WHAT IS IT?
A simple smocked top with ruffle edge and elastic thread inside to create a textured look. It also has elastic band in the top edge to hold the top in place.
The pattern is simple and good for beginners and has no inc- or decreases. It follows measurements so it can be made in any size and length. The pattern also contains a video link showing how to crochet with elastic.
