The construction of this simple crochet top

This crochet top pattern is designed to be customizable for your perfect fit! It involves creating two identical panels. Each panel is unique because you work it in two stages.

  • First, you’ll crochet rows from the bottom up until you reach your desired length.
  • Then, with the first stage complete, you’ll rotate the panel and crochet additional rows to achieve your preferred width.

This clever technique allows you to adjust both the length and width of the top to match your measurements, ensuring a comfortable and flattering fit.

We will make two identical panels, each panel will be made in two parts

Part one

Foundation chain: chain 17 +1

Row 1: Starting in the 2nd chain from the hook, work 1sc in each ch to last ch, turn your work (17)

Row 2: ch3 (counts as 1st tr), tr 1 in next st and in every st across to end of row, turn your work (17)

Row 3: ch1 (does not count as st), sc 1 in 1st st from hook, sc 1in next st and in every st across to end of row, turn your work.

Row 4+5: Repeat Row 2+3

Row2 + Row3 are the pattern repeats for the first part of our panel- I made 4 repeats and changed color every 4 repeats.

You can continue with one color

In total you need 36 Row2+Row3 repeats- make sure you end with a sc row.

If you wish to make this Top longer just add rows of the pattern repeat

You can rotate the panel on the side and continue OR Fasten your yarn, weave in ends and cut

Part Two of Panel

Row 1: Lay your work flat  right side up, work 1 sc on each sc st and 2sc on each tr st along the right side

Row 2: ch3 (counts as 1st tr), tr1 in next st and in every st across to end of row, turn your work.

Row 3: ch1 (does not count as st), sc 1 in 1st st from hook, sc 1in next st and in every st across to end of row, turn your work.

Row 4:ch3 (counts as 1st tr), tr1 in next st, *[ch 2, skip 2 st,  tr 1 in next st, tr 1 in next st]*, repeat from * to * to end of row- try to end with 2 tr, if you have only one space skip only 1 st at the last repeat.

Row 5: ch1 (does not count as st), sc 1 in 1st st from hook, sc 1in next st and in every st across to end of row, turn your work. Make sure to sc in each ch and st from the previous row. Count your stitches to make sure you have the same amount.

Repeat Row 4+ 5 two more times for a total of three times


Sew two panels together on both sides from the bottom leaving space for an arm hole, and join at the center leaving a V-neck as deep as you wish.

You can leave the sides open to form a Poncho.

You can add fringes or tassels at the bottom of the top for more detail

Cut your yarn and weave in the ends.
