Body Of Crochet Crop Top
Add a stitch marker 18 stitches in from both ends.

Remained tied on to complete strap for this side. We will come back and finish the second side after.
Strap Row 1: HDC in the next 3 STs. CH 2 and turn.
Repeat Strap Row 1 a total of – S/M: 23 times | L/XL: 25 times –
Count (S: 15 STs |M: 18 STs |L: 23 STs |XL: 25 STs) away from where you stopped and turned on – S/M: Row 13 |L/XL: Row 17.
Attach the strap using slip stitches to the back of the top in that same ST and across the next 2 STs. Refer to the picture below for clarity.
Tie off and weave in ends.
Tie onto the other side of the top to finish second strap.
Next Row: FLOHDC in the next – S: 19 STs |M: 21 STs |L: 23 STs |XL: 25 STs – CH 2 and turn.
Next Row: HDC 2tog. Then FLOHDC across. CH 2 and turn.
Next Row: FLOHDC across. At the end of the row HDC2tog the last 2 stitches. CH 2 and turn.
Repeat the same steps you did for the straps on the other side of the top.
Finishing Touches (optional)
Tie on where the arrow points on the photo below. SC evenly along the edge stopping where the dotted line does in the photo, and CH 1
SC in each ST back up towards the arrow. Tie off.
Repeat the above steps on the other side of the top, but do not tie off.
Now you will want to create loops for your buttons. space your buttons evenly along the side now alternate between a few SC and CH spaces to create loops like the picture below.
For reference I did *3 SC, CH 3, SK 2 STs* all along my edge. If you want them more spaced out, try doing 4 or 5 SC between CH spaces. If you want them closer, only do 1 or 2 SC between CH spaces.
I used 8 buttons roughly 1 & 1/8″ in length. You may choose to add additional buttons depending on your spacing preference between buttons and to account for any additional length added. Almost any type of button will work in this top as long as it can slide between the spacing of chain spaces (or the HDC if you chose to skip the last optional step).
I wouldn’t go any larger than the 1 1/2” button size and no smaller than 3/4” to ensure your crochet crop top will be securely fastened (between 1/2″ and 3/4″ if you skipped the optional step)
Using a needle and thread, attach buttons evenly spaced along the side of your crochet crop top without loops. Make sure the right side is facing up when attaching the buttons. If you skipped the optional step, it doesn’t matter which side you attach the buttons on.
