Light and breezy crochet tops will come in handy during the whole summer season. You can wear them in many different situations – formal or informal, they can be paired with various styles.

They are also easy and quick to make, so if you are a beginner, these projects are great for you to try. They are easily customizable, so you can fit them to your size. Choose the colors you feel best in, and be careful with picking up yarn – I recommend you use natural fibers because they are better for your skin, breathable and eco-friendly.
