A breeze to make, this summery cover-up consists of basic crochet stitches and only a couple of slightly less common techniques (reverse sc and foundation dc, both of which are super easy to learn from YouTube tutorials).

The top is made up of two identical rectangular pieces crocheted in rows back and forth. The size determines the width of each piece (=the circumference of finished top). You decide the length. (Which is why row count is irrelevant to gauge.)

The front and back pieces are crocheted together at the top corners (shoulders) and then sewn together at the sides from arm holes down.

Instructions on how to make this top in sizes other than the ones listed are included in the pattern. American terminology.
