Triangles & Fringe Crochet Top Pattern

April 4, 2018

This Triangles & Fringe Crochet Top Pattern is made with cotton yarn, and with the fun peek-a-boo sections it makes this perfect for summer!

I used a stitch that creates a fun triangle pattern. What I like best (besides that it’s cute) is that it’s a tall stitch and works up SO FAST! Seriously, you’ll have this summer top finished up in no time.

I might have a slight obsession with fringe! I love adding it to my spring and summer tops! It’s totally optional, this top would still be super cute without the fringe.

I used I Love this Cotton! from Hobby Lobby. It’s a nice and soft cotton yarn, especially for the price. Cotton is ideal for summer projects because it is a much lighter fiber and it’s easy to keep clean.

Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing

You’ll notice the solid rows are wider than the triangle rows.  I blocked my rectangles to correct this a bit, but once it’s sewn and worn (since the solid rows are the bust area) it isn’t noticeable

CONSTRUCTION

Lay both rectangles together, use a stitch marker to mark where you want to sew the shoulders. I sewed about 13 stitches in on both shoulders.

Sew the shoulders closed with a ship stitch (I used the long tail)

Then mark where you want to sew the sides closed. I marked about row 17.

Sew the sides closed with a whip stitch (I used the long tail)

Fasten off, weave in you ends. Turn rightside out

OPTIONAL LAST ROW & FRINGE

Join yarn in the bottom corner

ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in next stitch, ch 1, skip one stitch, *dc in next 2 stitches, ch 1, skip one stitch* repeat from * to * around, join to first ch 3 with sl st (it may not work out perfectly due to sewing and such, it’s ok. Just add an extra dc or skip 2 in the end)

Fasten off, weave in the ends

Then add 5 twelve inch pieces of fringe to each ch 1 space

And you’re finished with your new top!

    1. Thank you! For this pattern you need a starting ch of a multiple of 4 + 2 more. I hope this helps!

      I don’t have any patterns in 2x right now. I just don’t know enough about plus sizes to feel comfortable writing a pattern for it. But if there’s a pattern you want to make, let me know and I’ll help you adjust it 🙂
