This Ruffle Top Crochet Pattern is a fitted, short top with cute ruffled sleeves. It’s a great top for spring! It’s not too heavy and with the 3/4 sleeve it gives a bit of warmth without being too hot.

Ruffle Top Crochet Pattern

I am all about the ruffles lately! (I already have another top (or two) planned with ruffles). They’re so fun and girly and surprisingly easy to create! Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be wanting to add ruffles to all the things!

This top is designed to show a little bit of tummy, but rows could easily be added to make it longer. Or take them out if you want more tummy showing, too!
