Haltered Neck Top For Young Girl

granny square bareback top pattern

Weather is hot here and just like summer of many countries, this crochet granny square top comes really handy to accustom ourselves in the heat wave season. This is the second project I did for my daughter this month after the Ruffle Flower Headband and the second haltered-neck top after the knitted version. May be I will sew another one for her for the next.

If you haven’t got the pattern and tutorial on how to crochet this colorful granny squares, click here!!!! Now, let’s see how we are going to put all the pieces of granny squares together to make this haltered neck top for a young girl.

Granny Square Haltered Top

This patching up method is using the last round of crochet to join, if you find it difficult to understand or troublesome to make, you can always crochet all the squares and half-squares then join them up by sewing them using tapestry needle, or, click here to find out other methods you could use.

If you want other sizes, change hook size and yarn accordingly to change the finishing size. Or, you can add a round or two to make the square bigger for adult size, it is all up to you provided you know how to modify the stitches and rows for the collar, armhole, end hem and back band.

  1. I love it! I wish I could croche! Do you have a pattern for the hat as well?

    • I bought this hat few years ago…. I can trace the pattern.
      Btw, I have another hat pattern coming soon, it looks so much prettier than this, please wait πŸ™‚

  2. Lovely! I’d love to make one for my daughter. May I know what kind of yarn you used?

    • It is a 100% cotton yarn as stated in the material above. I got them from a local store, the brand is Linie. You can use just any DK or light worsted yarn of your choice.

  3. Hola,precioso el top y excelente tutorial me encanta hacer cuadrados de crochet porque uso los restos de lana que me quedan.
    Muchas gracias.
    Buen fin de semana.

    Translation (by Google):
    Hello, beautiful and excellent tutorial on top I love to crochet squares because I use the scraps of yarn I have left.
    Thank you very much.
    Good weekend.

  4. You have a pair of great hands for doing crochet! Both the neck top and model look gorgeous!

    • @food-4tots, thanks πŸ™‚ You have been following me for quite sometime now, when are you going to start your first handmade for your son? I have a pattern coming soon for boy, please stay tuned πŸ™‚

  5. Wow, this is beautiful! Thanks so much for the wonderful pattern, I’ll be linking.

  6. Sreisaat is right. This is very cute.

  7. What a beautiful pattern! I really want to make this for my daughter, but i am having alot of trouble finding the right yarn. Seems like i can’t find that size cotton yarn in the right colors. I would really like to use the exact colors. I see you said in a comment before that the brand name is linie? I have searched it on the net, and cant seem to find it. Any suggestions?

    • I am sorry to hear that. I get most of my yarns (esp cotton) from my local shop. The one I bought could have been repacked and sell to local market only. May be you can try searching baby cotton since the yarn I am using is very suitable for infant.
      Should you need more assistant, please let me know.

  8. Great top! I’m actually making one right now for my daughter (yes, I know it’s winter, but I couldn’t resist).
    I have one question though. What do you mean by “to 8 in. fo”? It might be something obvious, but I’m from The Netherlands and I just can’t figure it out.

  9. I love this granny square top! Linking up at http://www.tangledhappy.blogspot.com next month. Thanks you for sharing this! πŸ™‚

  10. Hi, Love the pattern, so cute.
    I have finished all my pre-made squares but I’m having trouble joining them. It doesn’t make too much sense to me. Anyway you could post a video tutorial as to how you join them?
    I’d be very much appreciative πŸ™‚


    • Sarah, I don’t have video on this. Look at it this way, change the last round of chain stitch to sl st and slip stitch it to the adjacent square’s chain stitch.
      Hope this help.

  11. I just finished making this for my daughter, it is so cute! Thank you so much for posting the pattern.

  12. wow this top is beautiful, I so wish I could crochet.

  13. Hello! Can u please tell me what is knitting gauze? πŸ™‚

  15. I accidentally bought 4ply yarn rather than DK yarn for this project so I’m going to have to get creative when doing my squares so that they end up the finished size you have indicated – 2.5″ square. Anyway I’ll see how I go. If it is a disaster I’ll use the 4ply yarn for something else and try to hunt down some DK yarn.

  16. Thank you thank you thank you

  17. I love this summer top. I would make it for my neice on her 5th birthday. I have a facebook page on crochet items where I make n sell my items. When I make this first time for my niece, can I put up the picture of my make on my page and sell the item (not the pattern). I can also give the link of your blog

  18. I love this pattern and have started to make one for my daughter, but would like to ask if you need to block the premade squares before joining. Thanks for the fabulous pattern, I think my next poject will be your African flower bag!

  19. Thanks, am having fun joining them all up!

  20. I am joining the squares, but my joining seams are really untidy. They do not look as smooth and show the stitch like yours does, I have tried in the front loop or back loop only, but any where that needs a dc not just a slip stitch create a roll rather than a smooth seam. Am I missing a trick?

  21. I thinkI have solved the problem, I was slip stitching every dc and ss space, I have now done it only ss the ch except the 3dc at the corners. It looks better, am I right?

  22. Hi,
    This top is so cute. What size is the pattern?
