Oversized tops and tees are versatile and very easy to wear with great comfort. How about a lacy oversized crocheted top xD
Materials: ( I used )
5mm crochet hook
Light weight/ DK tape yarn: magenta ( 200 gr for the sample )
( Check out at my Yarn shop – free worldwide shipping )
If you don’t crochet, you can buy this top on my Etsy Shop 🙂
Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each round, so just choose your best technique 🙂
This crochet pattern is done by 2 identical front and back parts, seam to join shoulder and body lines.
Special stitch used: 3 dc – V stitch ( 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc into same stitch or space )
This crochet lacy oversized top pattern fits size L ( chest size: 36 to 38 inches ).
Gauge: 5 double crochet stitches approximately 1.5 inches ( with materials indicated )
Top: work in rows ( make 2 for front and back parts )
