Best Yarns for Summer Crochet Tops

Natural fiber yarns, such as cotton and bamboo, in weights fine (#2) to worsted (#4) will work better for summer tops. These yarns are breathable and cool for warmer temperatures and can make light and comfortable garments. Here are a few of my favorite yarns for Summer tops:

However, there are good-quality acrylic yarns out there that are suitable for tops as well. However, it’s important to remember that acrylic tends to get warmer than cotton or bamboo in the heat.

Supplies Needed to Crochet Summer Tops

Here are the supplies and tools to crochet most tops in this list:

  • Lighter weight yarns (more on the yarn above).
  • Crochet hook, Clover Amour Hooks are among my favorites.
  • Stitch markers (not crucial, but helpful)
  • A measuring tape or ruler
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle

Make sure you check the “materials and supplies” section on each pattern in the list of crochet top free patterns below. That way, you won’t miss the exact materials you need.

Most of these top patterns are very popular on Ravelry. Obviously, just by looking at them, you can tell why people love them. One is cuter than the next. Pick your favorite and have fun. But I have also added newer, great patterns that I am sure you will love as much.

Tips for choosing the right crochet top pattern

This list of crochet top free patterns has the perfect projects for you, even if you have never made a top before. But here are some tips for you to choose an easy pattern.

  • First, check the kind of yarn the pattern calls for. Then, check online if you can easily order that yarn. If not, try to look for a substitution with the same weight and fiber. There’s even a website for that—just google “yarn substitution,” and it will pop right up.
  • Next, look for a pattern recommending yarn weight #2 and above. Yarns that are lighter than that will take you much longer to work with, especially if you are a beginner. And that could be frustrating. 
  • Choose a simple pattern with basic stitches. Anything with chains, single crochet, double crochet, half double crochet, or a combination of those will be perfect.
  • Avoid patterns with complicated construction. The ones made with multiple separate sections that require lots of hand sewing could get discouraging easily.
  • Finally, and most importantly, crochet a gauge swatch. Good garment patterns always offer a pattern for a swatch. Please don’t skip this step.

Crops are fun to crochet and make great projects for your first garment. They are great beginner projects because they are small and usually don’t require a lot of sewing.
