A fun, flirty piece, the heartstrings top was born out of my desire to make the perfect fitting basic tank top with a few elements that elevate it from being "too basic." The possibilities for fit and color adjustment are endless! I'd love to see a super cropped version, a dress version, a scrap yarn version, maybe a super chunky version, etc. Truly, the sky is the limit with this design. Like all of my patterns, this top is made-to-measure, meaning that you can ensure the perfect fit. Along with the purchase of the pattern, you will also be able to download a Tester Lookbook to find color inspiration, fit inspiration, and a guide to which yarns in which colors my testers used.

This simple pattern is well suited for anyone from a confident beginner to a more advanced crocheter.

2 hooks: 1 bigger hook for the panels and 1 hook (1.0mm smaller) for the ties & hearts.
2 stitch markers (or something you can mark with, scrap yarn works fine!)
Darning needle
200 grams- 800 grams worsted or fingering weight baby alpaca yarn: I used this yarn ( in Red Velvet Melange with 5.5mm and 4.5mm hooks.
