Crochet Scalloped Top
Crochet a super cute Crochet Scalloped Top that has peek-a-boo shoulder openings at the top to provide design interest.
This pattern is just two panels made in the shape of a “T” as you can see in the pictures below that are sewn together to form this casual crochet top.
Initially, the pattern looks intimidating but when you break it down in steps, you realize it’s pretty straight forward. There is just a repeat line all the way through which makes it super easy to remember. The video tutorial presentation below will show you the steps and what to look for. The homemade diagrams I made will help illustrate the points in the pattern where it’s just words to explain what to do.
For myself, I got hung up on the additional chains once starting the sleeve portion. Eventually, it just clicked on what they wanted me to do. The tutorial explains that as well.
If you prefer not to have your shoulders doing a peek-a-boo, simply sew the seam across top shut. The choice is up to you.
I was able to finish my version in less than 5 hours without consideration of filming breaks to show my steps. I was so surprised by how fast it was.
The project I did in blue was using the Caron Simply Soft Ombres. The Colour is called Saturday Blue Jeans. Keep in mind that the Ombre line has less yardage than regular simply soft colours. So you want to make sure you check the yardage if you are substituting. In my example, it claimed I needed 3 balls of Caron Simply Soft. I did substitute and I did get away with 3 balls of Ombres. Larger sizes may not work out like that. Just be aware.

How complicated would it be to make the sleeves a little longer, like to the elbow? I prefer my short sleeves longer 😉
I’m not really sure as I haven’t done it. I would think you could go around the existing hole and just create more rounds to bring it down.
Is there a written pattern instead of photos?
Yes, our website has the blue buttons that state Pattern. You click that and it will direct you to where the pattern lives to download it. All of our website articles have the blue button for future reference.
Would you happen to have a written pattern for this scalloped top? I work easier when I read than following a video. Thanking you in advance for your help. If you do, would you please send it to the email listed for me. YUVM, Brenda

Hi! I’m doing this top, in the youtube video the link to the pattern is broken.!! Thanks.
There are 2 video’s for this pattern, one it does work, the other it doesn’t. I have also added the blue pattern button here that will take you to where you can get the pattern. Thank you very much for bringing this one to our attention we truly appreciate it.
I am so looking forward to making this for summer but I am not seeing what weight the yarn is. Can you please advise?
Looks like you may have missed it on the written pattern. It’s #4 weight.
Is it possible to make this wider on the bottom and then have it gradually narrow towards the bust area for those that have wider hips? A 2xl is always a little baggy on the top for me but fits better around my hip area.
Maybe drop down a size in crochet hook that would make it more narrow.
I have tried the set up row 3times now and it never seems to come out even on the end. Argh!! Imalways end up with the 4 dc’s in the same chain at the end rather than the 2 dc’s together. I have been super careful about counting chains so I am wondering if the numbers are off. Anyone else have this experience?
Love all your tutorials! Great job! Thank you for your dedication to The Crochet Crowd. ♡
I need a size between medium and large, would it look strange if I made one side small and the other large, probably make the front larger. Do you think it would show much, would only be a difference of 7 stitches on each side
I’m trying to imagine that and am concerned about the sleeves. I think you would be better off sticking with either a medium and increasing your hook size or large and decreasing the hook size. What I learned about these types of tops is measure your widest area, divide it in half. These is the width of the 2 halves with maybe a half to one inch extra.
Can’t wait to start mine. Living in the UK we don’t see Caron yarn, so I have just ordered some online.
Looking forward to using it. Many thanks for another fantastic tutorial . Jen x
You were bang on as always Mikey ! I have made so many beautiful things following you.
Love it. I’m going to try it. One question: can I block using the steam from my iron? I do not own a steamer…yet!
If you do, be very careful not to touch the yarn or if using acrylic, it will melt.
Love this pattern, where do I find the full written pattern?
Oops! Never mind, found it! LOL
