@ml1966 3764631, This project is only for the tie-dye and does not include any crochet instructions. You must already have a top with texture, crochet or interesting design at the top, as instructed in the materials list. Here is a link to some great crochet top patterns from our sister site, AllFreeCrochet: --Editor of FaveCrafts

Where do I find the pattern for the crochet around the top???
