Are Crochet Tops Good for Summer?

The short answer is YES, there are many summer crochet tops! Crochet top patterns typically include lightweight yarns and sometimes looser stitches, making them very comfortable to wear in warmer weather. You can make crochet blouses, tank tops, crop tops, tunics, and swimsuit covers that fit you.

How Much Yarn Do I Need to Crochet a Summer Top?

The amount of yarn you’ll need will depend on the type of crochet top and the size you want to make. Crop tops will require fewer skeins than tank tops and blouses, but generally, you can expect to use between 3 and 9 skeins of yarn for any crochet top.
