Summer top crochet pattern

Top crochet pattern



This elegant openwork design from Camilla Ette Gotfredsen features two main stitch effects, each based around neat clusters of treble stitches. The yarn is made from pure linen and dyed using natural colourants and traditional methods. This top is perfect for pairing with light trousers and a neutral vest top and will make a real statement this summer.

Crochet clever

Some pattern rows have several repeats, which are indicated by asterisks and square brackets. The square brackets are used to show pattern repeats with in a larger, asterisk section, and also to show where you are working multiple times in a particular stitch. We'd suggest reading the full row before you start.
