Crochet Eden Crop Top
The Eden crop top uses very simple stitches and has very minimal shaping, so I would really suggest this pattern to anyone, even a newbie. The top is created by first making the waistband ribbing. Once we have accomplished the right length for your size we will join the two ends together and crochet simple single crochet stitches in the round. After completing a few rounds we will be diving the piece in two to create a v shape to the top. Both the front and the back are the same.
Measurements: This pattern follows sizes S(M, L, XL)
Gauge: 15 sc by 21 rows using 5mm hook
Yarn: Yarn – Paintbox Cotton Dk – light/weight 3/DK/8 ply ~50g/1.8oz/125m/137yds
Using 3.5mm hook
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch to end. Turn.
Row 2: ch 1, sc in BLO in each st across. Turn.
Repeat row 2 until you reach row 102(110, 118, 126).
Slst the two ends together to form a circle. We will now be working in rounds.

Crochet Neith Top
The Neith Top is crocheted by making two simple rectangles using the ever so popular granny stitch. The length of your initial chain should be long enough to go from your under bust, up around your shoulder and down your back. Once you are happy with your chain length we will crochet a certain amount of rows until the rectangle is wide enough to cover one half of your chest and fall below your shoulder. You will then make another piece the same way.
Sizing & Measurements: This pattern does not give precise sizes but it does give you the proper steps needed so you can make the top to your own specific size.
Yarn: Yarn – sport/fine – Hobbii Twister Solid – 55% cotton, 45% acrylic – 400m per ball.
Using the 3.5mm hook:
Chain to your preferred “measurement A” as shown in diagram above.
