Pattern: Crochet Fringe Crop Top

I was recently requested to write up a pattern for a kids fringe crop top! Even though it’s only 50 degrees out today it’s hot in other parts of the world right?! 🙂 So the fringe crop top was born! I think it’s definitely a crochet pattern staple to have when you have little ones running around. It’s super cute for photo shoots or to just wear outside during the hot summer days. I included 3 different sizes but it is VERY easy to adjust even further if you need to. To make it wider, add more chains to the starting chain. To make it longer or shorter, add or take away rows.

Be sure to follow and tag me on Instagram (@evelynandpeter) with all your fringe crop top makes!

Materials:

  • Worsted (4) weight cotton yarn. 50-80 yards depending on size made. I used Paintbox cotton yarn.
  • 4.00mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle

Sizes: Pattern is written as follows S(M,L). Each top fits a wide range due to the adjustable straps. You can easily adjust your size even further by adding more or less rows to suit your needs.

  • Small: Infant
  • Medium: 12-24 months
  • Large: Toddler

Do not cut yarn. Ch 100(125,150). Tie off. Join yarn to the top corner of the last row made on the other side. Make the second strap- Ch 100(125,150) Tie off. Weave in all ends and add Fringe. You will take the straps you just made and weave them back and fourth “corset style” by inserting the strap in between the end stitches at the end of the rows. View picture below for reference.

My sweet girl braved the chilly October breeze to model for Mama!
