Ronia Top - Free Crochet Pattern

closeupronia.jpg

Today I have a seriously fun pattern to share with you all. The Ronia Top, bubbly puff stitches and the beautiful drape of the drop stitch gives this top a dainty spring feel. I am absolutely in love with the look of this top! You can wear it almost anywhere, dress it up or down. I love wearing the Ronia Top with skirts, shorts, high waisted pants, you name it.

Don’t be intimidated by the look of this pattern, using three basic stitches - Puff stitch, Drop stitch, and the Herringbone half double crochet you can make this top too! Don’t know how to work these stitches? No problem, I’ve got video tutorials for each stitch to help you along the way.

Seaming

Notes -

  1. Use any seaming method you prefer. I will be using the mattress stitch.

  2. Blocking is recommended but not necessary before seaming.

Step 1 - Seam shoulder portions of each panel together.

Step 2 - Seam Sleeves perpendicular to each shoulder.

Step 3 - Seam from the band up to the cuff.
