This was a wonderful pattern to start my journey into wearables! The top-down allowed me to try the garment on as I went to get the fit that I wanted, which has always been a worry to me and why I hadn’t tried to make a top before. The pattern features a simple four row pattern making it ideal for a beginner. I will definitely be making this one again!

Pretty easy and beautiful result. I adjusted the bottom part a bit to make it a bit fitted and love the result. Thank you!

Montastraea - beautiful!

Bought this pattern to crochet a plain white shirt to wear with my multi-coloured knitted trousers at the beach in Greece this summer! Modified the pattern a bit to fit the crochet hook I had available (4mm) - went from a size Medium on the pattern as according to my body measurements to a size X-Small due to my hook being bigger than the one specified (3.75 mm). Just followed the X small pattern and got a beautiful fit to my shirt! I am so happy I found this pattern. This will be my first crocheted proper piece of clothing ever (I say proper, I really mean shirts and trousers). I am an experienced crocheted, have made endless toys, hat, and random bits and bobs of fancy designs, but decided it is finally time I crochet my own clothes! Thank you for making this pattern!

My first crochet tee

The pattern is clear and easy to adjust to my size. I used cotton yarn, turned out as a comfortable summer tee. Very nice.

I made this pattern in M with Oasis fingering yarn, and it turned out beautiful. The yarn drapes nicely, and feels soft and luxurious. I am now making it again in an XS for another person. Great instructions!

Montestraea crochet top
5 Stars

I am enjoying this pattern. There is just enough of a pattern to keep it interesting but yet it’s easy to do. I really like the top down, no seam and neck size. It’s nice to find a pattern that doesn’t have a huge neck opening. I am almost done with the yoke. This top is working up quickly for me. The only thing I hope to figure out is adding a little length to the sleeves but I think I can find a way since I have done a lot of crochet. The instructions are clear and very good. I appreciate the stitch count on the rows so I know I’m on the right track.

I've looked over the pattern and am just waiting for finding the right yarn in my stash! Planning on getting started on it soon though, will edit my review then, love the patterns that Expression Fiber Arts offers for free! Their yarn is absolutely beautiful and the patterns are amazing! Thanks!
