Free Crochet Pattern for All Tied Up Top!

Free Crochet Pattern for summer toddler top by CrochetZone.com

Thank you Taryn Avery Photography for the beautiful photography.

You may remember I shared my Little Darlings crochet pattern last week, with a clue that I’d be using it on other upcoming projects….well here is the first one! I love a simple summery top for little girls, they just look so sweet don’t they?

The All Tied Up Top couldn’t be simpler to make and more comfortable to wear. I love it in these fun, bright colors but think it would look so elegant in an antique white or dusty rose too.

This “baby doll” styled top is designed to grow with your child. The simple ties at the shoulders and tie closure at the back make it easy to get more than one season’s worth of wear. The textured top section is known as the Trinity Stitch and is easy to make. I found a nice tutorial for you on Oombawka Designs if you have trouble. The bottom is a simple lacy sequence that is easy to customize for length. You could even make it dress length and wear it as a pinafore or work the skirt part in the round for a traditional dress. I love patterns that give you multiple options don’t you?

I’ve sized it in a 2T/3T and 4T/5T, but it is easy to adjust and you should be able to customize to your needs. And, for the cute little flower, see my Little Darlings flower pattern by clicking the picture below.

    Hi just double checking, how long is the bodice portion?
    I know it’s 24inches wide but how long? 🙂

  2. CrochetZone

    Not yet 🙂

  3. Linda Diduck

    Is there a pattern for a skirt to go with the hat and summer top?? Would really like that. But until then I guess I have to come up with my own.

  4. CrochetZone

    I’ve added one to the post, you can also see it here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/all-tied-up-summer-top

    Wish you posted a picture of the back.

    Hi there, unfortunately at this time I have limited sizing, however the pattern is pretty easy to adjust. Start with a smaller chain and adjust the pattern repeat accordingly. For sizing, you can use the Yarn Council Standards, found here: http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/

    I was wondering if there is a way you can make this for an infant size 6 months. I would appreciate it if you could help in any way. this is a very cute top and would love to make this for my granddaughter. I am a beginner at crocheting so I need all the help I can get.
    Thank you for the help in this matter.

    You can certainly use a worsted weight yarn and the ball of skein or manufacturer should recommend a hook size appropriate for the yarn, however, the sizing would be significantly different from this pattern.

  9. CrochetZone

    Right now this is the only sizing I have readily available, however, you can start with a smaller beginning chain and adjust the repeats for the sizing you want.

    Thank you for such a cute little pattern.. I was wondering if it would be possible to get help making the pattern fit a finished width of 20inches instead of the 24inches ( I’m a beginner and my conversion skills need work) I’d really appreciate any help you could offer !

  11. Sheronna Rhodes

    Do you think this will work with worsted weight yarn? If yes, what size hook do you suggest? Thanks

  12. CrochetZone

    You are welcome, I hope you get a chance to make it.

    Thank you for sharing this sweet little top pattern!
