Easy Single Crochet Halter Top Pattern
Designed by Sandi Marshall

This halter top is easy enough for a beginner to make yet it's great for experienced crocheters who want a quick project. It's a one-size-fits-most. Halter top size is adjusted by how tightly or loosely the ties are tied.

You may prefer the basic halter top, with no cross-stitch, as shown at left but, as another option, I sized this halter top so that you could cross-stitch my Manto Butterfly Design on the top, if you wanted to. To help you in positioning the butterfly on the halter top: the butterfly chart is 40 rows tall and 40 stitches wide. Find the center of the chart and the center of the halter top, then begin to cross-stitch from the center, working out to the sides.
I did an example of the Manto Butterfly cross-stitched as an outline, shown in the photo at left. I used worsted weight yarn to cross-stitch the butterfly and size 10 cotton crochet thread to make the antannae. Use the Filet Crochet Manto Butterfly Chart to cross-stitch as an outline or the Manto Butterfly Color Chart to cross-stitch this butterfly on in full color. The rest of my butterfly design series are the same size also. Lots of charts to choose from!
