My Favourite Free Crochet Top Patterns for Women

Updated on August 4, 2014

Easy Crocheted Top Patterns for Ladies

Free crochet Patterns for Beautiful Crochet Tops tunics and open work sweaters for ladies. These patterns I am featuring are not not only easy to follow, but will help you to create modern, wearable crocheted tops, cover-ups and tunics. I actually found it quite a task to find modern crochet patterns for tops that I liked, and more importantly would actually wear once I had made them.

I never thought I would enjoy making such a large project, one that I had persumed was way over my skill set, as I was so used to making mostly baby crochet items, but with the help of these easy patterns, I love making these tops and here is my personal favorite collection of free crochet patterns for Crocheted tops.

I will also be adding more patterns as I find them and make them so be sure to check back often.

Whether it is a glamorous evening top or a warm cozy wrap up, beach cover up or tunic style these tops are timeless pieces in your wardrobe.

Crochet Tunics and tops to go over a simple white t-shirt are really making a comeback, and very modern as seen on the catwalks for Fashion Week.

Beautiful Crochet Tops - Buy crochet tops and tunics online

Over the summer I wanted some crochet tops to go over my nest tops, well if you have landed on this page you know how hard it is to track a nice, crochet top down at a reasonable and affordable price! Many are vintage, handmade or straight from the designers, and cost us a fortune!

But luckily for us, there are some really nice ones available on-line and at great prices.

these are a great look to team with under vest top, jeans and sandals or boots depending what time of year, finish look with chunky accessories and belts.

Crochet Lace Tunic Pattern

I always admired the gorgeous crochet tops, I would see woman wearing, and thought how clever and how time consuming it must be to make the intricate lace openwork crochet tops, however I am relieved and pleasantly surprised at some of the patterns I have found online that are simple and very easy to follow. BUT do not shrimp on class or flair in the finished pattern.

For example take this stunning, beautiful Long Sleeved crochet Top tunic, The main tunic part is worked easily in the round, until the chest area, front of tunic and and back are worked separately. the Sleeves are worked up from the cuff. This is a very easy to understand pattern.

Ideal for those who are wanting to further their crochet expertise, and about to attempt their first crochet top.

This crochet top is both simple to make and effortless to wear. Crochet Pattern is available for FREE (no sign ups required) from

      @fifthofanickel: Please NOTE!!!! I just followed the measurements/guidelines for this top. I used V stitch double crochet ch1 double crochet and when I was making the underarm sleeve I joined the sides where I wanted to achieve the wider/bigger sleeves. :) (basically I just used the pattern for the deep v top to achieve the one I am wearing in the picture :) hope this helps :)
