The Altavista Crochet Top is a stylish, versatile, handmade masterpiece. This enchanting top effortlessly complements skirts, shorts, or your most beloved jeans, adding a touch of elegance to any ensemble. I have designed this free crochet pattern to be beginner friendly and suitable for all levels of crocheters. Fashioned from breathable cotton yarn, this top ensures both comfort and a graceful fit.
