Different Crochet Crop Top Pattern Styles
As you’ll see in the roundup of crochet crop top patterns below, there are many different shirt styles that count as crop tops. The idea, generally, is that the shirt is shorter than a traditional t-shirt or sweater. However, within that, there’s a lot of variety, from crochet bralettes like you’d see at Coachella to the increasingly popular bodiless crochet sweaters that you wear over other tops.
