WHAT IS IT
A crochet pattern for a tube top/bandeau top with a simple, textured stitch. The top edge has elastic so it holds the top in place and fits comfortably. This pattern uses chainless foundation – check out my video on how to make it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKdFydreBjY&t=2s
The pattern is very simple with no increase/decrease and you will also get a video showing how to insert the elastic.
Thank you to testers Elsy (elsyknitcrochet) – petroleum top and Parisa (crumbandcrochet) – striped top, for testing the pattern and for the photos!
