How to size my crochet top pattern?

My designs are not graded for all sizes, the samples I make are usually size M/L women. I know each one of us has a different body so I encourage you to measure, gauge and calculate to fit your size.

With that being said my top designs are often two rectangles joined so it is very easy to work them bigger or smaller according to the multiples of the stitch combination

Here is a standard women’s sizes chart for your convenience

Lay your two identical rectangles side by side- right side up – fold each one in half facing you.

Now you should have a v-neck and back shape.

Measure from shoulders to center how open you wish the top to be on your chest and mark it as well as the back.

Measure 17 cm on the sides for armholes and mark using stitch markers.

Sew all parts together!


Secure yarn, weave in ends, and cut yarn
