8 Eye-Catching Crop Top Knitting Patterns

One of my personal goals is to have a hand knit wardrobe, full of clothing that I’ve made myself. It’s amazing to have clothing that’s custom fit, and every piece is a reflection of my personality. I feel so proud and confident wearing my hand knit clothes. Crop tops are the embodiment of confidence. They’re perfect when you want to feel cute and flirty.

Crop tops are easy to knit and work up fast. They’re generally knit in the round from the bottom up, then you knit the front, back, and straps separately. You can customize these patterns to whatever length you’re comfortable with. For more beautiful summer tops, take a look at 10 Free Tank Top Knitting Patterns.
