Best 7 Patterns for Crochet Tops

Sharing is caring!

Crouchet Foundry Fall issue brings you the best 7 patterns for crochet tops from admired designers. I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with a talented group of designers in this magazine. Emily from Hooked Hazel, Amber from Divine Debris, Pam from Sincerely Pam, Briana from Briana K Designs, Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet and Katy from KT and the Squid.

The fall issue came together with a lot of love and several cups of coffee! We wanted to add a little something special to this magazine and share more of us with you. On each design, a favourite coffee recipe is included from each designer. Just like you, we have our favourites. What makes us stand out is our celebration of being unique and bringing various personalities and crochet patterns into one beautiful space.

“But even a bad cup of coffee is better than no coffee at all”

Crochet Hooks and Yarn

This issue is full of the best crochet top patterns and is all about you and your inspiration to pick up a hook and yarn. Our goal is not only to inspire but to guide. We have added a yarn substitute guide with price options. These options will give you the right tools for your budget and style.

Crochet Foundry Fall magazine would not have come together without the help of our sponsors WeCrochet and Furls Crochet. WeCrochet provided us with the beautiful yarn used to crochet these gorgeous crochet tops, and Furls Crochet provided the gorgeous wooden crochet hooks.

Double Espresso Duster Cardigan

I designed the Double Espresso Duster Cardigan as my crochet top for women in the magazine, shown in 2X. For this magazine, we not only wanted to give you regular and crochet plus size patterns; we also wanted our patterns for crochet tops modelled on different sizes. For the Fall issue, we were lucky to have a small, large and 3X plus-size model. I love how great our crochet plus size cardigan looks on our model!

The Double Espresso Duster Cardigan is just one of 7 size-inclusive crochet top patterns you’ll find in this eMagazine.

I was so in love with this crochet sweater pattern’s elegance. I had to make another one in small. What I love most about this long duster cardigan is how slimming it is. Not to mention how comfy, cozy and warm it is too. Styled just right, it will give the illusion of a long, lean body.

Also, I love to wear a crochet duster cardigan as a jacket substitute in the Fall. It’s a powerful statement piece, and the crochet cables add class, structure and elegance to this crochet pattern for modern women.

The Macchiato Sweater is worked as a yoke sweater in one piece from the top down. The puff stitch rows in the yoke add a soft wreath like detail. The stitches are reminiscent of the puffy cream in coffee a barista turns into
