Hey, everyone! I’m Jessica, the founder behind The Hook Nook, and I REALLY like to make pretty things.

You can now find my own The Hook Nook brand designer crochet hooks, yarn and craft accessories at in my online shop and at various retailers!

Now you have completed your crop top. Woohoo! Attach a yarn needle to the tail of one of your ties. Using the photo below as a guide, sew the tie through the top. Repeat with the other tie. This design allows for a custom fit for most sizes. If you choose to sell your crop tops, you can advertise them as a one size fits most. You can tell your customer the measurements of the piece and allow them to decide if they think it will fit their bust. I am a 30D and you can see above how it fits me. The tie design allows it to fit most band sizes. As for cup size, it will be based on their comfort level. 


Congratulations on completing your Peek-A-Boo Crop Top! I can’t wait to see the color choices you choose. If you post your photos to Instagram, please tag me and use the hashtag #thehooknookers to share with others!
