With big treble shells, this Valentine Lace top is sure to please! It’s the perfect loose-fitting hot day summer top! Throw it on over a tank to go out, pair it with some nice jeans for a fun date! You can even repeat the open shell pattern to your mid-thigh to make a fun and flirty beach coverup!
With the contrast from the solid bust covering and the lace lower bodice makes this design really pop! With big treble shells, this lacy top is sure to please!
You will need a 4.5mm hook, and 750 -1310 yards of sport weight yarn. I used Premier Cotton Fair in Red and White, and it’s perfect for a valentine’s date night!
For this top, I wanted something light and airy, and perfect for a summer’s day. With the open shell pattern below the bust, I hit the nail on the head. You won’t want to stop wearing it!
This blouse is constructed in multiple parts. The front and back top pieces are made according to your preferred arm hole size, then the open shell shoulder tops are made and seamed together. Finally, the shells are added in the round to finish the piece! You will need a basic understanding of the usual crochet stitches, slip stitch, single crochet, treble crochet, as well as how to seam pieces together.
