Nine joyful crocheted croptops

Three groups of three

Here’s a series of crop tops, bikinis and bralettes I have crocheted over the last six months while developing patterns and testing designs.

All the tops are based on notes from practical tests and notes from the wearers of past creations – they have stomped in mosh pits, relaxed into long yoga sessions, stayed up late at night to dance in forests and fields…and then come back to me with notes about straps and cups and tassels ❤️ I love feedback and hopefully I have taken it all on board for this set.

Looking back and thinking about where I was when these different crocheted tops were created is also a very powerful feeling!

All art is just another way of keeping a diary.

At the time of writing, most of these are still available to purchase from Depop. I can ship internationally, and I post regularly!

Every cent made supports an independent artist starting up and goes towards studio (and wool storage) fees, site fees, and of course, sustainably sourcing materials. There is no words to express how much I appreciate and treasure everyone that has supported so far!

And now, with spring knocking on winter’s door I am excited to see what the growing season’s inspiration will bring me in way of woolcraft ❤️
