A peplum is a short piece of fabric attached to a blouse that makes it frilly or flouncy. In ancient Greece, they used to call a tunic or a shawl a peplum. This peplum top crochet pattern blends those two ideas and gives you a flouncy, light, and free top perfect for summer or for layering into a multidimensional outfit.
Accessorize this adorable high neck with a statement necklace to really dress it up, or throw it on with some jeans for a casual, relaxed look. This boxy shirt is flattering for everyone, and we really loved adding the peplum details.
We think this will become one of your new favorite shirts. You might want to even make two, each a different color, so you won’t be guilty of wearing the same shirt twice. Work your double crochet stitch into this gorgeous top, and you’re ready to hit the streets in style.
This cute top is made with Cascade Avalon. This is the perfect yarn for your peplum because it’s soft, easy to care for, and has a slight sheen that really makes the texture of this peplum top pop.
Cascade Avalon is a worsted weight yarn, and gives this top a beautiful stitch definition while remaining breathable and soft.
It’s a blend of 50% cotton, 50% acrylic so it’s easy to care for and is machine wash and dryer safe. That means this garment is easy to keep clean without sacrificing softness.
