Rainbow Mesh Crochet Crop Top | Free Crochet Pattern & Tutorial for Beginners

If I had a dime for every project I started that took two years to release…I’d be rich. Just kidding! I can say this crochet design started simple, and when I started sizing it, it became an entirely different animal. πŸ˜… I’ll detail its creation later; for now, know this crochet crop top pattern is perfect for summer and great for beginners. It’s definitely one to add to the list of free, easy crochet summer tops this year, and you’ll be happy you did.

The Rainbow Mesh Tee uses chains and basic stitches. Single crochet and double crochet are the stars of this pattern, and the assembly is super simple too!

Here is how it all started; I set out to modify my honeycomb mesh crochet pattern and make a rainbow version of my favorite (and most popular) crochet top ever. The original honeycomb mesh pattern is pretty straightforward, so naturally, I thought just making a few tweaks would be a-okay! Lol, nope.

This crop top pattern nearly killed me πŸ™ƒ. Seriously! It wasn’t the difficulty of the actual stitches, but writing all the sizes. After much toiling, it is here! I created this out of my love of rainbows and mostly for my daughter Terra. She is pictured on the blog with my grandson (he was crying in the photo-shoot because, well… toddlers) He loved it when he was the center of attention πŸ˜€ lol.

Oh little one…mommy is just taking a picture πŸ˜€

Despite it looking like a straightforward crochet crop top pattern, there was some difficulty sizing it up. πŸ™€ Specifically, because I use the front and back loop crochet technique, it is a simple technique that creates an even, solid line but forces us to remember there is a right side and a wrong side to it.

In this Easy Crochet Top Pattern, you will Learn…

  • How to crochet a crop top.
  • Front loop only (FLO) crochet.
  • Working in the back loop only (BLO).
  • Whipstitch assembly.

Video Tutorial for Visual Learners

I created a short video on how to work the honeycomb mesh stitch and how to work the front and back loop rows. Check it out on YouTube: Rainbow Mesh Tee Crop Top video or jump to the tutorial at the bottom of the page.

Rainbow Mesh Crochet Crop Top

The Rainbow Mesh Tee is a free crochet crop top pattern made for the crochet beginner in mind. 100% cotton in stunning Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton, this pattern is fast, fun, and cool in the sun!

It’s all About the Yarn…

I used Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton for this pattern in all the glorious colors. If you want to change up the colors, they have so many colorways to choose from.

24/7 cotton stands the test of time of colorfastness and washing repeatedly. My mesh top from last summer is still very colorful and bright.

insert hook in indicated stitch, yo, draw up a loop, yo draw through 2 loops.

dc – double crochet

yo, insert hook in indicated stitch, *yo, draw through 2 loops – rep from * one more time.

+ Pattern Notes

  • Ch 4 counts as 1 dc and a ch 2.
  • Sizing is approximate.
  • Counting tip – count the holes.
  • Stitch and mesh counts are listed at the beginning of each size in the notes.
  • Pattern construction – we create two panels (front and back) and sew them together.
  • The pattern works top-down.
  • Before sewing, make sure the right sides are facing each other.

+  Instructions

The Rainbow Mesh Tee is created by crocheting two panels (front and back panel).  Front and back panel instructions are below.  Find your sizeπŸ˜€.

Remember: this yarn and stitch will stretch about 2” once worn, and I’ve accounted for the stretch in the sizing tables, if it seems small when you first put it on, give it a day – it will stretch to perfect fit.

If you notice a mistake, please let me know!  Despite rigorous testing, there may be something we missed!  Leave a comment below to tell me you love it (or hate it!) lol

Crochet crop tops are a lot of fun. Many say crochet is a cool weather hobby, but I really love the summer patterns and beach patterns! I have a few more of those in these posts. Check them out too and try something different! Tunisian Crochet is one of my favorites, and there is plenty of that too!
