Granny Square Crochet Halter Top

June 20, 2017

There’s so much you can create with a simple granny square! It has to be the most versatile pattern around.

 

This halter top is fun, flirty and I love the beachy colors. I used I Love This Cotton! Yarn from Hobby Lobby. This is going to sound cheesy… but I love this yarn! I seriously do. It’s soft, light, and easy to work with.

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.
