 

To complete the shoulder portion, work 7(11,15,19,23,27,31) rows and then ch 1 and cut. 

For the back portion of the crochet summer top, work the exact number of rows minus the neck opening. 

SO you will work one large rectangle. 


Before working on the sleeves, we will close the top by laying the front panel on top of the back panel, sew the shoulder closed and the sides leaving the amount of ch for the arm holes depending on how wide you want your arms to be.

 Be sure to leave even number stitches for the arm hole, and that the number is the same for both sides.

For the small size, I left 20 stitches from either side making it 40 in total. For other sizes, it will be depending on your liking.

Connect your yarn on the under arm section of the sleeve, you should have ended on a sc row, so we will start with a dc row.

You will work the sleeve as we have been working the body pattern only that we will slst into the first st to connect the row, and be sure to use the st you slst into as the first st of the row. 

Rep this for the other sleeve, weave in the ends and cut.

Use the 4.0mm crochet hook to place a row or 2 of sc around the neck opening to clean it up.

And your crochet summer top is all done!
