Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight cotton yarn in your chosen color(s)
  • Appropriate crochet hook size for your yarn (usually a G or H hook)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle
  • Stitch markers (optional)


  • ch: chain
  • dc: double crochet
  • sc: single crochet
  • hdc: half double crochet
  • sl st: slip stitch


Note: This pattern is written for a small/medium size. Adjust the number of stitches and rows to fit your measurements.

Front Panel:

  1. Start by making a foundation chain of 60 chains (adjust for desired width).
  2. Row 1: In the 3rd chain from the hook, work 1 dc. Work 1 dc in each chain across. Turn.
  3. Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as first hdc), skip 1 st, hdc in next st, hdc in skipped st across. Turn.
  4. Repeat Row 2 until your front panel measures your desired length from under the bust to the top (usually around 7-8 inches).

Back Panel:

  1. Repeat the instructions for the Front Panel until your Back Panel matches the length of the Front Panel.

Connecting Panels:

  1. Lay the Front and Back Panels together with the right sides facing each other.
  2. Use slip stitches to connect the panels along the sides, leaving openings for armholes (usually around 6-8 inches from the top).
  3. Once the sides are connected, fasten off and weave in any loose ends.

Neck Ties:

  1. From the top corners of the Front Panel, attach the yarn and chain a length that feels comfortable around your neck (usually around 50-60 chains).
  2. Repeat on the Back Panel.

Finishing Touches:

  1. Weave in any remaining loose ends.
  2. Optionally, add decorative touches such as tassels, beads, or additional stitches along the edges.
