  • 5 balls of 100% cotton yarn (I used Phildar Phil Coton 3, color craie)
  • crochet needle 4
  • crochet neelde 3
  • siccor
  • 2 stitch markers
  • little button
  • needle and yarn for the button

What stitches do you need to know?

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet

The body

We crochet this top with this stitch, the distel stitch:

For a medium size ch 133 with needle 4. Close with a sl st. Measure around your breast to see if this size fits. Chain more or less to get the right size. Make sure it’s multiple by 7.

Row 1: ch 2, crochet hdc.
Row 2 – 27: Crochet the distel stitch. Mind this: you crochet around, so make sure you repeat the repeating pattern, so you don’t have 4 dc next to each other at the end of the row.

My top is now from my belly button to my armpits. If you’re not there yet, repeat the distel stitch a couple of rows more. This doesn’t create problems for the rest of the pattern. If you want the top to be longer, from your hips, repeat the distel stitch for just a few more rows, untill you’ve reached your desired length.

Front part

End each row with a ch 3, then turn your work.

Row 28: Place your work flat on the table. Take 2 stitch markers and place them on the outsides. Crochet the distel stitch from the first marker untill the other marker. End with 1 dc between last 2 dc.
Row 29: Crochet 3 dc in stead of 5 dc between the first 2 dc. Continue with the distel stitch. Crochet 3 dc between last 2 dc. Crochet a dc in de 3th ch of the last row.
Row 30: Crochet 1 dc between the first and 2nd dc of the 3 dc. Continue with the distel stitch. End with a dc between the 2nd and 3th dc. Crochet a dc on the 3th ch of the last row.
Row 31: Skip 2 stitches. Crochet 2 dc on the 5 dc of the last row. Continue with the distel stitch. End with 2 dc on the 5 dc of the last row. Crochet another dc on the 3th ch of the last row.
Row 32 – 34: Repeat row 29 – 31.
Row 35: Repeat row 29.
Row 36: Repeat row 30.

The front part is done. Now we are going to split this in two, so we create an opening for the neck.

Row 37: Take the shell in the center of row 36. Place two markers next to the shell, between the 2 dc. Repeat row 29 of the front part, but stop if you reach the first marker. Crochet 1 dc between the 2 dc.

Repeat row 36 – 46 on the other side of the back part, only row 45 goes like this: Start with ch 5 (so you have ch 8 in total). Crochet in 5th from hook a sc. Crochet 2 dc betweend 2nd and 3th dc. Continue with the distel stitch. End like row 33.

Sew the button on row 45. Sew the back parts to the front parts.

Crochet sc around the neck.

Lace ending bottom

On the bottom of the top we finish it with a lace ending. You need two crochet needles for this stitch. The first row crochet with neelde 4, the last row take needle 3. Crochet like this: 

Lace ending top 

Attach your yarn in the middle of your armpit and the top of your shoulder. Ch 1, crochet sc around. End with a sl st. ch 1, turn. Crochet the same lace ending you’ve used on the bottom of this top, but this time, stop after 5 times this pattern. Then turn your work and crochet the last row of the pattern. Repeat this on the other side of your top.

That’s it. This is what it looks like:
