Look like $1,490 for way less with this sleeveless crochet top inspired by the 2015 Resort collection from Prada’s diffusion line, Miu Miu.

This pattern is written for one size (US women’s dress size 6/8), but the fit can easily be customized. There are notes throughout the pattern tipping you off to modifications you can make to get your top smaller or larger. Note that the intended fit is definitely snug!

The vest is worked flat in two identically shaped pieces, then partially assembled before adding a waistband which is worked in joined rounds directly onto the body. The pattern includes a schematic as well as a chart for the first 5 rows of the granny square motif that makes up much of the front.

The yarns used in the sample are as follows:

  • Tahki Yarns Sedona in Black - 290 yards
  • Tahki Yarns Sedona in New Gold - 135 yards
  • Tahki Yarns Tara Tweed in Thistle (it’s the purple) - 25 yards
