How To Crochet Tube Tops
First, chain 104 stitches of a medium weight yarn using a basic size-K crochet hook. After that join the last stitch with the first stitch and chain three. To do this, begin wrapping the yarn from back-to-front around this crochet hook. Then carefully pull the hook to catch the strand with the wrapped yarn to put it back through this last stitch on to your hook, to create one chain. Continue doing this step 2 times and double crochet it in every stitch around. Lastly, join the last stitch with your very first stitch.
Chain three again and double crochet every stitch around to join them. Continue repeating this step right until your piece measures at 8 inches. Then switch it to a size-I hook to work in a crochet stitching for a total of 6 inches. Single crochet the following 16 stitches and chain twice, but make sure to skip the following two stitches. Single crochet the next 26 stitches to chain twice, then skip the following two stitches.
Make a chain that’s at least 29 inches long with a larger crochet hook. Then single crochet every other chain stitch to fasten it off to create one strap. Continue repeating this step until you reach the second strap. At this point, use a yarn needle so that you can attach the straps on to your top. You can make whatever crochet tops patterns you desire, but just make sure you don’t overuse different colors too much so that it doesn’t look too over the top on you.
