Make a versatile sleeveless summer top with this crochet pattern.
This top features a mesh body, with a honeycomb style side, and moss stitch hem.

The pattern provides full instructions for sizes Small up to 3XL plus sizes, using an easy to follow colour code, and includes schematics.

Written in US terms with a conversion chart included for UK terms. Photographs have been used throughout to help with clear instructions. A printer friendly version will also be included.

The top provides a little extra coverage while wearing tank tops or camisoles, perfect for skimming over any jiggly bits!

You can wear the top multiple ways for different styles. You could wear the open side on the front or back, keep the edges flat or fold over for a little collar, or add a button toggle to adjust the opening!

For this summer top, I recommend using a cooler cotton or cotton mix DK weight yarn, but you can use other DK yarn types.
I have used Drops Cotton Light yarn which is a 50/50 cotton and polyester mix DK weight yarn.
