A simple, yet classy tee style top, Eliza is written with all types of crocheter in mind. If you’re yet to try a garment, this is perfect to boost your confidence and try something new, as its super easy to make, and even easier to adapt to all sizes.

Sizing up or down is as simple as adjusting your neckline, and a pretty lace detail compliments the rounded shape. You’ll need to know how to do a double treble for this bit, but don’t let that put you off, as you can find a great tutorial here

To make Eliza, you will need approx 700m of 4 ply yarn for up to a UK size 10. Allow 800m for a size 14 and 100m for a size 16-18. You will require more yarn if you are a larger dress size, or if you wish to extend the length of the top, or sleeves.

I also tested the pattern using Truly Hooked yak nylon sock.
