80s Nautical-Theme Crochet Top – Free Pattern and CAL

This year, crochet is big for summer, but so is the nautical theme – red, navy and white has been showing up everywhere!

So I thought what better way to showcase my love for all things 80s than by crocheting this fab top in nautical cotton – Brown Sheep Cotton Fine in Wolverine Blue with Cotton-Ball as a contrast colour:

Crochet Top in 4 ply cotton

The pattern is from an old Patons Gem Cotton – 4 ply crochet book from the 80s.

I’ll be crocheting the main top in Brown Sheep Cotton Fine – Wolverine Blue:

with contrast stripes in ‘Cottonball’:

    Is it too late for me to join in on this CAL? If not, would you please forward me the pattern or its direct link as I am unable to locate/find it through the links. Then, I shall purchase from you the necessary yarn to complete it to suit myself, size 12-14 or nearest to my bust measurement.
    Thanking you
    Chrisella

  • Danielle:

    What other yarns could be substituted for the Patons Gem Cotton?

  • We use Brown Sheep Cotton Fine which is a 4-ply cotton/wool blend, but any 4-ply cotton will do.
