Crochet Wild Tulips Top- free pattern

The crochet Wild Tulips Top is an easy and a 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.

You can crochet it with 3/4 sleeves and you’ll have a wonderful top for fall or spring.

With this pattern, I wanted to challenge myself to create something that would work for warm weather but also be flattering and provide a lacy, summery look but in the same time to look cool and versatile.

I think this top would look beautiful in any color. But every time I don’t now what color to choose, I always choose grey, when I crochet a project or when I’m choosing an outfit, grey is my safety color to go, so this grey Wild Tulips top is perfect for my wardrobe. I can wear it with almost everything I have in my closet.

Skill level: Easy.

The pattern only uses basic stitches: ch, sc and dc and is very easy to crochet and it uses a simple construction method and has minimal shaping (you only crochet two squares, sew them together and then crochet the sleeves directly on the body) and that makes it perfect for beginners.

Pattern Instructions for the crochet Wild Tulips top:

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 crochet, 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.

The sleeves:

I’ve crocheted the sleeves directly on the top. But you can crochet them separately and sew it on the top, but it looks better with the sleeves crocheted directly on the body.

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.

Weave in the ends and that it, you have a brand new beautiful top.

    1. Yes, but I’ve used a thin yarn, so depending of the yarn you are using you might need to adjust the number of chains.

  1. I love your wild tulip top. You look tiny in that top and you started with 109 chains. I need to know how many stitches should I start with for my size. I usually use a large to sleep depending on who makes the clothing. What size are you so i can gauge how many stitches I should use.

    1. Hello, the final dimensions of the top are: 45 cm width and 48 long (including the shoulders). I’ve used a thin yarn, if you’re using a thicker yarn you’ll need a smaller number of chains. In 5 inches I have 30 double crochet.

      1. It depends on the yarn you are using. Just crochet a swatch starting with 25 chains and crochet the pattern for 9 rows. Then measure the width of the swatch and calculate how many chains you need for your dimensions (adjust the final number of the chains to be multiple of 6 plus 1).
