Crochet Children’s Top Pattern




  • Worsted weight yarn (in your preferred color)
  • Crochet hook (size appropriate for your yarn)
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle
  • Buttons or other closures (optional)

Size: This pattern is written for a children’s size, but you can easily adjust it by adding or subtracting stitches and rows to fit your desired size.

Instructions: Note: This pattern uses US crochet terminology.

Back Panel:

  1. Chain a multiple of 4 stitches plus 3 additional stitches (e.g., for a size 4-6, chain 27 stitches).
  2. Row 1: Double crochet in the 4th chain from the hook. Double crochet in each chain across the row. You should have (multiple of 4) + 1 double crochets at the end of this row.
  3. Row 2: Chain 3 (counts as the first double crochet), turn your work. Skip 1 stitch, double crochet in the next stitch, chain 1 Repeat this pattern across the row, ending with a double crochet in the last stitch.
  4. Repeat Row 2 until your back panel reaches the desired length (measure from the base of the neck to the desired hemline). Remember to end on an even-numbered row.

Front Panel: Follow the same instructions as the Back Panel until you reach the armholes.


  1. Once your front and back panels have reached the desired length, divide the stitches for the armholes. For example, if you chained 27 stitches for the Back Panel, divide it into 3 sections of 9 stitches each (left armhole, center, and right armhole).
  2. Working on one side at a time, chain 3 and continue the pattern from Row 2 for the specified number of stitches for the armhole (e.g., 9 stitches).
  3. Continue working the pattern across the center stitches (e.g., 9 stitches).
  4. Join a new ball of yarn and repeat Step 2 for the remaining armhole stitches.
  5. Continue working on each section separately, repeating the pattern for a few more rows until the armholes reach the desired depth.


  1. Join the front and back panels at the shoulders using slip stitches or a preferred joining method.
  2. Starting at the right shoulder, attach your yarn and work along the neckline. Single crochet evenly around the neckline, working 3 single crochets in the center front stitch. Slip stitch to the first single crochet to join.
  3. Repeat Round 2 for a few more rounds until the neckline has the desired width.
  4. Fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends.


  1. Optional: Add buttons or other closures to the back or shoulder area for ease of wearing.
  2. Weave in any remaining loose ends using a yarn needle.

And there you have it! You’ve completed a crochet children’s top. Customize it with different colors, stitch patterns, or embellishments to make it unique and special.
