Knitting patterns are all over the app. The #crochettop hashtag has over 46.4 million views, and influencers as well as average users can be spotted on the app’s For You page (a stream of public videos curated by TikTok’s algorithm) emblazoned with the casual look in their videos. And while the design looks quite luxurious, it’s actually quite affordable to buy, especially on Amazon. Some customer-loved crochet tops start at $12 — and many of them are available for around $20 or less.
Like TikTok users, Amazon shoppers are big fans of this youthful and breezy summer style, as the tops’ knit design is breathable, making them ideal for extremely hot days. For example, this Uusollecy style is a flowy A-line camisole that has the typical flattering shape you’d expect from a baggy tank top, but its patchwork construction allows airflow, keeping you cool.
“I’ve bought a few of these and I’m very happy with how they look and feel on a hot day,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “To be worn with a skirt or shorts, [and] they dress up your look fabulously.”

This versatility is a major advantage for buyers. Most of the knit styles on Amazon come in relaxed fits that go well with shorts and pants, and there are also several pattern options and color choices to choose from. For example, this Tutorutor crochet top comes in several neutral colors that can match any bottom you have in mind. And in the colder months, they can easily be used as a first layer under cardigans and sweaters.
One reviewer went so far as to call this style of tank top “the perfect summer essential.” They continued, “I’ve worn it with dress pants and shorts and got compliments every time.”
