Fish Bone Halter Top

Don't you just love the centre design portion of this halter top? It reminds me of a fish bone! Just by looking at the top you might be thinking it looks rather complicated but I assure you that it's really quite easy.

crochet halter top pattern

Notes:

The top in this pattern is made to fit a size small/medium but if you want to make it bigger just make a chain long enough to reach from one side of ribs under breasts to the other side. Make sure this number is divisible by 2 then add 2 extra  chains.
