Rheema Halter Top

This is a free crochet pattern for the Rheema Halter Top, easy crop top for this coming summer season.

Same as Girlie Crop Top, this can do multiple functions for everyone since it can serve as a crop top, a cover up for your swimsuit or even as an insert for the low neckline blouse that one cannot seem to wear because of the plunging neckline that shows too much. 

This Rheema Halter Top can fit most sizes from small-large, depending on bust size. For bust size D, this will be looking like a revealing style but still trendy (wink, wink). 

This crop top is secured using ties around the body and the neck.

Crocheted from top (neck) to bottom (under bust), then around to edging.

Finished measurement is 

Lower side from end to end is 26" (without the 2 strings)

Upper side from end to end is 5 "

Height from top to bottom is 7 1/2"
