Nervous about crocheting to fit or looking for something easy to make and wear? This figure flattering top is as easy to make as it is to throw on. The sideways construction means there are only two rows to the pattern to master and the seamed (but no sew) construction means that you literally can’t get the fit wrong.
We’ve added fit suggestions for every body type.
