Crochet Pattern Round Up: 22 Summer Top Patterns

By Marie Segares of Underground Crafter

Hey everybody, I’m back again with a very special treat for us all. Marie Segares of has offered to host a few crochet pattern round ups for us over here at KnitcroAddict, and they are jam packed with amazing patterns from some of the best makers in the fiber arts community.

I have been a fan of many of these designs and designers since I started this journey years ago, so it’a huge honor to get to host their work on my blog. Thanks again to Marie and Under Ground Crafter as well as all the featured designers. I hope you all enjoy.

Now, over to Marie!

I’m so excited to be visting Wan’s blog today! If we haven’t met before, I’m Marie Segares from Underground Crafter and on my blog you can find free crochet and knitting patterns, sewing and Cricut tutorials, and all types of crafty inspiration.

It’s getting hot out there so it’s the perfect time to crochet yourself a summer top! I’m sharing a roundup of 22 of my favorite free crochet patterns for summer tops. The great thing about these is that you can layer them under a cardigan as it gets colder to get even more wear out of them. Images are © the respective designers and are used with permission.
