Girls’ Boho Halter Top Crochet Pattern

It seemed to take a while to get here this year but summer is officially in full swing. My daughter Noelle and I have moved up to the lake for the summer holidays and are soaking up the amazing weather. 

For me, time at the beach means time to crochet. Anyone who finds me at the beach will see me sitting with my crochet bag alongside my chair and with yarn and a hook in my hands. This year has been no different. My first project was a cute color block bag (coming shortly) and then this cute halter top for Noelle.

Sadly, this morning we dropped Noelle off at rhythmic gymnastics camp in the Okanagan. Now, it’s obviously not sad that she’s at gymnastics camp, she’s going to have an amazing time, but it’s just sad for me to be without Noelle for 2 weeks – the longest we’ve ever been away from each other 🙁

If you aren’t familiar with the Okanagan in British Columbia, it’s an incredibly beautiful lake-filled valley where the average summer day is around 35 degrees Celcius in the summer. Needless to say, you want to remain as cool as possible when you’re there. This is where my idea for this cute halter top pattern comes in. After 9 hours of gymnastics training, starting early in the day, Noelle is going to be very hot after practice and will be heading right to the water to cool off. She might as well stay cool on the way to the beach or pool by wearing this breezy halter top.

I’ve never made a crochet halter top before but I have to say, I absolutely love this top and it was super easy to make. I whipped it up in only a few hours. The most challenging part of the halter top is crocheting stitches together (double crochet 2 together) but once you’ve got that mastered (it’s really easy) you’ll have this adorable top made before you know it. Also, if you’re looking for something a little more modest, you could make the bottom part longer or add a fringe to cover more of the belly.

Girls’ Boho Halter Top Crochet Pattern

NOTES: Pattern in U.S. crochet terminology

 

SKILL LEVEL: Easy/Intermediate

MATERIALS:

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sl = slip stitch
  • dc = double crochet
  • dc2tog = double crochet 2 together

NOTES:

I made this halter top to fit my 12-year-old daughter who is quite small – probably closer to a 9-year-old. But, this pattern is very forgiving as far as size goes as it has the long ties that go around the back and are adjustable and adaptable. I would say this would fit most girls age 7 – 13.

Row 24: Ch3, dc, ch, *dc, ch* rep* across row, ending with ch3.

Now, with the yarn still on your hook keep chaining until you’ve reached the desired length for the top strap (I made it about 12” long). Cut and tie into a tight knot at the end of the strap.

Finish

With your hook on the opposite side of the top of the halter top, attach yarn and chain a strap the same size as your first strap. Cut and tie into a tight knot at the end of the strap.

Next, with your hook in the bottom left corner, attach your yarn and chain a strap to your desired length (I made this strap about 10 inches long but my daughter has a very tiny torso, make your strap the appropriate size for the person who’s wearing it). Cut and tie into a tight knot at the end of the strap. Repeat on the right bottom corner to make the last corner.

If you’d like an embellishment, you could add fringe to the bottom of your halter at this point.
