The crochet Wild Tulips Top is an easy, modern top that’s flattering on anyone and if you have flabby arms this top is perfect for you!
The Wild Tulips top is perfect for a summer casual day to wear it with your favorite pair of jeans or shorts. If you think the lace is to much for you, you can wear it with a basic top under and you’ll still look beautiful.
For my crochet Wild Tulips top I’ve used 300 g (6 x 50 g) cotton&acrylic blend yarn and a 3,5 mm hook.
The pattern only uses basic stitches: ch, sc and dc and is very easy to crochet.
The final dimensions of the Wild Tulips top are: 45 cm width and 48 long (including the shoulders).
For this project I’ve used this yarn:
This yarn is made of 60% cotton and 40% acrylic. This blend makes it a durable yarn and that is perfect for every day wearing. The color chart includes plenty of gorgeous colors, you just have to decide what color you like and get started. Here you can buy this yarn: http://bit.ly/2M3SvXv

sc= single crochet;
dc= double crochet;
3 dc cl= 3 double crochet cluster;
V st= V stitch- double crochet, 2 chains, double crochet;
The written pattern:
The front and back panel are crocheted the same.
Make multiple of 6 chains plus 1 (for my top I’ve started with 109 chains).
1. Row 1: ch 2, starting with 3rd ch crochet dc until the end of the row.
2. Row 2: ch 1,sc in 1st dc, *ch 2, skip 2 dc of previous row, V st, ch 2 skip 2 ch of previous row, sc*, repeat *-* until the end of the row;
3. Row 3: ch 3, * (3 dc cl, ch 2, 3 dc cl, 2 ch, 3 dc cl) in ch 2 of V st, ch 1*, repeat *-* until the last V st of the previous row, 1 dc in sc of previous row;
4. Row 4: ch 3, dc, *ch 1, dc in 2 ch of the previous row, ch 1, dc in next 2 ch of previous row, ch 1, dc in ch 1 of previous row”, repeat *-*;
5. Row 5: ch 2, starting with the ch of the previous row crochet “dc” in every ch and dc of the previous row until the end of the row.
Repeat the pattern from row 2 until you reach the desire length. For my top I’ve repeated the pattern 13 times.
The shoulders are very simple to do, just 2 rows for each one:
Row 1: ch 2, 24 dc;
Row 2: ch 1, 24 sc.
Crochet the second piece exactly the same.
Sew together the front and back panel leaving a space for the sleeves and sew together the shoulders too.
I’ve crocheted the sleeves directly on the top. But you can crochet them separately and sew it on the top.
I’ve started with 61 dc and I’ve repeated the pattern twice. Sew together the sides and the sleeve it’s ready! If you need a wider sleeves just leave a bigger space when you sew together the front and the back and crochet the pattern as wide as you need, just make sure to make multiple of 6 sts plus 1.
