Crochet Sexy Boho Crop Top | Tutorial DIY


starting off this sexy little number
we’re first gonna grab our category four yarn make a slipknot we’re gonna grab
our five millimeter hook and we’re gonna start off by making a chain that goes
from your side to where your cleavage is and by side I mean where your underarm
is I like that side not side boob so I’m go ahead and make that chain I’m gonna
meet you guys back once we have that done and just as a reference so I’m
gonna have a chain of six inches once we have our chain we’re going to block off
that last chain that we made chain up another three this counts as a double
crochet we’re going to prepare for a double crochet insert our hook into that
chain that we’ve blocked off or the fourth chain from the hook and we’re
going to put a double crochet in there and then also going down our chain
putting one double crochet into each of our loops and what’s going to make it to
the end we’re gonna chain up three decrease and work our way back but I’ll
show you guys how to do that once when we get there we’ve now made it all the
way across with our first row of solid double crochet and the rest of this is
going to be more solid double crochet but on the ends of every other row we’re
going to be doing a decrease so let’s show you guys how to decrease our first
gonna chain up three this counts as a double crochet we’re gonna flip our work
prepare for a double crochet and then into this first loop we’re going to
insert our hook yarn over pull through once we have that we’re going to insert
our hook into that next loop yarn over pull through and then from here we’re
gonna yarn over pull through three and over pull through two and then that
counts as a decrease and then from here we’re gonna go back down every loop that
we have put in just one double crochet but leaving the last three loops because
we’re gonna be decreasing into the third and second to last and then in the last
last we’re going to be doing a regular double crochet I don’t meet you guys
back once when we get there so we have double crocheted all the way down like I
said we left the last three loops and then into these next two loops we’re
going to be doing our decrease so we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet
insert our hook in through the first loop yarn over pull through and through
that next loop yarn over pull through yarn over pull through three yarn over
pull through two and that is decrease prepare for a double crochet
and then into this last loop that we have we’re gonna be going in with just
one double crochet and then this is what we should have so far and then now that
we have our first row decrease our next row is going to be a row of regular
double crochets so like I said earlier we’re going to be decreasing into every
other row so as you guys can see we’re in the third row this is a row of non
decreases and we’re actually just going to keep going up like this all the way
up until our pattern reaches about our shoulder and then it’s okay if it
doesn’t come to an actual point that is actually better because we’re going to
need to make a strap that goes up and over your shoulder as well but we’re not
going to do that right away because we need to know the length until we get to
the bottom band first so I’m going to keep doing this until I get to about
four loops into the top of the triangle that we’re doing right now and then I
will show you guys what to do from there so I went ahead and made both of my
triangle cups I know that I didn’t tell you guys to do it but you guys can get
started on yours ones when we’re done talking about this real quick and we
just need to talk about one of them cause they’re exactly the same so we’re going
to toss that one and then once when we get here I went ahead and did the
pattern that I showed you guys which was decreasing in two every other row all
the way until we got to about the tip of our shoulder and for me from the bottom
Chloe up to the top that I write that I had right here is two and a half inches
and as you guys can see I didn’t keep going until I came up to a point I have
about three loops left into this guy and then from here once when we have our
measurement that we need after we make the bottom band cause that’s what we’re
gonna do next and then we’re gonna go in with just a solid band that goes all the
way back and then from there we can start working on the shoulder portion
but once when I made this portion I went ahead and cut and tied and did that to
both of my cups and then from there we will do the bottom band so go ahead and
make both of your cups cut and tie once when it gets high enough and then I’ll
meet you guys back so I already have both of my cups done and
now you I should have both of your cups done too and then once we have this
we’re gonna start working on the bottom band so really quickly once we have the
cups done we’re gonna want to measure out the sides and see how far back we
want this to reach and I’m just going to make a chain of three inches I’m gonna
connect it to this corner single crochet all the way across do a little chain in
between and then single crochet back all the way across and then do another chain
of three inches on this side but I’ll show you guys how to do that but I’m
first going to make my chain of 3 inches and I’ll meet you guys back when I’m
ready to attach it to this corner I now have my chain and what we’re gonna do
from here is grab one of our cups and then into this corner loop that we have
we’re going to insert our hook and then once when it’s inserted we’re going to
yarn over pull through everything and then now we have this little chain that
is attached to one of our cups and once we’re here we’re going to go in putting
one single crochet into every roots that we have once we make it to the end and
then once we make it to the end we’re going to need to make a chain that goes
in between our boobs and then I’ll talk you guys to I’ll talk to you guys about
that ones when we get there I cannot speak but yeah I’ll meet you guys back
–lens when we have single crochet all the way across we have single crocheted
all the way across and then now we’re going to do a little chain and then
attach it to our next cup that we have and then this is going to be different
depending on your bust size my little chain is going to consist of just one
singular chain so I’m just going to have this guy and then once we have that
insert our yarn and so our yarn Wow insert our hook into this corner
pull through everything and then go ahead and single crochet all the way
down once we make it to the end we’re going to do the same amount of chains
that we have on this side to keep it even and then I will meet you guys back
we now have our row of chain two single crochet two chain two single crochet two
chain and once we have this our next row is going to be fairly simple we’re going
to block off that last chain we’re going to chain up three this
counts as a double crochet prepare for a double crochet insert our hook into that
fourth loop from the hook or the one that we blocked off and we’re going to
go ahead and go forth with putting one double crochet into every loop that we
have working all the way back down our work that we have we have double
crocheted across our bottom band that we have right now and the next row that
we’re going to do is actually just a really simple row of knit so we’re gonna
start off by chaining up four here’s one two three four the first three count is
a double crochet we’re going to flip our work prepare for a double crochet we’re
gonna skip one loop double crochet into the loop after that and then that is our
first net let’s do this together again going to chain up one prepare for a
double crochet skip the next loop double crochet into the loop after that and
then that is our net and then we’re gonna keep doing this all the way across
we have just finished up doing our row of netting along the bottom border and
now we’re going to be doing a row of diamonds so all that is is we’re going
to chain up three that counts as a double crochet we’re going to flip our
work we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet and then into this first double
crochet loop that we have not this gap put this first double crochet loop we’re
going to go in with a double crochet we’re going to chain one two three
prepare for a double crochet and then go into that same loop with a double
crochet and that is our diamond and then once we have that we’re not going to do
anything in-between we’re just gonna automatically prepare for a double
crochet into that next double crochet loop put a double crochet on top of that
and then from here prepare for a double crochet insert into the next loop with a
double crochet chain3 prepare for a double crochet and then
double crochet into that same loop so it’s going to be a row of double crochet
diamond double crochet diamond and we’re going to do this all the way across and
this is going to be the rest of our bottom but we will beat you guys back
one so we’re done with this row so I’m gonna show you guys how to do the next
row we are nearly done with our first row of diamonds and I just wanted to
come back to you guys really quick to see if some of you guys ended
heroes like mine so as you guys can see into my third to last loop I have a
diamond and my second to last I have a double crochet and then if we’re
following the pattern it should be a diamond but we want to end on a solid
double crochet so if yours ends like mine and doesn’t end on an actual solid
double crochet what we’re going to do is just change out one prepare for a double
crochet skip one loop go on to the loop right after that with a double crochet
and we’re only doing this so that this can be easier for us to go into with our
corset back type once we insert that but then once when we get here every row
that we’re gonna have after this that is a diamond is going to be exactly the
same that we just did so we’re going to start off by making a chain up of three
we’re gonna flip our work and then if your next loop that you have is a
diamond go straight into that diamond with another diamond on top but like I
said since my next loop that I have is a double crochet I’m gonna be chaining out
four because remember we did that one loop in between prepare for a double
crochet double crochet into that next double crochet loop that I have but then
if you guys don’t all you’re gonna do is prepare for a double crochet and then
into this diamond loop we’re gonna go in with another diamond so here’s don’t
want it one double crochet chain out three one double crochet into the
diamond in the previous row and then let’s do a couple more together we’re
gonna prepare for a double crochet into this double crochet loop that we have go
in with a solid double crochet and then into this next one we have a diamond so
we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet double crochet into that diamond gap
chain out three prepare for a double crochet put another double crochet into
that diamond gap and we’re going to keep doing this all the way down and we’re
gonna keep going back and forth until you guys have two lengths at the bottom
and that you want – maybe about an inch and a half or not an inch and a half an
inch or a half an inch because we are going to end off of the row of double
crochet just to kind of even everything out and then I will meet you guys back
as you guys can see we are just about done with our rows of diamonds and I did
a total of three rows if you guys want to see and then from this first double
crochet row all the way to the end I have about two and a half inches and we
are nearly done with the bottom border or
going to go in with another row of double crochet along the bottom just to
kind of encapsulate the bottom border altogether but once we get here we’re
going to chain up three this counts as a double crochet we are going to flip our
work we’re going to chain out one extra so a chain of a four in total then into
this first diamond we’re going to put one single crochet and then in order to
skip over to the next time and that we have because they’re not going to be
maintaining these double crochets in the middle we’re just gonna do a quick chain
up of two we’re gonna skip this double crochet go into the next time and gap
with a single crochet do this one more time chain up two into the next diamond
gap single crochet and we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down once we make
it to the end we’re going to chain up three work our way back with a row of
solid double crochet but I’ll meet you guys back once we get to the end so we
can do that together here at our very last diamond that we have and as you
guys can see really quickly we just have a solid line that goes straight across
our bottom border for work and then once we get here all we’re gonna do is chain
out one prepare for a double crochet double crochet into the loop that we
have right next to our very last time and that we have then once we get here
we’re going to chain up three flip our work and then we’re just going to go
into every loop that we have with one double crochet so we’re gonna prepare
for a double crochet into that next loop put one double crochet then we’re gonna
keep doing this all the way down once we make it to the end we’re going to cut
and tie this is what our work should be looking like once when we have hoops
once when we have finished the bottom border we just went in with our row of
double crochet along the bottom and I cut and tied and then the next thing
that we have to do is actually do with the back strap so that we can get
started on the sleeve as you guys can see are you have one side done well I’m
just going to show you guys what it looks like this is the back strap that
we’re going to start on right now just this solid double crochet portion that
comes all the way down and then we connect it down to the base and then the
sleeve is going to come afterwards so right before we get started we’re going
to put this up to ourselves and then we’re going to measure from the tip of
our triangle this is going to go up and over our shoulder and then connect down
to this what is this bottom water section
then we’re going to connect it so once when we have that measurement we’re just
gonna keep going back and forth with however many double crochet loops you
have right here as you guys can see I have three loops so I’m gonna keep going
back and forth with three double crochet going up all the way up and over so I
can connect it right here and just to let you guys know from this point down
to here I’m going to have eleven and a half inches and so go ahead and insert
your yarn insert your hook go back and forth and I’ll meet you guys back once
when we are ready to attach it to this back portion I now have my eleven and a
half inches and you guys should have whatever measurement you guys have and
now we’re ready to connect it to the back and I’m going to be speaking on
doing the second one they’re gonna be done exactly the same but there’s just a
little thing that you have to keep an eye out when you do the second one so
for the first one it doesn’t matter go ahead and just make sure that your
bottom band and your what is this what is this your your back strap our
sandwich next to each other please do not mind me make sure that they are
sandwiched next to each other and then we’re just gonna flip our work and see
how many loops we have on our back strap like I said I have one two three loops
that I was working into so into our bottom band we’re gonna count out one
two three loops insert our hook into that third loop and we’re gonna yarn
over and pull through everything on our hook and then we’re just gonna do the
rest together into the next available loop into the strap insert your hook
into the next available loop into the bottom band insert your over pull
through secure the single crochet and since we have one more we’re just gonna
do this together insert into the last loop or next loop however many loops you
guys have and then insert it into the next loop that you guys have in the
bottom band single crochet chain up one to secure and then what I was saying
about having the the second one was that you’re gonna want to make sure that your
seams are facing the same side so you’re going to want to make sure that one is
an inside or outside you can’t really tell so it’s not that big of a deal but
if you want yours to look clean just make sure that they are on the right
side so go ahead and just make sure you fold your stuff the right way once
when your sandwich in your work together but once when we have that now we can
start working on the sleeves I cannot think of words today to get started on
the sleeves we’re first going to take a look at our armhole and we’re gonna be
working into this gap that we’ve made for ourselves so we’re gonna take a
start at right next to our cup it doesn’t have to but we’re just gonna do
this just for videos sake just to make things easier for you guys to follow
along so we’re going to take a look at where our cup is and then from here
we’re going to take a look and see where the second available loop is into this
base so as you can see we’re in this loop so we’re gonna count out one two
insert your hook into that second loop we’re gonna make a slipknot insert that
onto our hook we’re gonna pull through chain up one two secure and then from
here we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet no we’re gonna prepare for a
half double crochet and then we’re gonna take a look at our cup and then we’re
gonna see where all of our side double crochets are and then in between this
first and second row there’s gonna be a little loop that goes right in between
so we’re gonna insert our hook into that loop with a half double crochet so
insert yarn over pull through everything that’s how we do our half double
crochets let’s do this one more time so we’re gonna chain out one prepare for a
half double crochet now we’re going to find that loop in between these two side
double crochet loops that we have and then half double crochet and we’re gonna
do this all the way down once when we get to the base we’re going to connect
it to the base with a slip stitch but I’ll show you guys how to do that one so
when we get there we have made our way all the way around with our row of half
double crochet netting and like I said we’re going to connect it to the base
and all we’re going to do is count out one two loops into the base and then the
base I mean the bottom order so we’re going to count out one two and then slip
stitch into that second loop and this is our first row for our sleeve and then
from here we’re actually going to be and the ones wave slip stitched into the
base we’re going to be slip stitching up the next two loops to work our way up to
this next row so there’s one there’s two we’re going to flip our work and then
we’re going to do a diamond into this first half double crochet loop so we’re
going to prepare for a half double crochet no oh I’m a mess
we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet insert our hook into that half double
crochet loop with a double crochet chain out three prepare for another double
crochet and put another double crochet into that same loop that were in from
here we’re going to chain one prepare for a double crochet we’re going to skip
this next half double crochet all together and then go into the one after
that with a double crochet this is what our work should be looking like and once
we have this let’s do this one more time we’re gonna chain out one prepare for a
double crochet skip this next half double crochet go into the half double
crochet after that with a double crochet chain three double crochet and then once
we have that let’s do the rest one more time so chain one prepare for a double
crochet skip this half double crochet go on to the one after that with a double
crochet and we’re going to keep doing this
all the way down and I’ll show you guys what to do once we get to the end of
this row we have made our way all the way down with our first row of diamonds
and now we’re just going to connect it down to the base again so we’re going to
count up one two loops and set your hook into that second with a slip stitch and
then that is the last time we’re going to be connecting into the base the rest
is going to be the sleeve sleeve part but once we get here we’re going to
chain out three flip our work and then we’re gonna skip this double crochet
that we have right here and then we’re going to go straight into this diamond
with another diamond so we’re going to prepare for a double crochet and then
put a diamond inside of this diamond and then whatever we did in the previous row
do the same thing on top of that so really quickly once we have this guy
I’m going to cheat out 1 prepare for a double crochets and say I have a double
crochet right here insert our hook into that double crochet with a double
crochet we’re gonna keep doing this all the way down until we have a loop or to
left because we will start to decrease into every row until we get the sleep
link that we want well I’ll meet you guys back once when we get to the other
end of this row we have made our way to the end of our second row of diamonds
and as you guys can see I left a double crochet and then a diamond at the very
end and I’m just going to show you guys how to end and start every row that you
guys want for whatever length that you guys want for the sleeve so once when we
get here we left the devil Persian diamond like I said we do have a chain
one after the last double crochet that we did so we’re going to prepare for a
double crochet double crochet into that one double crochet loop that we have and
then from here we’re going to chain one and directly into this next time we’re
just gonna be putting one double crochet and then that’ll decrease a little bit
that’ll help us get a nice smooth curve on our sleeve and then once we have this
we’re going to chain up three flip our work and then I know in the previous row
we had a chain one in between but to help it curve up just a little bit more
we’re not going to put a chain one in between so we just have our chain of
three and we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet and then put one double
crochet into that next double crochet loop that we have then once we have that
now we can continue going down the same way that we’ve been going so we’re gonna
chain up one into this diamond put another diamond so double crochet chain3
double crochet and then chain one double crochet into this loop and then keep
going back and forth like that remembering this type of decrease going
back and forth until we have the link that you guys want I’m gonna keep going
until I have just a handful of rows and I’ll meet you guys back so I can tell
you guys the length of what I have and then what to do after that so I’m back
to talk to you guys really really quickly that last row that I just showed
you I worked my way down and then did the decreases work my way up and then
worked my way back down for that next and as you guys can see we have double
crochet a diamond and then we have these other set of double crochets right here
as well and then what we’re gonna do from here is chain 1 prepare for a
double crochet double crochet into that next double crochet loop we’re gonna
chain up one and quite honestly we’re just gonna ignore these two double
crochet loops that we have so we’re just gonna double crochet once into the
diamond and once when we have that chain up 3 flip our work and then continue
doing the same thing that we have going back and forth until we have the sleeve
length that you want I will meet you guys back once when I’m done I’ll go
ahead and have at it BRB so this is what I have once when I just finished up
doing my sleeve and this is a smaller sleeve so it’s like a little cap sleeve
not a full sleeve but you guys can keep going if you guys want but this is what
I have and just to let you guys know I’m measuring from this top corner that I
have coming from this first row of our half double crochet net all the way down
to the end I have a total of 6 inches but this will vary depending on you know
how far your stuff is stretched out or what kind of pokey you use stuff like
that but that’s just what I have and then once when we have one side go ahead
into your other as you guys can see I already have my other side and then now
we can start working on making the back loops for our corset back tie that we
have next up is doing these back loops super simple but we’re doing these back
loops for our corset back tie so as you guys can see I already went ahead and
did one so I’m just going to show you guys how to do the other side so we’re
gonna take a look at this bottom band where our sleeve is obviously this is
going to be all flushed so this is perfect we’re gonna insert our hook into
this bottom corner and Sarah your urine yarn onto our hook then we’re gonna
chain up one two three four the first three count is a double crochet and then
once we get here we’re gonna prepare for a double crochet and it’s gonna be the
same way that we did the other side double crochets so we’re gonna double
crochet into these loops that we have in between the two double crochet rows so
here’s one row and here we’re gonna have one loop in between
that’s nice and clean that we can go into so we’re going to insert our hook
with a double crochet let’s do this a couple more times we’re gonna chain up
one prepare for a double crochet take a look in between these two double crochet
rows that we have there’s this loop in-between go ahead and go in there with
a double crochet and then we’re gonna keep doing this until we have however
many loops that we want my loops are actually gonna come up pretty high on
the back yours can be just a couple at the bottom which would also be really
cute or somewhere in the middle all depends on you guys but once when you
guys have that amount of loops that you want then we’re gonna do a row of single
crochet just to tidy things up a little bit but I’ll meet you guys back once
when we’re done with our loops so that we can do our single crochet I just
finished up doing my row of net and just let you guys know from the bottom all
the way up until where I stopped like I said mine is coming up really high on
the back I have a total of 13 inches but once we have the amount of rows that we
want for our net we’re gonna chain up one flip my work and then make our way
all the way down put in one single crochet into every loop once we make it
to the end we’re gonna cut and tie and then I already have mine done but you
guys go ahead and do the same thing on the other side just make sure that you
guys have the same amount of loops on both sides now this is what we should
have once when we are all finished doing our back loops and then one of the last
things that we have to do other than weaving in our ends is make one super
long chain or short change depending on how many loops you guys have in the back
but I made a SuperDuper long chain so that I can weave in and out all these
guys and then I made another chain that is not quite as long this one is
optional but I made another chain that is shorter so that it can weave in and
out of these side double crochet side double crochet loops just as decoration
doesn’t really do anything but it is cute so once we have both of those
chains done with the last things that are not one of the last last last thing
that we have to do is just weave in all of our ends
now that we’re done weaving in the ends this is our crop top all finished this
top turned out even better than what I had imagined in my head I’m so excited

    Thank you for another lovely top. I will make one as a Christmas present. I would like one for myself to make it a little less revealing. I like to make the bottom band wider, just past my waist, and instead of inserting the front criss-cross tie, I would like to work regular dc's. I hope that that will look nice on me, a senior citizen. Love all your work♥
