Crochet Mesh Top

I’m really getting into making crochet tops at the moment. I’ll soon have one for each day of the week and will be well on my way to being able to take part in Make It May fully next year.

To top it all off, and this is actually quite a big deal, The Mr has even commented that “they actually look alright!” Previously, the thought of me making and wearing crochet clothes would have caused a screwed up, disapproving look to appear on his face.

Here’s the start of one of the tops I made last week (yes, I made more than one!)

The yarn is a beautiful silk/wool mix from John Arbon Textiles and it is just divine.

This crochet mesh top is made from a simple mesh pattern with 4 rows of double crochet after every six rows of mesh.

As I’m such an impatient crocheter there isn’t any shape definition to the top, other than a little shaping around the neckline. It’s basically two rectangles stitched together at the shoulders and sides to create very simple top. A really quick make to satisfy my “I want to get this made now” attitude – I made it over two evenings.

I’m going to work on the pattern a little to either give a little definition to the top part in order to make it more vest like or to add little sleeves to give it more shape. But for now, I’m over the moon with this one.

What do you think? Would you be interested in me writing up the pattern?

      Thanks so much for your lovely comment. It is a lovely summer top and I’m really pleased with it. I wore it all day yesterday with a long sleeved top underneath as it was a bit chilly here and it looked great.

        I had wondered about the long sleeved top under it. It’s been chilly here also. I would love to have the pattern if you write it up.
