Crochet Turtleneck Hoodie Crop Top | Tutorial DIY


so to get this top started we are going
to grab our category four a yarn make a slipknot grab our six millimeter hook
and we’re going to make a chain that comes out to five inches or from your
underarm to where you want the bottom of the crop top to be keeping in mind that
we will have a border as well once we have our five inches we are going to
block off that last chain chain up one extra and go ahead and put a single
crochet into that chain that we blocked off or the second loop from the hook and
then single crochet once into every loop that we have going back down our chain
so we’ve single crocheted once into every chain that we had now we’re going to
work our way back up so go ahead and chain up one flip our work and we’re
gonna be working our way back up with single crochets but working into the
back loops only so instead of going in through both loops like we typically do
we’re just gonna be working in the back loops with a single crochet and put one
single crochet in the back loop once into every loop that we have until we
get to the end and then we’re going to do an increase so once we single
crocheted once into every back loop that we had we just have one left to do and
like I said we’re going to do an increase so go into the back loop with
one two single crochet and we’re only going to be increasing on one end so
this bottom end is going to be blunt so we’re going to increase again into the
next row go ahead and chain up one flip your work and then do two single
crochets into the back loops into that first loop so here’s one and two and
then from here single crochet once into every back loop one so we get to the end
chain up one and then work our way back do an increase on the increase side and
we’re going to keep doing this until this length gets to where the base of
the neck would be and mine would be four and a half inches now that we have our
four and a half inches now we need to make a chain from where we ended on the
increasing side to the base of the neck so from here I went ahead and measured
mine out and I’m going to add a chain that equals to three and a half inches
on top of this side if you did end on the blunt end that’s fine you could
either single crochet your way back up or you can cut and tie and then reattach
your yarn to this end with that being said go ahead and chain up as many as
you need once when I have my chain I’m going to be single crocheting back down
I’m gonna block off the last chain chain up one flip my work and then insert my
hook into that second loop from the hook or the one that we blocked off and I’m
going to be single crocheting once into every loop until we get to the bottom of
the chain once when we get to the bottom of the chain we’re going to continue
doing rows of back loop only single crochet so once we’re done single
crocheting down our chain like I said we’re going to continue doing back loop
only single crochet so once when we get here we’re gonna go into the first loop
going into the back loops only and we’re gonna single crochet all the way down
and this is going to be the main portion of the top where it goes from neck to
neck and then as you can probably guess we’re going to do rows of decrease once
we get done with that but for this solid portion we’re not going to be doing any
increases or decreases on any of the side so they’re both going to be blunt and
I’m going to do this until I have a total of eight inches so we just got
done doing the blunt portion and as you can see from one end to the next mine is
twelve and a half inches and now we’re going to start working on the underarm
section again like how we did on this side but we’re gonna do it on the other
side and from here you’re going to need to count out how many loops you had
before you did your chain up to the base of the neck so go ahead and count out
these I went ahead and counted mine I have thirty-one so from here I ended on
the bottom so that I can count up thirty-one and then start decreasing but
if you ended up at the top you can always cut in tie and then reconnect at
the bottom but once when we are at the bottom we’re going to chain up one flip
our work and then we’re gonna keep doing single crochets and the back loops only
until the number that you have matches the same number that you have on this
side and we’re gonna single crochet all the way down minus two loops so I went ahead
and single crochet in the back loops only into 29 of the loops like I said
before I have thirty-one that I need to go into so into these next two I’m going
to be doing a decrease so go ahead and insert your hook into the next loop yarn
over pull through insert your hook into the loop after that yarn over pull
through we should have three loops on the hook go ahead and yarn over and pull
through all three and then we will be decreasing only on one side keeping one
side blunt so to start the next row that’s decreasing go ahead and chain up
one flip our work and then decrease into the next two loops so insert your hook
into the first loop yarn over pull through insert your hook into the next
loop yarn over pull through yarn over pull through all three and once you get
to the end you’re going to chain up one and single crochet into the back loops
only until you get to the decreasing end and decrease and then you’re going to
keep going until you have the same amount of rows that you have down here
so I just got finished doing my second decreasing side and this is what we
should have so far obviously these two sides is going to be what the arms is
and then this is the body portion and what we’re going to do now is going to
be doing a bottom border so for the first row we’re going to be chaining up
one and then we’re going to be single crocheting once into all of these kind
of loops that we have so we’re just gonna be single crocheting all the way
down but keeping in mind not to single crochet too many times into one section
otherwise little bunch up and once we’ll be single crocheted along the bottom now
we’re going to do a row of double crochet so from here we are going to
chain up three this counts as a double crochet flip your work and we’re going
to be double crocheting once into every loop that we have going all the way down
so we just got done doing our row of double crochet and now we’re going to do
another row of double crochet but this one’s gonna be modified this is going to
be front and back post double crochets so I will show you how to do that now
we’re going to chain up three this counts as a double crochet we’re going
to flip our work and from here we’re gonna go into the front so we’re gonna
prepare for a double crochet and as you can see there’s our next double crochet
and we would typically be going into the top loop but we’re actually going to be
going behind this double crochet so we’re gonna insert our hook we’re going
to go behind that one double crochet and then we’re going to finish off our
double crochet just like usual so we’re going to yarn over pull through yarn
over pull through two yarn over pull through two and this is our front post
and we’re gonna do the same thing but in the back and we’re gonna be alternating
so we’re gonna do this one more time showing you how to do it in the back
we’re going to yarn over which is preparing for a double crochet and then
from here we’re gonna move into the back inserting our hook over the next double
crochet that we have we’re going to yarn over pull through and then yarn over
pull through two pull through two I’m going to show you guys how to do this
one more time we’re going to prepare for a double crochet for this one since
we’re alternating we’re going to go into the front of the double crochet we’re
going to yarn over and pull through yarn over pull through
to yarn over pull through two and the next one we’re going to be going into
the back so yarn over insert our hook in through the back make sure we go over
the next double crochet yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two
yarn over pull through two and from here we’re going to get this routing effect
and I already have my second one done so I’m just gonna show you what it looks
like this is what the bottom supposed to look like so we’re gonna get a really
nice ridging effect working into the back posts and we’re gonna keep doing
this all the way down so once when we are done doing our rows of back post and
front post double crochets this is what things should be looking like and then
from here you can go ahead and cut and tie and then do all of this one more
time and I already have my second one done but once we have both of these done
we’re going to connect them where the underarms lie so for my second one I
didn’t cut and tie yet I’m just going to go straight ahead into connecting them
and since my hook is still connected I’m just going to keep this connected and
I’m going to insert my hook into the next one I’m going to yarn over pull
through and then chain up one to secure it and from here I’m going to single
crochet all the way down making sure that my hook goes through both sides the
front and the back since these are side double crochets we’re going to be doing
two single crochets into those so here’s one here’s two making sure that both of
them are on the hook one single crochet two and we’re going to keep doing this
all the way down once when we get to this corner we’re going to cut and tie
and do the same thing on the other side so now that we’ve connected both the
front to the back now we’re going to work on the arm sections but right
before we do that we do need to connect the neck pieces and this is right where
the base of the neck is this isn’t mid shoulder like how we’ve been doing some
of our other sweaters but from here we’re just going to connect one corner
to the next using a chain so from here we’re just going to insert our hook into
one corner make a slipknot and then we’re going to make a chain that equals
out to one inch and then connect it to the corresponding corner on the other
side and then were going to do the same thing on the other side so now that
we’ve connected the neck pieces now we’re going to be working on the
underarm section like I said and from here we’re going to insert our hook
right into that next loop where those two sections meet and from here we’re
going to grab our yarn make a slipknot pull that through and then we’re going
to be putting a single crochet into every loop that we have until we get to
the same loop on the other side so this is going to be similar to the bottom
there’s no real loops for you to go into so go ahead and just insert your hook
wherever you can with a single crochet but also remembering not to put too many
single crochet in one section otherwise it’ll bunch up so once when you’re done
our one row single crochet all the way around I’ll show you guys how to connect
it so we’re back at that loop right in that corner where this increase and the
neck portion meet so we’re just going to insert our hook into that loop with a
slip stitch and then we’re gonna work our way up with one more slip stitch
into the neck base and from here we’re going to flip our work and then we’re
going to be doing one more row of single crochet but working in the back loops
only same way that we did with the main body portion so we’re gonna insert our
hook into the back loop with a single crochet and we’re gonna single crochet
all the way down once we get to the side connect with a slip stitch and then
we’re gonna do the same thing on the other side as well so once we’re done
doing the underarm detail as you can see right here next we’re gonna be working
on the neck and from here we’re going to be inserting our hook into any one of
these loops it doesn’t matter which one grab our yarn we’re gonna pull this
through a chain of one to secure and then we’re just gonna be putting one
single crochet into every loop that we have and as you can see these are the
not loops kind of loops to put one single crochet into each loop so we just
got done going around with our first row of single crochet and we still have two
more rows to do but for the second row that we’re going to do we’re going to be
working in the back loops only but still maintaining the single crochets and then
we’re just gonna be putting one into every loop once we get around connect
with a slip stitch and then the next row is going to be a row of regular single
crochet so once we get here now we’re going to start working on our turtleneck
portion and this is going to be a mock turtleneck so it’s going to be a little
bit shorter but once when you get here we’re going to chain up three this
counts as a double crochet and we’re going to be double crocheting once into
every loop that we have going all the way around once when we get all the way
around go ahead and count up three into that chain three that we did and connect
it with a slip stitch and once we have our first row double crochet done we’re
going to do more front and back post double crochets so
from here we’re going to chain up three prepare for a double crochet and the
first one we’re gonna go in through the front so we’re gonna come in through
behind the double crochet yarn over pull through with our double crochet and then
I’ll show you guys how to do a back one one more time so go ahead and yarn over
once not twice insert your hook in behind yarn over pull through pull
through two pull through two and we’re gonna do this for this row and the row
after this so we just got done doing our first row of back and front post double
crochet and now we’re going to connect it and we’re gonna connect it just like
how we normally do our first double crochet in this row was a chain up three
so we’re gonna count up three one two three
insert our hook into that third loop connects with a slip stitch then from
here we’re gonna do more front and back post double crochets and we are gonna be
decreasing twice on each side so four times in total and I will show you guys
how to do that so from here we’re going to chain up three this counts as a
double crochet and then until we get to the sides we’re going to be doing more
regular front and back post double crochets but making sure that we go with
the same way that we did in the last row so as you can tell this one went into
the front so we’re gonna go into the front here as well you can’t switch it
up if you want to it doesn’t mess with the pattern but I would like to keep it
all uniform so we’re gonna keep doing this and there’s no number pattern to
get to the side to where we’re gonna start decreasing so go ahead and just do
our front and back post double crochets until we get to roughly this side so
I’ve done the front and back post double crochets until I got to one corner and
then from here we’re going to do a decrease so as you can tell every other
double crochet that we have is a front post double crochet and then how we do a
decrease is that we’re just going to yarn over go behind the first front post
double crochet that we have we’re going to skip the back one entirely go into
the next front one that we have and then do a double crochet and that is where it
decreases and from here as you can see the next one is obviously going to be a
back post so we’re going to do a back post and then we’re going to be doing
one more decrease on this side until we get to the other side so I’m going to
show you how to do it one more time yarn over insert
hook behind one front post double crochet insert your hook into the next
front post double crochet yarn over pull through those two post double crochets
and then double crochet like normal and from here continue to do the front and
back post double crochets regularly until you get to the other side and then
decrease twice again with one regular back post double crochet in the middle
so once we made our way back around with our second row of front and back post
double crochets or our third rows of double crochets all together because
remember we did our first row of double crochets as well then I’m going to stop
mine but you can keep going if you want but from here I’m just going to chain up
one so once we’re done with this now we’re gonna start working on the hooded
portion and this is where this part comes in because remember how we did the
rows of back loop single crochets this is where our hood is going to connect so
we’re gonna take our yarn make a slipknot we’re gonna figure out where
our middle loop is and we’re gonna insert our hook in through that middle
loop insert our Slipknot and we’re going to pull through chain up one two secure
and from here we’re going to be doing a row of single crochet in through these
loops that we have going all the way around now once when we get here we made
out all the way around we are not going to be connecting this because this is
gonna be a hood we need an opening for our face but once when we get here we’re
going to chain up one flip our work and then we’re gonna do more rows of just
single crochet into these loops so we have two rows of single crochet to start
off our hood and now we’re going to start doing some increases so from here
go ahead and chain one I already have mine and we’re going to do increases in
every tenth loop so we’re going to single crochet once into the next nine
loops and then do an increase in the tenth once we reached our nine single
crochet we’re going to do an increase in the tenth so go ahead and put two single
crochet into that same loop into that tenth loop and then single crochet once
into the next nine increase in the tenth and then keep going back and forth so
this is what I have so far for the hood I have rows one through seven and then
three through seven where our increases will be increased into the tenth loop
from one through seven I have two inches and then all the way around I have
about 29 inches and this is about as wide as I need my hood to be so from
here I’m going to be putting one single crochet into every loop that we have
until I get the height that I want so this is where I’m at so far I have a
bunch of rows of single crochets and from the base to the top I have 11
inches and I have 42 rows but this will be different for everyone depending on
what kind of yarn and hook you use but from here now I’m going to start
decreasing because my hood is almost finished so from here we’re going to
chain up one single crochet once into every loop until we get to the middle
and this has no number pattern so go ahead and just fold this in half and
then stop till we get about right here and inches away from the middle so once
my single crocheted all the way down now we’re going to do two sets of decreases
so in order to do our decrease we’re going to insert our hook into the first
loop yarn over pull through insert hook into the second loop yarn over pull
through yarn over pull through all three and from here I’m just going to do two
single crochet in between the two decreases so here’s two regular single
crochet and I’m going to do another decrease so one more time
insert our hook yarn over pull through insert our hook yarn over pull through
yarn over pull through all three and from here go ahead and single crochet
all the way back around once when you get to the end chain up one and then
single crochet back while doing two decreases in the middle and then keep
doing that until you get the full hood size that you would like so I just got
finished doing my rows of decrease and from the bottom to the top
I have 56 rows and I have 14 and a half inches and from here now we just need to
connect it so how we’re going to connect it is we’re going to grab these two
corners and from here we’re going to pinch this together and then we’re going
to go in through the hood and then grab the middle part and pull that through
and from here we’re just gonna flip the corners around and then we’re going to
single crochet once into every side that we have until we meet the corner so how
we’re gonna do that is insert our hook in through one corner and making sure
that it also goes in through the other corner and then we’re gonna pull that
through chain up one to secure and then now we’re going to be single crocheting
once into every loop that we have making sure that we go through both sides so
we’re gonna insert our hook in through the first side of the hood
and we’re also gonna find this same loop on the other side and insert it in
through there and from here we’re just going to single crochet making sure
we’re going through both loops and we’re gonna keep doing that and so we get to
the middle once we get to the middle go ahead and chain up one and cut so this
is our hood once when we’ve connected everything as you can see our seam is on
the inside and from here now we’re just going to do one row of single crochet
going around the border of the hood so we’re going to turn our work sideways
we’re gonna insert our hook in through the first loop that we have and that’s
gonna be the very first loop that we have attached our hood into and then
just single crochet once into every kind of loop all the way around and then
connect it to the other side with a slip stitch and the last thing that you have
to do is weaving in your ends and once when we’re done weaving in all the ends
