As the days turn warmer and the sun smiles benevolently on the Earth again, every woman’s thoughts turn to her summer wardrobe. Unless you want to wear the identikit fashions that chain stores sell, you will pay dearly for your summer wardrobe. Discarding winter woolies for summer tops need not cost a fortune when you can crochet and will cost you even less if your pattern comes free. Fortunately, there are many free patterns for women’s camisoles, halter and sleeveless tops on the internet.

Crocheting your top in one of the many cotton or linen yarns now available will make it airy and comfortable for summer wear. However, if you are substituting for another yarn, do make sure that your tension/gauge is commensurate with that required by the pattern. Tension or gauge squares are rather boring but they do save heartache.

The internet’s large free crochet pattern directories save crocheters time by grouping free pattern links together in one place. The most easily navigable directory is Crochet Pattern Central (CPC), which has links to many free crochet top patterns. If you want maximum sun exposure, the Backless Sun Top is for you. The Butterfly summer Tank top is a more modest option. The Melissa Twin set might prove a valuable addition to any summer wardrobe. The Ribbon Halter top provides summer colour. The Nautical Top engenders a holiday (vacation) mood and importantly fits from 32” to 42” bust range. CPC has listed plus size patterns, but do follow the other links as some other patterns also go up to plus sizes.

Yarn company websites offer free crochet patterns. On the Lion Brand site, you will find the versatile Light and Lively Tank, which would make a very useful top to wear to the beach, for shopping or for an evening out. The Airy Lace Shell top could make an elegant garment for summer evenings. Red Heart yarns offer the colourful Summer Striped Top to put you into the vacation/holiday mood. The Flirtation Vest is a pretty cover up over a tee shirt. The Trippy Tunic would make a great cover up over a brief top or as a beach cover-up. At Patons Yarns, the Grace Daisy Mesh vest would cover a strappy top or, lined with thin cotton material, would make a great summer top. There are also several other tops.

Crochet designers, bloggers and other crochet pages also offer free crochet patterns. Antique Crochet Patterns offer two different crochet blouses as well as the very pretty and elegant Lace Evening Blouse. The pretty Summery Camisole at Canadian Living would be a very useful summer item. Free Crochet Pattern Blog has several links to free vest crochet patterns. The Garn Studio webpage helpfully directs readers to free patterns in several languages, including both British and American English and crochet terminology. There are several beautiful crochet patterns for camisoles, halter neck top vests and sleeveless tops at Garn including the Mussel-shaped Border top and the spaghetti strap top.
