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.

I had a great idea to Crochet an Emu wearing High Heel Stilettos. Yeah, it didn’t happen. Instead, I crochet a pair of mini Stilettos and one Big Crochet Emu….:D HAHA…. At least, I got two cool projects out of this Idea. I am very happy about the Emu. It looks very decorative on top of my bookshelf. I have crochet decorations throughout my house.
