This is a top made with corner-to-corner crochet stitches. The “tiles” made in c2c crochet reminds me of colourful pixels, and Nintendo video games of my childhood, and summer vacation spent playing these games. So I called it “8-bit”.

It can be worn both ways, either with the buttons on the front, or on the back. Buttons in the front makes it a cardigan, which can be paired with a spaghetti strap summer dress!

The top is made in 4 pieces then sewn together. So you can also sew the v-neck pieces together and place the buttons on the round-neck side.

Size: Bust 36″, armhole depth 7″, neck opening width 8″, total length 17″

Size is easy to adjust as you go with the c2c crochet stitch. There are instructions for adjustment throughout. c2c crochet charts also included.
