The Diamond V Neck Top is such an amazingly easy pattern that will make you want to create my wearables. At least it does for me. This top is made out of 2 rectangles sewing together to create a V neck top where the rectangles feature the Diamond Lace Crochet Stitch for which I have a detailed Photo and Video Tutorial for.
This stunning Diamond V neck top crochet pattern is available in 4 types of sizes ranging from XS to 4XL. As it is made with worsted weighted yarn, you will actually not need many skeins in order to make this amazing V Neck Top.
Furthermore, the Diamond V Neck Top is made with only single crochet and double crochet stitches and can easily be made within 1-2 days.
As this crochet pattern was sponsored by LoveCrochet who provide me with yarn support for the Diamond V Neck Top, I have this pattern be available on their site as a premium pattern for download for a very low and affordable price. Also, the pattern is now available right here for free as well. Also, while you are on LoveCrochet, be sure to follow me so you can get updates and find me easily for new pattern publications.
You can easily change out the yarn to a different color, but I absolutely loved working with the Paintbox Yarns Simple Aran. It is so soft and works up very well using any type of crochet hook. I used my Furls Crochet Odyseey hook for it which I love so much.

Repeat rows 2 through 9 until you have 65 (69, 73, 77) rows.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Sewing and finishing up
Now fold the 2 rectangles in half.
Sew them together using the mattress stitch on each side about ¾ from the end to the middle, such that you are creating a big long hole in the middle of the entire piece.
Now lay the outside corners on top of each other such that 22 stitches are right on top of each other. Pin it so you can test whether that would work around your hips. If that does not work, overlay more or less depending on your comfort.
Now you are crocheting around the bottom of the top:
Start anywhere you like, but it is better to be on one of the sides where you laid over the corners.
Row 1: Ch 1, 1 sc in each stitch all around, making sure to include both stitches of the overlaying parts, sl st to the first st
Row 2 – 7 (9, 11, 13): Ch 1, 1 sc in the blo in each st, sl st to the first st.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Now you will sew the overlaying sides together until you create an arm opening. Sew either one (like I did) or both sides together using the mattress stitch about ¾ of the way up (same height as middle sewn area) to create arm holes.
Fasten off and weave in the ends. You are now done and can wear your Diamond V Neck Top. Enjoy
