Crochet Halter top pattern ~ step by step with pictures

Sexy crochet halter top free crochet pattern

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.

Row 1. 15 chainless single crochet. Turn, 1 sc in 3rd sc from hook, continue to end, sl st in last sc. Turn and sl st in 1st sc.

Crochet Waffle Stitch

crochet waffle stitch

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.
