This fun Strawberry Halter Top Crochet Pattern is a cute and flirty design that’s perfect for your summer celebrations! The back is completely open. Because of the cotton yarn it would even work as a cute swim suit top.

This halter top is made in one size fits most. The pattern could be adjusted be increasing or decreasing the starting chain. I used one of my favorite stitches for this halter top, the Suzette Stitch. You can find a detailed tutorial for this stitch HERE!
