Thank you so much for checking out my very first crochet pattern! The Cabbage Patch Top features an ultra flattering customizable fit, an adjustable lace up back, an adorable frilly trim and an optional ruched bust detail. I was sure to include pictures, sketches, diagrams and an overload of information so that beginners can take on this quick and easy project with confidence. For advanced or intermediate crocheters, this'll be an absolute breeze!
I did my best to keep this pattern very open-ended, there are no specific size guides to follow or a certain type of yarn you absolutely have to use. As long as you stick to the overall structure of the top and use your own measurements as a reference you'll be just fine! As I walk you through the process I'll be referencing my own size XS sample top as an example, however I'll also include detailed instructions on how to customize your top to fit your own measurements perfectly.
For this project, I used medium weight 4 cotton yarn. I purchased one 150 g skein of each color and had tons left over after I was finished. I used a K (6.5 mm) crochet hook. To complete your top, you will also need a measuring tape, scissors, a yarn needle and stitch markers. The stitches you'll need to know beforehand are: chain stitch, slip stitch, half double crochet and double crochet (US terms).
