Crochet skill level: Beginner/intermediate

This crochet pattern is completely customizable, from the size/fit to the style. Make it as a bralette or a crop top, with straps that can either criss-cross in the back for a strappy look, or tie behind your neck halter style.

In order to accommodate all shapes & sizes, and celebrate the beauty in all of our unique bodies, this pattern is written with pre-sized instructions for sizes XS-5XL and also includes measure-yourself instructions so you can customize the top to fit you perfectly. The pattern versions are divided into two separate documents that are both included with your purchase!

Not sure which pattern to use? I recommend using the measure-yourself pattern to get the best fit possible. However, the measure-yourself pattern may be slightly more difficult especially if you are unfamiliar with this style of instruction. I recommend using the pre-sized pattern if you prefer to follow along with numbered stitch & row counts.

Note: If you are using the measure-yourself version of the pattern, you are free to use any yarn/hook size.

MATERIALS (for pre-sized pattern):
Crochet hook: 4.5mm
Yarn: Worsted/aran weight cotton yarn
Recommended: Lily Sugar ‘n Cream, 100% cotton, 120 yds/2.5 oz
