Crochet free pattern for Top with V-neck

I found this beautiful pattern on pinterest

28-25 French-sleeve Vest © Pierrot Yarns (Gosyo Co., Ltd.). Translation by Linda Lanz.

The pattern has very brief instructions and schematics explaining the pattern very well.

The pattern is using only two stitches single crochet (sc) and double crochet (dc). It is done in multiples of nine stitches, so you can adjust the size as you like from baby to adult. The original pattern is for 33.5″ bust size.

I am working on a plus size and writting my notes as working on this pattern. I am using baby wool and 3.5mm hook.

Final measurements of the top will be mentioned once I finish the top.

Abbreviations:

  • sc – Single crochet
  • dc – double crochet
  • sk – skip
  • ch – chain

Special stitch:

Shell – dc,ch1,dc,ch1,dc,ch1,dc

1. Foundation chain 2. shell stitch 3. after row 2

Pattern:

Start with foundation Ch 64 (multiple of 9 + 1)

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, {ch2, sk 3 sts, (dc,ch1,dc) all in next st, ch1, (dc,ch1,dc) all in next st, ch2, sk 3 sts, sc in next st} repeat all the way till end of the foundation chains. You should end on sc in last st.

Row 2: Ch5 (replaces 1dc, ch2) and turn, {(dc,ch1,dc,ch1,dc,ch1,dc) all in 2nd ch1 space of the previous row, ch2, dc in sc stitch of previous row, ch2} repeat till end of the row, you will end by dc in the last sc of the previous row.

Row 3: Ch5 (replaces 1dc, ch2) and turn, {(dc,ch1,dc,ch1,dc,ch1,dc) all in 2nd ch1 space of the previous row, ch2, dc in sc stitch of previous row, ch2} repeat till end of the row, you will end by dc in the 3rd ch of the ch5 made in previous row.

Row 4-24: Repeat row 3

Finish off.

Make 4 pieces with above instructions. It will be right front, left front, right back and left back pieces.

Join the foundation chains of the 2 pieces with a sc or slip stitch. It will be the right and left shoulders. (Original pattern has the diagram if this is not clear)

Attach the armhole and the neck (v neck) and now starting with the bodice of the top.

Join yarn at any of the armhole dc, ch3 (replaces 1dc), {ch 2, shell in 2nd ch1 space, ch2, dc in dc stitch} this is same as we did in row 3 just that here we have to attach all four pieces and make a round. Once you reach back to the starting ch3, slip stitch to the top ch to join and thus complete the frist round of the bodice.

So total 28 dc and 28 shells in the round. Repeat from ** to ** until you reach the desired length for the top.

This is how it looks after joining the 4 parts and working few rows of the bodice

Edging:
You can do edging to the neck and the bottom of the top of your choice or as given in original pattern.

Wasn’t that easy and quick!
