Plush & Blush Crop Top – Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

Snuggle up in this soft and cozy crochet sweater.  The Plush & Blush Crop Top is a pleasure to wear and crochet.  The sweater is made by combining a strand of mohair with a soft fingering weight yarn.  The result is a light and fuzzy sweater that is simply heavenly.  The crochet pattern is worked in one piece so it’s perfect for beginners and includes a video tutorial.

Yarn Review

To get a soft and fuzzy halo to this crochet sweater I choose to work one strand of Aloft mohair yarn with one strand of Palette, a light-fingering weight yarn.  The effect is a soft and light crop top that is similar to using a DK weight yarn. These yarns together worked up beautifully and glided effortlessly with my odyssey crochet hook. I love working with mohair yarn but because it’s so fine I prefer to combine it with another yarn. It’s a great way to get that soft silky feel but work it up much quicker.
