The idea behind the top started when I wanted a new top for my summer vacation. Hence The Alba top is versatile oversized top that’s great bringing in the luggage. The top is the perfect top to throw over your bikini on your way to the beach. I’m also dreaming of using it in the time between summer & autumn. When it’s a little too warm for sweaters, but to cold for just a top or t-shirt. During that period I will use it as a sweater top. In addition, if you change up the styling, it’s going to be great for a summer party as well.  With this top crochet pattern there’s really endless possibilities.Alba top crochet pattern

The crochet pattern has skill level Easy. If it hadn’t been for the details in this pattern, I’d even say it would be a make for a beginner. The details is made with the stripes on both sides & with the pattern in the back. In addition it’s not a complicated construction with just the two parts.

The sizing on this top is oversized & ranging from XS-XL. It’s really up to you how big you’d like it. To make a more fitted top, you can just make a smaller size. This makes the design quite versatile. Alba top crochet pattern

The top could also be used as a tunic or even made as a dress. You can change the design and make a dress with adding just a few rows. It’s important to consider that the top actually stretches & lengthens slightly when you wear it. That means that the top might seem shorter & wider while you crochet it.

I’ve added a few more pictures to let you get the feel of how the design looks like.
