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.

Front halter top motifs

Make 2.

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.

Row 2. In each 3-chainless sc space crochet 3 hdc. Turn.

Row 3. Ch 2, 1 dc in same st as ch 2, *1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st*, rep between to end.

Row 4. Ch 2, 1 dc in each dc to end.

Row 5. Rep row 3.

Row 6. Ch 2, *1 dc in next 2 dc, 2 dtr in next st*, rep between to end, sl st in ch 2.

Use a 10 mm knitting needle for the broomstick section starting row 7.

Row 7. Attach loop in each st around the knitting needle.

Row 8. Attach 4 loops together with sl st, 2 sc in same 4 loops, *ch 5, 2 sc in 4 loops together*, rep to end.

Row 9. In each 5 ch sp crochet: 1 hdc, 1 dc, 1 tr, 1 dtr around the 2 dtr round 6, 1 tr, 1 dc, 1 hdc. End with sl st in last st.

Cobweb motif to go between the 2 front motifs.

Row 1. Ch 4, turn, sl st in first ch to make a circle.

Row 2. Ch 3, 17 dc in circle, sl st in ch 3.

Row 3. *Ch 5, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in next st* rep to end, end with 1 sc in 1st ch of ch 5.

Row 4. *Ch 7, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in next st* rep to end, end with 1 sc in 1st ch of ch 7.

Row 5. *Ch 9, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in next st* rep to end, end with 1 sc in 1st ch of ch 9.

Row 6. *Ch 11, sk 2 sts, 1 sc in next st* rep to end, end with 1 sc in 1st ch of ch 11. Fasten off. Weave in ends. Attach between the motifs as picture shows. Use a sewing needle and thread.

Use Solomon’s knot technique (only step 1 of Solomon’s knot is necessary to get this result) and crochet back and forth between the two halves (see image below). You can also use regular chains.

Back crochet halter top motif

Row 1. Ch 3, turn, 11 dc in 3rd ch from hook, sl st in ch 3.
