Knitting Pattern in English for a Fitted Crop Top with decorative i-Cord-bows, ruffles and a V neck in sizes XS | S | M (L | XL | 2XL) 3XL | 4XL | 5XL.


The crop top is worked top down in one piece in stockinette stitch. The yoke is shaped with raglan increases and additional increases along the front parts to shape the V neck. As soon as the sleeves are separated from the body, the body is finished in rows without any increases. The body stitches are bound off with an i-Cord-edging. Afterwards, stitches are picked up again along the i-Cord-edging – preferably with a contrasting yarn quality, e. g. “Tilia” by Filcolana – and the ruffled border is worked for a few rows. Then, the resting sleeve stitches are picked up and the sleeves are worked in stockinette stitch in the round, before they are finished with an i-Cord-edging and the same ruffle border in a contrasting yarn quality like the body hem has been finished before.

Afterwards, stitches are picked up along the front parts and the neckline of the V neck and an applied i-Cord-edging is added for a neat finish. Finally, short i-Cord-ties are worked along the front parts to close the top with small, decorative bows. Of course, you are welcome to use buttons instead if you prefer to.

The fit of the top is close to the bust circumference and thanks to the straight cut, it’s quite loose around the waist – perfect for summer and the hotter days of the year! The romantic details like the i-Cord-bows and the ruffled border along the body hem and the sleeves create a unique, feminine and elegant look. Because of the cropped length, it’s the perfect companion for high waisted shorts or skirts during summer!
