Harmony Crop Top Crochet Pattern

Maker

Hey Guys!

I’m Bailey, the Maker behind Hooked On Tilly. You can find me on Instagram @hookedontilly

I’ve been captured by the occupation of an entrepreneur as long as I can remember. I adored the idea of being my own boss and fabricating something with my own two hands. I’ve done everything from sewing to crocheting. I’ve also recently began knitting and I can’t get enough of it! When I got pregnant with my daughter I knew I needed to find something for myself; being a stay at home mom can once in a while make you go just a little stir crazy, especially when the baby isn’t even born yet! I found myself looking through Instagram and that is when I stumbled upon Jessica, (Yes THE Jessica who’s blog I’m now writing for) at the time she was making these gorgeous puff stitch beanies, I loved them! I admired how relaxing crocheting appeared and she definitely made it way cooler than any grandma could. So, I went out and purchased my first crochet hook and some chunky yarn and here I am today. It took much trial and error, many tears, trashed projects and ideas. Then later I found inspiration in writing patterns. The creative independence pattern writing allows is truly astonishing! I love being able to imagine something and bring it to life with my own two hands. I now am adventuring into Youtube videos and hopefully, within the next few months, I will have my own website.

Today I bring to you the harmony crop top. This wonderfully simple, yet versatile top has been inspired by my minimalist style wardrobe. It can easily be dressed up, or dressed down for a casual night out. The light weight yarn is perfect for spring time in the sun. Best of all, this pattern is fun, beginner friendly, and works up rather quickly. I hope you all enjoy it, and thank you for all of the support and inspiration, it’s truly wonderful.
