I love the look of this top, but I don't think it would drape very well with my hips. So, I am going to make my 12 year old daughter one in her favorite colors. To those of you having issues with gauge are you using the same yarn as suggested? Patons grace says dk but it is lightermore like sport and because it is cotton it can drape differently. And lastly, sometimes it is just in the way a person crochets., so gauge can vary drastically sometimes.

I have been wanting to make myself some summer tops, but have had trouble finding the time to make them. This pattern is simple and looks like it will be quick to make. I like that it is in DK instead of worsted. Most of the quick tops I have been finding were worsted, which in my opinion is too heavy for summer..

I appreciate this! A beginner pattern for a top! How else are we supposed to get practice?! The colors are so pretty, too. It looks great on a skinny minnie like the model, but a busty gal may not benefit from this cut. The only saving grace is the strategically placed colorblocking to detract the eye from the larger body part. I like this in a black and gray, too.Thanks for the easy pattern!

I have to admit that I had to Google Pattens Grace yarn to see what it was made of because I have never heard of it before. I found out that it is available in a lot of color choices and that it is a cotton yarn. Since this is a top for the Summer months then cotton is definitely the right choice for that. Looks like a very simple top to make and would work for all age groups.

This is another project with overwhelming response. Seems like so many lady crocheters like this blouse. I guess it helped that the pattern i found just right in front of the page. Thanks.

Thank you to those who said something about having a gauge problem , I was thinking about making this for myself and as a newer crocheter it is nice to get tips from other people about what works best and that it is ok if you have to change things up from the pattern. Also thank you for the wonderful tip about looking for the Sc abbreviation to check the stitch language.

So glad to hear others had similar gauge problems. I am using a G and at 8 rows/15 dc = 4 in. My top will be a bit baggy but not as bad as with the h.

I, too, had to adjust my hook (I'm using a size F and still can't quite duplicate the gauge) and am quite confused about the directions for the sleeves and neck. I'm usually quite good at figuring out but ...Was hoping to get some help here.

Are you sure the size H hook is the right size? I tried it and the back half went all the way around me. I went down to the size E hook and it's still a few inches too big, but I like them that way. Is there a difference in the size you said to use and U.S. sizes? And is the actual stitch a U.S. double crochet?

Hi, I find the easiest way of determining which country the stitch language is in, is to look for "single crochet". Single crochet does not exist in UK crochet language, so if anywhere it quotes this, "sc" it is in US language. So then we know that "double crochet" is our "treble crochet". From their guide above, they quote "sc" so we know it is in US language. Hope that helps -)

I'm not quite understanding the crochet assembly of this pattern. Are the sleeve directions just for the back? And the neck directions, are they just for the front? If I am making the neck in two pieces, right and left, where are the joined together? This isn't a v-neck, so they have to have a seam, since they are worked separately. I would think this would be easier to make starting at the bottom back, work the the sleeve back, then back neck, then front neck, front sleeves, and finally front bottom. Then sew the side seams.

i really like the Crochet Summer Colorblock Top pattern but am unsure whether it is written in US or UK stitch names Please advice Trish
