Cold Shoulder Crochet Top Pattern

September 22, 2018

The Cold Shoulder Crochet Top Pattern is such a fun and flirty top! It’s made with DK weight yarn so it’s not too heavy. Perfect for Fall and Spring! This top has the cutest ruffle creating the cold shoulder detail. I love how fun and girly it makes this top! It’s mostly made of double crochets with a few shaping details making it an intermediate level pattern (or an ambitious beginner level!) I used one of my favorite DK acrylic yarns, Paintbox Simply DK. There are so many colors to choose from and it’s a good quality yarn for a great price.

COLD SHOULDER TOP

(make 2)

Ch 61 (69) [75] (leave a long end for sewing)

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from the hook and in each ch across (60 sc, (68 sc) [74 sc])

Row 2 – 3: ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across (60 sc, (68 sc) [74 sc])

Row 4 – 33: ch 2, turn, dc in each stitch across (60 dc, (68 dc) [74 dc])

In the next rows you will start to decrease and shape for the armholes – each row will decrease by 4 stitches

Row 34 – 40: ch 2, turn, dc3tog, dc across to last 3 stitches, dc3tog

Row 41: ch 2, turn, dc in each stitch across (32 dc, (40 dc), [46 dc])

In the next rows you will start to decrease and shape the neckline

Row 42: ch 2, turn, dc in 13 (17) [20] stitches, dc3tog once (this will be the end of the row) (14 dc (18 dc) [21 dc])

Row 43: ch 2, turn, dc3tog, dc in each stitch across (12 dc (16 dc) [19 dc])

Row 44: ch 2, turn, dc across to the last 3 stitches, dc3tog (10 dc, (14 dc), [17 dc])

Row 45 – 51 (55) [59]: ch 2, turn, dc in each stitch across (10 dc, (14 dc), [17 dc])

Fasten off, leave a long end for sewing.

Join yarn to row 42 next to the dc3tog from the first shoulder strap

Row 42: ch 2, dc3tog across the three stitches right next to the dc3tog from other side

dc in remaining stitches across (14 dc (18 dc) [21 dc])

Row 43: ch 2, turn, dc across to the last 3 stitches, dc3tog (12 dc (16 dc) [19 dc])

Row 44: ch 2, turn, dc3tog, dc in each stitch across (10 dc, (14 dc), [17 dc])

Row 45 – 51 (55) [59]: ch 2, turn, dc in each stitch across (10 dc, (14 dc), [17 dc])

Do not fasten off.

Ch 1, sc around the inside of the collar to the middle 2 stitches, sl st2tog across the middle 2 stitches, sc up other side.

Fasten off.

Lay both pieces together. Use a needle and the long end whip stitch the shoulders together. Then whip stitch up each side to the armhole (row 34).

Fasten off, weave in all the ends. Turn right side out.

RUFFLE

Mark where you want your ruffle to be. I tried the top on and marked with a stitch marker. I made my ruffle about row 38

Join yarn at stitch marker. Ch 25. Join to the back with sl st (careful not to twist the ch) Fasten off.

Repeat on the other side but do not fasten off.

Now you will make ruffles across the front of the top. You will work around the entire top, working in joined rounds. 

Row 1: ch 2, 2 dc in each stitch across the front to the other ch, 2 dc in each ch to the other side of the top, 2 dc in each stitch across to the ch, 2 dc in each ch, join to first dc with sl st

Row 2: ch 2, dc in same stitch, 2 dc in next, *dc in next, 2 dc in next* repeat from * to * around, join to first dc with sl st

Row 3 – 5: ch 2, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

Fasten off, weave in your ends.

And you’re done! I hope you love this top!

  1. Hi Breann,
    I love this top! Just finished one side and wondering the best way to add the ruffles to the top. Can I do 2dc around the posts of the stitches rather than just the front of the stitch? will it make a difference to how the ruffles lay? Thank you.
