THE YARN


For the crochet Natare top you’re going to need cotton yarn if you follow the pattern suggestion, the Cotton DK yarn from Paintbox. It comes in all these beautiful shades & the dress in the pictures is made in pistachio.

This cotton is soft, it works up beautifully & works well for crocheting garments.

 

Don’t want to use cotton? Well, there’s plenty other yarns to choose from. A great way to go would be to try Paintbox Simply DK. The result might change slightly, but this is also a yarn that comes in lots of great shades.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

NOTES: 


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms (more details).
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.

 

  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).
  • The split single stitches needs to be crocheted quite loose to make this an easy top to crochet. Exaggerate how loose you crochet them on the test square to practice.
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge (more details).

 

  • This pattern is written for 9 sizes, where the different sizes is given in parenthesis like this: XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL. If just one number is given, it applies to all sizes. I recommend that you highlight or circle the size you’re making before you begin to make the pattern easier to follow. Size adjustments are added under “Size & Measurements”.
  • At the end of each row, the stitch count is given in parenthesis. It includes starting chains.
  • The split single crochet stitches tends to shift to the left. Because of that it’s recommended to both block the garment after finishing the yoke & after finishing the final garment.

 

SIZE & MEASUREMENTS:


 

SIZE NOTES:

  • This pattern is written to have a standard fit, that means about 5-10 cm ease.
  • Take measurements to find the size that fits the best.

 

SIZE ADJUSTMENTS:

  • Note: Any size adjustments affects yarn usage & you might need more/less yarn than suggested.

YOKE:

    • Starting the yoke: If you want a smaller/bigger opening for the head. Reduce/increase the starting FSC in increments 16 st. Note: This would change the stitch & row count for the yoke.
    • Try on yoke to make sure the yoke is wide enough to drop (slightly) of your shoulder on both sides. The corners will attach/meet under your arms when continuing the top. *This will also adjust the width of the.

 

BODY:

  • For all sizes: Adjust length by adding or reducing rounds at the end.
  • Adjust width by making the yoke smaller or bigger. Alternatively, add more FSC stitches on the first round of the body.

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED: 


You will need to use chains, single crochet (in variations, see below), split single crochet, front loop single crochet, back loop single crochet & foundation single crochet.

 

FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (FSC):

Written description:

Step 1: Ch 2 st.

Step 2: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.

Step 3: Insert hook into prev “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.

Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches. *2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.

 

Tutorial:

SPLIT SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (SSC):

Crocheted with the exact same steps as a normal single crochet, however you’ll insert the hook differently.

 

Written description:

Insert the hook between the legs of the next st, pull up a loop to slightly higher than your hook/previous stitch, you have 2 loops on the hook, yarn over and pull through both loops on hook.

 

LOOSE SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (LSC):

Crocheted with the exact same steps as a normal single crochet, however you’ll crochet the stitch intentionally looser to prepare for a split single crochet (ssc).

 

BACK LOOP SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (BLsc):

Crocheted with the exact same steps as a normal single crochet, however you’ll only insert the hook in the back loop of the stitch.

Tutorial: http://staging-joyofmotioncrochet.kinsta.cloud/how-to-crochet-the-backloop-single-crochet

 

FRONT LOOP SINGLE CROCHET STITCH (FLSC):

Crocheted with the exact same steps as a normal single crochet, however you’ll only insert the hook in the front loop of the stitch.

 

CROCHET TOGETHER 2 SINGLE CROCHET STITCHES (SC2TOG):

Used to decrease stitches.

Written description: Draw up a loop from the next st, draw up a loop from the stitch after that, you have 3 loops on the hook, yo, pull through all loops on the hook.

FINISHING THE YOKE:

Fasten off & cut yarn.

Block yoke before continuing on the body (optional). Do not stretch the yoke, but just straighten the split single crochet stitches.

 

BODY:

PM in each ssc stitch made in corners on the last row of the yoke. These stitches are included in the body stitch count.

Cont after the last row of the yoke. Attach thread to the last stitch on one long side of the yoke, in a marked scc made in the corner.

 

Round 1: Ch 1 (counts as 1st st), FSC 4 st, sk the whole short side of the yoke to make the first armhole (36 (42) 48 (54) 62 (68) 74 (82) 88 st), ssc in a marked ssc made in the next corner, scc in all st on the long side, scc in a marked scc made in the corner, FSC 4 st, sk the whole short side of the yoke to make the second armhole (36 (42) 48 (54) 62 (68) 74 (82) 88 st), ssc in a marked ssc made in the next corner, scc in all the stitches on the long side, sl st in ch from beg of round (= 112 (124) 136 (148) 164 (176) 188 (204) 216 st).

Round 2: Ch 1 (counts as 1st st), sc 1 in the next 4 st, ssc 1 in the next 52 (58) 64 (70) 78 (84) 90 (98) 104 st, sc 1 in the next 4 st, ssc 1 in the next 52 (58) 64 (70) 78 (84) 90 (98) 104 st, sl st in 1st st (= 112 (124) 136 (148) 164 (176) 188 (204) 216 st).

ARMS:

Please not that the instruction for the short sleeves doesn’t have to be made exact. It’s important to try on the garment & adjust how many stitches you need to decrease to make them fit you perfectly.

This could mean that you will only do sc2tog in every other stitch or every third on round 1.

Attach yarn in the 3rd FSC under the arm (one of the middle FSC stitches made).

Round 1: Ch 1, sc2tog in all st around the short side of the yoke, sl st in 1st st (22 (25) 28 (31) 35 (38) 41 (45) 48.

Round 2: Ch 1, sl st 1 in all st until end of round, sl st in 1st st (22 (25) 28 (31) 35 (38) 41 (45) 48.

Fasten off & cut yarn.

 

FINISHING:


Fasten threads & weave in ends.

Block the top to make split single crochet stiches line up.
