What an adorable crop top. With the color used here, it would go along with almost anything in the wardrobe this summer. With the open weave it can be easily worn at the beach or in the office over a modest shell. What a smart way to extend you wardrobe.

I love the color of this textures crochet top. I have like a zillion items in my closet right now that this would accentuate. This could be easily worn over something now during the warm months but could easily stretch into fall over a mock turtle neck when the weather cools off. This is a great addition to any wardrobe.

I wonder why this super fun topper sweater is not offered in any other size besides the S-M size? I think there is a specific way to translate a pattern into more sizes, but I do not know where to get this info. I think the designer should have provided those instructions for us, as not every woman is a size small to medium. Very cute, though, and looks similar to an overly piece that I created myself! Made one for a friend, too. I used Mandala by Lion Brand.

I cannot figure out how to make the body of the front piece. the pattern reads easily for Fdc and DC2Tog, but after starting it and completing the sleeves for each side, it just does not make sense to me... any assistance?

This Textures Crochet Top Pattern is great to wear over a top whose length goes down until the hip area. This top pattern can be crocheted using solid colors or other variegated yarns which will look great over a top that will complement the colors used. The stitch used here is airy enough making the blouse not too warm when worn over another top. This is perfect for late spring and summer months.

Very colorful tunic top. Love the way this variegated yarn looks. Its light weight so it would be a nice accessory to have this time of the year when it is warmer in the day and cooler in the night. Could come in handy if you are out all day and into the evening when the air starts to chill a bit.

pattern w/ sizes http//cre8tioncrochet.com/2015/08/free-crochet-top == -pattern/

not what I call and easy pattern, and there are women larger than a medium The pattern should have options.

HOW ABOUT A SIZE LARGER LIKE M-L ? PLEASE

how many foundation double crochet do I need to make it 1X??? Please answer, I cant wait to start

I LOVE this pattern and think it would look great worn over something in colder weather too, but, alas, I, too need a larger size. PLEASE!

I too love this pattern but am size 16 UK so need larger size. Hope you can help, have been practicing the foundation row! Love the colours of the wool but don't seem to be able to find Textures in the UK.

Really need a pattern textures top in 2X. Can you help?

should work for my granddaughters, but not "adult"... how to make 3x or lg for daughter?

How many chain stitches to start? And we need larger sizes!

It's 56 fdc, for the back and the front. She didn't write the number of stitches at the start of the row but at the end, as it's customary.

this is beautiful but how do you make it large/xlarge?
