Popping up in pictures all over Instagram, knitted crop tops are quickly becoming a year-round wardrobe staple. Paired with high-waisted skinny jeans, layered over a dress, or worn with a skirt, the short shape compliments a variety of outfits and body types. While we think that the Soldotna Crop will be the sweater of Summer 2019, we have found four other cropped tops that we believe are strong contenders for Wear-It-All-The-Time-Because-It’s-My-Favorite status.

Lace Top by Sublime Yarns

A DK weight top that looks light as air, Lace Top by Sublime Yarns is a stunning layering piece that can be worn with a casual pair of jeans or over a dress for a night out. The top is knit in one piece, from sleeve tip to sleeve tip and features a striped lace pattern, which makes it interesting to knit and just airy enough to wear this Summer. Lace Top is written to accommodate six adult sizes and calls for 952-994 yards of DK weight yarn.

Hassel Pullover by Woolfolk Design Team

Worked from the bottom up with cool, cabled raglan detail, Hassel has a cropped and boxy fit that is flattering on many different body types. Knit with Super Bulky yarn, the comfy, yet polished turtleneck sweater is available in 6 sizes. A quick knit, we suggest adding this to your project queue ASAP because we have a feeling you will want one in every color before next winter.

Ursa by Jacqueline Cieslak

It might not be Bulky sweater weather, but this design has us wanting to cast on anyway. From Jaqueline Cieslak is Ursa, a cropped sweater that features a flattering v-neck, long, cozy sleeves, and interesting ribbed detail on front and back. Knit in Bulky weight yarn with a size 11.5 needle, this sweater is a quick knit no matter which of the 10 adult sizes you choose to knit.

Soundwave by Faye Kennington

With its cropped length and stranded colorwork yoke, this sweater is trendy times two. Soundwave is worked top down and in the round and has a colorful yoke and contrasting neckline, cuff, and waist detailing. While the sample is knit with 3 colors, the designer encourages you to work with as many as you would like to make this sweater uniquely yours. Designed with Fingering Weight yarn this top is one that you can start wearing this summer…or as soon as you cast off.
