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!

Do not fasten off
Crochet the crab stitch around the outside border. This is a single crochet stitch but it’s worked in the wrong direction. So instead of inserting hook in the stitch to the left, insert hook in the stitch to the right and work around
Stop on the opposite corner
Fasten off, weave in the ends.
Join green to the top corner where the crab stitch ends
Row 1: ch 1, sc in 21 stitches (this should be the opposite corner where the crab stitch ends) (21 sc)
Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in same stitch, *skip 1 stitch, 5 dc in next, skip 1 stitch, sc in next* repeat from * to * across (25 dc, 6 sc)
Fasten off, weave in the ends
Join red yarn to top corner where the red and green meet, ch 150, fasten off. Repeat for other corner.
Use your yarn needle to thread straps through the back. Weave in your ends.
With black yarn and your yarn needle, sew on the seeds
And you’re finished! I hope you love this fun halter top!
