Summer is officially here and so is crochet crop top designs. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing with you some beginner friendly crop top patterns as well as bags, shorts and other summer essentials.
The Kimmy Top was made with the intent to have another high neck design which I loved so much on the Eve Halter Top shown below. It also includes a choker attached which is back in style and here to stay. The pattern below is for size XL but if you would like to purchase for all sizes, click here
