Crochet Mesh Top
This easy to do Crochet Mesh Top is written for sizes XS – 5 XL. The pattern is simple because both the front and back panels are the same pattern. You just have to sew the top of the shoulders and the solid area under the arms to the bottom ribbing. The mesh adjusts for your body shape.
This pattern starts at the bottom starting with the ribbing. You will use a smaller crochet hook to make ribbing so you have that comfort and perfect stretching material you expect in crochet ribbing. Then, once you have only 2.5″ of ribbing complete, you just simple half double crochet for the distance stated on the pattern and then begin the mesh. The mesh takes very little time.
The tutorial below takes you through the pattern in extensive detail, it also shows you the stitch steps and includes assembly. I did my 3/4 of the top in one evening and finishing it in the morning. It depends on the sizing of course for speed.
You can use Patons Metallic Yarn but also Caron Simply Soft Yarn would look lovely too.
