Crocheted Halter Top

Just finished this summer halter top to take with me on an upcoming vacation to a beach resort. So happy with the way it turned out! I got the pattern from “Petrakot” on Esty.com. I made a few changes to the pattern:

1. I changed the tie strings and attached them to the back piece, then brought them forward, looping them through the top of the bra, and tied them in a bow behind my neck. Note: I added beads on the end of the ties.

2. I also made this a flat piece instead of in-the-round, and just sewed the back together a little at the top so it opens at the bottom to avoid a tight fit.

3. I preferred a different edge around the bra top. I found this one from another pattern.

I love this top and used every inch of the four 50gr. balls that I had in my stash. Five balls would have been ideal, but I couldn’t find a fifth ball anywhere! I have already started my second halter top, because I need something to do on the airplane ride. The second one is so cute and perfect for the beach!

    I've been knitting & crocheting many years, and it is great to see the rise in popularity. Basically,the loves of my life include: knitting, crocheting, being with my family and giving thanks to God for how He's blessed my life, but not necessarily in that order!
