Scallop Hem Halter-neck Top (Free Crochet Pattern)

The body of this pattern is almost entirely double crochet, so it works up fast and the length of the top is easy to customize. I used a worsted weight cotton-acrylic blend yarn in my project and since this is a summer top, I would recommend either something of a similar composition or a yarn that is entirely cotton or linen.

Like the Buttercup Top and Meadow Backpack, I designed this as a present for a friend, so the high halter neckline and shell stitch hem on this top are inspired by pieces of clothing in their existing wardrobe.

If you would like this top to be longer, simply add more rounds to the body before the round of the shell stitch at the hem and adjust the amount of yarn accordingly.
