Netted Crop Top

Netted Crop Top 





















Materials needed:

-medium 4 yarn ( I used Caron Simply Soft in the color white )



-5 mm hook

-stitch markers


-scissors

-measuring tape ( optional )


  

stitch pattern multiple : 



even number + 3





                                  I only made one size XS - S ( pattern is easily customizable )




Notes:
-CH CHAIN
-DC DOUBLE CROCHET
-ST STITCH
-SP SPACE
-SK SKIP -INC = increase

-CH3 counts as a st

-sl st in 3rd CH of CH3 at the end of every row







-WE ARE MAKING A -FRONT,BACK 

      -WORKED IN ROWS
                 
-SEWING IT TOGETHER DOWN THE SIDES
                 
-SLEEVES WORKED IN ROUNDS 


-to increase DC CH2 DC in same st ( CH2 counts as 2 st increase )

                   ( stitches shown below )




                      

                        Actual pattern stitches

             CH3, sk 1 st, vst in next st, *CH 4 sk 4, 
             
             vst in next st * REP from * to *  until last vstskip next      


             st, DC on top of CH3 from previous row.




Swatch Gauge of the stitch pattern I am using
 I highly encourage you to make one and measure it
 yourself to make this top in any size 

1.To make the gauge swatch CH 15 TO START
2. DC across 15 sts, CH3, turn
3. sk st, *vst in next, ch4 sk4 sts, vst in next st** ( rep from * to ** for 5 rows that will give you a 4" swatch



I haven't had pattern testers 
test this so proceed at your own risk
THIS IS MAINLY A GUIDELINE for you to create
your own netted top, the numbers that I have provided may or may not be accurate, use your own swatch to figure out the correct number of chains for your foundation row.


part 1 BACK

Pattern:

foundation row: XS-S CH 54 + 3 [ M CH 67 ] [ L CH 75 ] [ XL CH 82 ] [ 2XL CH 90 ] + 3



ROW 1:

DC into the 4th CH from the hook, and all the way to the end of the row




 ROWS 2-6: for larger sizes add more rows 

sk 1 st, vst in next st, *CH 4 sk 4, vst in next st* REP from * to *  until 1 ST + CH3is left, SK last ST, DC on top of the 3rd CH of the CH3

REP for 5 more rows 




DC in the CH3 at the very end of the row
                                                   ROW 2 vst in between previous vst



ROWS 7-8: for larger sizes do more rows

CH3 , vst pattern across 4 vat's 

     ( ch4 sk4 vet in next st 4x )





INC in the next 3 vst patterns 

{ CH4 SK4, DC CH2 DC ( VST INC ) across 3 vst's } 


finishing the row...

CH4 SK4, vst pattern across last 4 vst's


     ( ch4 sk4 vst in next st 4x )

* REP INC ROW for row 8



ROWS 12-20: FOR LARGER SIZES ADD MORE ROWS

CH3, vst in-between next vst, *CH 4 sk 4, vst in next vst * REP from * to *  until  last vst, DC on top of 3rd CH of the CH3

row 20 highlighted 



PART 2 FRONT

REPEAT part 1 up to ROW 14: or where ever you stopped for your size



ROW 15: ( creating shoulder area ) FOR LARGER SIZES ADD MORE ROWS AND WIDTH 

CH3 , vst pattern across 3-4 vst's for 5 - 6 ROWS ( on both sides of your work )



                       this is the front part of our crop top

Part 3


take a measuring tape and measure from the top of your work 6 1/2   ( OR HOWEVER MANY INCHES YOUR ARMHOLE IS )inches down for armhole spacing, place a stitch marker in the correct ST to be marked




place the right sides of your work facing each other before slip stitching

slip stitch up the sides starting at the bottom DC foundation row, leaving 6 1/2 " space open for your armhole


* DO BOTH SIDES *

           DO NOT CUT YARN AFTER SLIP STITCHING UP THE SIDE



PART 4 SLEEVES FOR LARGER SIZES ADD MORE STS AND ROWS

this part is tricky because there isn't a designated st area for us to count properly, so I suggest that you use your creativity to determine how far apart/ how many vsts you need to fit around your arm.

now we are going to make the sleeves , since I never cut the yarn after slip stitching up the sides my yarn is ready to go

ROW 1-30:

CH3, vst in the next available st , * CH4 SK4, vst in next st * rep from * to * across 6-8 vsts, sl st into the CH3 at the beginning of the row

REPEAT this for a total of 30 ROWS 

REPEAT ON THE OTHER SLEEVE

I ALSO ADDED A ROW OF SINGLE CROCHET EDGING AROUND THE WRIST AREA
and around the neck hole area as well just didn't show it because it's optional.

        this is after about 5 rows just to show you how it should be looking  as you continue the rounds.



AFTER YOU WEAVE IN ALL YOUR ENDS, TURN YOUR WORK RIGHT SIDES OUT AND 

        WE ARE FINISHED!
