Gague:

• To have a perfectly fitting crop top, first take your bust measurement (mine is 96cm/38”) and divide that number by 4 (28cm/9.5” in my case)
• Each granny square should measure 28cm/9.5” diagonally (in my case, adapt the value to your measurements)

Tassels, joining granny squares, magic circle

Sizes :

EU36-EU44

Abbreviations :

Chain (ch)
Slip stitch (sl st)
Single crochet (sc)
Half double crochet (hdc)
Double crochet (dc)
Treble crochet (tr)
Flip your project: if working on right side, switch to wrong side and vice versa, this prevents
the granny square from twisting
