Has anyone figured out a crochet pattern for this one? I really wanted to try the knitting pattern, but I hate knitting in rib. I much prefer crochet, but am not experienced enough to write a pattern! Also, it would be good if this could be adapted for DK weight yarn, as its really hard to find single balls of aran (aran usuallys come in 400g balls which would be really expensive with the stripes!)
I would be very grateful for any advice!

I feel like I'm starting way too late, but I guess it doesn't matter. I've never made clothing.. unless you count scarves. I'm totally in.

knitwitUK this was posted earlier in the thread . Hope it helps you , I am still to have a go at it but will be using this as a guide . Sounds right . good luck

This is a pretty simple sweater!  Basically, crochet a chain that is long enough to run from your chest (above your "assets") to whatever length you'd like your sweater to be.  Then choose whatever stitch is your fave and crochet a huge rectangle, until the entire thing fits around you.  Then you sew up the back seam and you have a tube top!
To make the arms, you crochet a chain long enough to fit around your upper arm with ease.  Then using your fave stitch make a longer skinnier rectangle.  Seam both sides until it is a tube that's open in the middle.  Attatch that to your tube top,and you're done!!

Old thread, but... How much yarn did you end up using for this? I have done a couple patterns before but never just winged something. What kind/ weight of yarn did y'all end up using.?

Ditto on that. My LYS is clearancing some wicked merc. cotton, and I want to make sure I snag enough for this. Screw making socks for my brother, I need a cute top more. Tongue

Funny, the first time I saw this pattern I though how nicely it could translate into crochet!  My problem with crocheted clothing is finding a stitch/yarn combo that doesn't leave revealing holes...  Of course I could use sc but then the fabric gets so stiff.

Single crochet with a thin yarn? Maybe a size E hook? Would probably take a little longer, but wouldn't be as stiff, and would be good for chilly late spring, early summer days.

Anyone making a striped tubey? I've been thinking about it, and have been playing around with different swatches of stripes, trying to find a good colour combo...
you should try the stripes generator !
