Written Instructions

Notes:

ch 3 = 1 dc st

For all sizes start with main colored yarn (lilac) and 6.0mm crochet hook, ch 30.

If you want the length longer then add on as many more chain stitches you like at this point.

Row 1: 1 dc into 4th ch from hk, 1 dc into each ch st across to the end, turn. (28 sts)

Row 2: ch 3, 1 dc into each st across to the end; making last dc into top of tch, turn.

Rep Row 2 until your work measures the required bust width – 60 (62,64) cms.

Finish off.

To Make up

Fold the top in half with WS facing out, whip stitch both sides together and weave yarn tails in with a yarn needle.

Straps

With the end threads of the other 2 different colored balls of yarn held together and 5.5mm crochet hook, ch 200, finish off.

Trim end threads so you have about 15cm of length left on. This gives a skinny tassel look.

Weave draw string through the loops (the spaces made from the ch 3 turning chain) on the top of the crochet tube top starting by threading ends of draw string through loops on each side of the back seam. Weave the ends in and out of the loops until you reach the front of the tube top. Tie a bow at the front.

Sew buttons on.

  1. Hey Paula,

    I grew up a couple of decades earlier than you, and would you be surprised to learn that we wore “boob tubes” too? And that was the “burn your bra” era – so these were extremely popular.

    Love the pattern. Quick and easy. I’m a bit past the age where I’d consider wearing one (Do you know what time, childbearing and breastfeeding does to your ability to run around without firm support?) But my daughters would like them. Plenty of time to do a few for them before summer.

    Thanks Paula, keep those great crochet ideas coming.

    Regards,

    Diana

      Hi Diana,

      Glad to hear that you had the boob tube to save you in the ‘burn your bra’ era! At least you had something to cover you up. :-)

      Yes, this is a quick and easy pattern which I try to apply to all my works so that others enjoy making them.

      I’m sure your daughters would love one! I have just wrapped up one and sent it off to my niece for her birthday.

      Thanks for dropping by, Diana.

      All the best,
      Paula
