Crochet Halter top pattern ~ step by step with pictures
This Halter top is perfect to wear on top of a bikini, a singlet, or a bathing suit. I used quite chunky yarn and crochet hook 5.0 mm and 4.00 mm. In this pattern, I use the stitch ‘chainless single crochet’. You can also use a regular foundation chain. The front consists of 3 motifs and solomon’s chains between the motifs. You only need to apply step 1 of Solomon’s knot to complete this chain. If you don’t want to use Solomon’s knot, you can use regular chains.
I also use Broomstick technique in this motif.

I really enjoyed making this Halter Crochet Top. Please share it if you liked it too. :)
The Waffle stitch is quite easy, at least once you figured out the edging. All you have to do is to pay attention to the beginning of row 2 and 3 and you will be fine. The Waffle stitch uses a FRONT POST Double Crochet stitch (FPDC). It is called a Front post as it pushes the stitch to the front as you can see.
The first thing you have to do is to make a chain that is divided by 3. In my case 15. Then you have to add 4 extra chain for edging. I made 19 chains all up.
Row 1. Ch 19, turn, 1 dc in 3rd chain from hook, 1 dc in each dc to end. All up 18 dc. Turn.
Row 2. Ch 2, 1 FPDC in next dc, 1 dc in next dc, *1 FPDC in next 2 dc, 1 dc in next dc*, rep between ** to end, end with 1 dc in turning chain (or ch 2 in later rows). Turn.
Row 3. Ch 2, 1 dc in next 2 dc, *1 FPDC in next dc, 1 dc in next 2 dc*, rep between ** to end. Turn.
Repeat row 2 and 3 until you have the desired length.
