Hello again peeps, I’m so happy to be back here with you again for another FREE killer crochet project. This crochet crop top was inspired by my previous 3d flower projects, although this is NOT a 3d flower stitch tutorial.
I made this 3d flower crochet stitch tutorial, which led to this adorable 3D flower skirt. The skirt was so dang cute, I just had to make a matching top! Now, here we are.
This crochet crop top has some really simple little flowers that are sewn into the straps. It’s a really easy, beginner friendly project that can can customized in a number of ways. You can use 1 color or several for your flowers, make however many flowers you prefer and space them apart however you want.
I love making my projects as customizable as possible. The free written pattern includes sizes XS-XXL, as usual. If you missed this matching 3D flower skirt, you should definitely give it a look. The two go together like peanut butter and jelly (for you guys, for me it’s like garlic and chilies 😂)
I used Lion Brand Coboo again on this as I just think it has the best feel and drape for these types of garments. I know some people don’t like it, and I recommend using whatever yarn you prefer as long as it’s the same weight and your gauge swatch is a match.

Flower Crochet Crop Top Pattern
Row 1 ( Color A ) : ch 48( 51, 54, 57, 60, 63 ), 1 sc into second ch from hook and each ch across. Total of 47( 50, 53, 56, 59, 62 ) sc
Row 2 ( Color A ) : Turn, ch 1 ( do not count as a st ), 1 sc into the bl of each st across. Total of 47( 50, 53, 56, 59, 62 ) sc
Row 3 – Row 126( 134, 144, 152, 162, 170 ) : REP Row 2 with color A
After you reach the end of row 126( 134, 144, 152, 162, 170 ) we’ll connect the ends together. Turn, ch 1, sl st into each st of both ends together across forming a crop top. Turn your crop top inside out so that the bump from the join is on the inside then cut the yarn.
Straps ( Make 2 )
*Note* The length of the chain determines the length of your strap. If you want longer or shorter shoulder straps, just make more or less chains when you start.
Row 1 ( Color A ) : Leave a 6-8 inch long tail, then make a ch until you reach about 11.5( 12, 12.5, 13, 13.5, 14 ) inches long, 1 sc into second ch from hook and each ch across
Row 2 ( Color A ) : Turn, ch 1, 1 sc into each st across, cut the yarn and leave about a 6-8 inch long tail.
Flowers for the straps
For the flowers, I used colors B, C and D. You can customize your straps depending on how many flowers you want to make, how many colors you want to use and how far you want the flowers spaced apart.
Here’s what I recommend:
- Color B make 6( 6, 6, 6, 8, 8 ) Flowers
- Color C make 6( 6, 8, 8, 8, 8 ) Flowers
- Color D make 8( 8, 8, 8, 8, 8 ) Flowers
Step 1 : Leave a 6-8 inch long tail, then ch 5, sl st into first ch that we did forming a ring. Check picture 1 and 2 below
Step 2 : ch 2, 2 dc, ch2, sl st. All into same ring sp. Check picture 1, 2, 3 and 4 below
Step 3 : REP step 2 four more times and you’ll have five petals total, ch 1 and cut the yarn leave about a 6-8 inch long tail. Check picture below
Sew The Flowers to your straps
When you sew the flowers to your straps, you can also customize them by alternating colors how ever you like . Here’s what I recommend, but don’t be afraid to get creative.
I sew color D first, then C, followed by B with my flowers spaced about 1″-1.5″ apart. Use the tails we left on the flowers to sew them to the straps.
- Color B sew 3( 3, 3, 3, 4, 4 ) Flowers to each strap
- Color C sew 3( 3, 4, 4, 4, 4 ) Flowers to each strap
- Color D sew 4( 4, 4, 4, 4, 4 ) Flowers to each strap
Sew the straps to your crochet crop top
*Note* I recommend to pin the straps to your top before you sew and trying on the top after you pin them, so that way you can adjust it how you’d like it to fit.
Here’s what I recommend, but feel free to experiment:
Turn your crop top right side out. Using the tail we left on the straps earlier to sew, measure from the center of the arm pit (on either side) to about 3 to 4″ towards the center and sew your first strap. Repeat on the other side.
Next we’ll turn the crop top around and repeat the same process on the back side. Make sure the front and back straps line up evenly. Now just weave all the ends and you’re all set!
Congrats on your Flower Crochet Crop Top!
I’m really looking forward to see how creative everyone gets with these. I hope you all enjoy. See you next time, happy making!
