Spring is my favorite season to crochet for! I love to make lightweight crochet tops and layering pieces for the transitioning weather! This flounce sleeve crochet top has been on my to-do list for a while now and I’m so glad I finally made time to design it!

Pattern Inspiration

A crochet flounce sleeve top is something I’ve wanted to create for a while now. I just love the flowy, ruffled sleeves and I think it’s so cute and feminine and perfect for warm weather!

I decided to go with a top down, circular yoke workup style in one main stitch. It’s so simple to create and easy to customize too!

The flounce sleeves took a bit of thought, but I’m so glad I decided to go with a double layer. It’s very easy to create and looks so good!

Pattern Details

The Franny Flounce Sleeve crochet tee is made using DK (#3) weight yarn. I used Hobbii Acacia which is a acrylic/cotton blend in the colorway Rosewood. I really enjoyed working with this yarn. It is lightweight and very soft and feels great against my skin.

Some great alternative yarns for this project would be Lion Brand Coboo, WeCrochet Cotlin, or Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK.

This pattern is rated Intermediate in pattern difficulty. Some experience in crocheting clothing is helpful, but not necessary. It uses the simple extended half double crochet stitch throughout with some increases along the way. If you are an advanced beginner, I feel sure you can make this top!

The crochet top is worked from the top down as a circular yoke. There is no sewing required. Check out the video below for details on how to create a circular yoke and creating the armholes with it.

  1. I absolutely love this tee! My problem is joining in the back. I have tried the invisible join but must be doing something wrong as I can always spot it. I will need to try again. Love your designs!
