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 the warmer temperatures, so they make light and comfortable garments.

However, there are good quality acrylic yarns out there that are suitable for tops as well. But 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
  • Crochet hook
  • 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.

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 that the pattern calls for. Then, go check online if you can order that yarn easily. If not, try to look for a substitution, but 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 that calls for 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, and half double crochet, or a combination of those, will be perfect.
  • Avoid patterns with a complicated construction. The ones that are made with multiple separate sections, and call for a lot of hand sewing, could get discouraging easily.
  • And finally, and maybe the most important, crochet a gauge swatch. Good garment patterns will always offer you a pattern for a swatch. Please don’t skip this sept.

Final thoughts

There you have the list of crochet top free patterns. I hope I didn’t make it too hard for you to decide, with so many beautiful options. In case you haven’t decided yet, don’t forget to pin it to your Pinterest boards so you can make them later. 

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