This is a really pretty top. The directions are very well written and easy to understand. I love the pattern but I may use a cotton yarn. That way I won't worry if it gets soiled or has sweat stains. This is Florida and you can expect both to end up on it.

Yarnspirations comes through again with another great pattern. I love the neck line of this item and this could easily be worn over a cami during the warm months. Now, if you elect to crochet this in a darker shade, this could also go well into the winter months with a thicker shirt underneath.

Doesn't this summer sun crochet top scream summer! The vibrant yellow is ideal for the coming hot summer days. This top is not one of those form fitting items so I know it will be cool to wear even with a little something underneath. Thanks for the free pattern.

The yellow yarn is such a bright and cheerful color and perfect for Spring which will be here very soon now. This pattern requires intermediate skills and is worked with a medium weight yarn. I think I might would go to an even lighter weight yarn and adjust my gauge if needed to make it even lighter.

Aaaawwww! Summertime and the livin' is easy! It will be sooo much easier in this cute and comfy peek a boo sleeve crochet top. This will make my summer dressing a snap! I love the scalloped edged neck and hem lines. The open weave will make it so breezy to wear! With 51 choices of Caron simply soft to choose from that may be the most difficult decision of all. Thanks for the free pattern!

If I make this with a light cotton yarn, I may be able to use it here in central Florida during our so called winter months. I read thru the pattern and it appears very easy. And with three sizes given, I can make a couple for my relatives also. Thank you for sharing this.

Another very refreshing and cool crochet top. This Summer Sun Crochet Top Pattern is perfect for the hot summer months. It can be worn during the day and on to the night for dinner. You may use a cardigan over the blouse when it gets chilly.

This summer sun top is adorable. I love the modern little openings at the shoulders. The open crochet is just enough sexy to make a gal feel very feminine. And the plus side is the top has enough flow to hide our little area we think need cover. This is a top of all ages I know my daughter (20) will love it as much as I do.

At first glance this top is not one that I would actually want to make, but I was on the crochet crowds website and if you look up this pattern they have pictures of samples made by other crocheters in different colors and yarn and they looked quite beautiful. It still is not my top project on my growing mile long list but, I think I will try it at some point.

I just finished this top. I love it. If you go to Youtube, there is a video of instructions. The Crochet Crowd, Scalloped Top

Really, really pretty and so feminine. This "Summer Sun" crochet top seems like something that I have been looking for for some time. I'd like it in white. But the yellow is pretty, too. I am an experienced crocheter with many decades experience but half the time I don't prefer patterns. I usually come up with my own idea and freestyle it. This pattern is easy enough for me to follow. THanks!

I have been looking for summer tees. This one looks quick and easy. I may make several to match my different tank tops. Worsted weight yarn seems heavy for this type of shirt though. Is it easily adjustable for use with lighter yarns? Is there a formula you can share for enlarging the pattern?

Such a cute top. Perfect for the springtime as it looks like a little golden yellow ray of sunshine. Unfortunately, I see a lot of comments about people having issues making this cute top. Does anyone know for sure if the issues have been resolved yet? Dont even want to get started until I know.

Love the look of this top but it seems lots of people have had problems with the pattern. So I sat down and worked up a sample and it turned out fine. Now, hopefully, I will be able to figure out the sleeves. Would like to have it done for my grand daughters graduation.

Favorite type of crochet pattern I prefer to make. Lace and crochet thread are easier for me to work with.

Where can I find instructions for a crochet lettuce front evening jacket

perfect for hot weather

Hi is there any videos how to make this ty

It took me a while to figure out the pattern but now I am at the sleeves and I am confused, the pattern says 'to work one NEW pattern repeat' but no where does it say what the NEW pattern repeat is. I opened the link below to where the pattern is but it is exactly the same as the pattern above. It is frustrating because it is such a pretty top. I prefer a to watch a video.

It is a lovely top -- and I want to make it for my daughter. However, I can't even get row 2 -- it doesn't make sense where the stitches are made in the spaces on row 1. I crocheted the correct number of chains. When I got to the end, there were chains left over -- IF I ended where the instructions said you'd be ending on the first row. How did you get the pattern going?

Hi Vicki, sorry I put this project aside for a while until I could figure out how to do the sleeves, I will have to make up my own pattern as there are no instructions for the 'new pattern repeat' for the sleeves. Let me know if you are still trying to figure out the pattern and I will do my best to help you. I usually start crocheting a pattern and rip out several times before I figure it out.

By saying NEW the designer is saying to start the existing pattern repeat over from the beginning (row 1). Hope this helps everyone!

yarnspirations link is not a correct link

Here is a correct link to the pattern!! It is a Caron Pattern! http// == ochet-scalloped-top.html

Hey Lucy the stitch is not coming out for me either.. they should not be allowed to put patterns out there if they are not willing to help.. I see the first person got answered... poor service

very frustrating.....

Here are the real instructions for the top!!!!! http// == ochet-scalloped-top.html

I am at a loss too. I tried to start this but it isn't coming out right. How many chains to start for size medium? Are we doing the FRONT first? How MANY rows to start? HELP! Thinking I might have to make another top and I promised my daughter this one for her birthday (

Here are the real instructions for the top!!!!! http// == ochet-scalloped-top.html

Is there someone one out that to answer our question. I asked 4 days ago. I'm at a standstill with this pattern

Thank you Cheryl. I too am totally confused on the beginning instructions. I have crocheted for over 60 years and this one makes absolutely no sense. Can someone please help.

Here are the real instructions for the top!!!!! http// == ochet-scalloped-top.html

It looks like these directions might be slightly different from the first set -- I'm going to try this version. Wish me luck!

Starting pattern BACK - making SM ch 74 - Work set-up row-5 (6, 7, 8, 9) what does that mean - work 5 rows of set-up? As it says Row 1 and all following rows. I would assume set-up row (would be worked once)? can you help. Thanks

I like this pattern, and would love to get started on it, but am I missing something? The "measurements" section lists 3 sizes- S, M, and L. But reading thru the pattern, it has adjustments for FIVE sizes. Can anyone clarify?

Yes there are 5 sizes. Not sure why they didn't include the measurements for the XL and XXL but those are the sizes for the last two numbers. Hope this helps!

How is it you were able to get an answer to your question, but the rest of can't?
