It might be the middle of winter here in the Midwest, but I am longing for days of sunshine and warmth. I think that is why I was so drawn to this crop top pattern the moment I came across it on Etsy. It reminds me of more carefree times of festivals, live music, and free love.

Even though current social restrictions have made it impossible to gather for celebrations of life, love, and music (rightly so), I thought it might be fun to stitch up this Cannabis Crop Top anyway. Though, I made it a size smaller than the one I require these days so it wouldn’t be stuffed in a drawer until it becomes warm enough to wear…or I lose weight. *ha*

Make It AgainI will definitely make this again.

Overall OpinionThis was the first article of clothing I have crocheted, and I am quite pleased with the result. The instructions were easy to follow along with, and the photos helped were words weren’t enough.
I think this top would be amazing attire for Coachella or other similar festivals. (Although, there is nothing stopping you from wearing it running errands.) I look forward to making again. I might even add some to my shop; that’s how well I liked it.

Recommended Resources

I currently use Clover Amour crochet hooks for all of my projects. They are an investment when purchasing the complete set. But they are SO worth it, in my opinion. Thankfully, you can also purchase them individually as you need them. I have linked the individual size I used for The Cannabis Crop Top pattern, as well.

Yarn Recommendations

As noted above, The Cannabis Crop Top is written for fine weight (#2), cotton yarn. Below you will find a few of my favorite cotton yarns that I think would work up beautifully with this pattern.
