The Peplum Summer Top is an easy crochet summer top for advanced beginners. The shoulder shaping and elegantly rounded v-neck add femininity to this loose-fitting simple peplum top. Crafted after my favorite go-to summer tank, it’s sure to become your favorite too!

The pattern uses single crochet and double crochet stitches, along with a bit of shaping (decreases) for the neck and armholes. This can be a bit more challenging for a true beginner, but my detailed pattern with photos and explanations will guide you through each step.
