Well, hoping you're having a good day so far everyone.
I would just like to introduce my problem of trying to find a shirt pattern for a summer top I would like to crochet. I was wondering if anyone could help me find a free pattern similar to the link below. Or up top.
Or wherever it is.

You're welcome thechibi.18! Not to pressure you, but I'll be definitely awaiting the photos of your creation. I haven't tried doing this one myself so I'll just content myself with the photos you'll come up with :)

does anyone know what the "yoke " is for the shirt pattern?

Look at a man's dress shirt from the back. At the top of a shirt is a long section or piece of fabric that the collar is attached to. This is usually a double piece so that there is no exposed seams. The bottom of the shirt is sewn between these two pieces and the collar is fitted inside as well to hid raw seams. This is the best way i know to describe this to you. Some western style shirts also have an extension of the yoke in front. This is usually a separate piece of fabric that gives the shirt a more western flair. Sometimes a contrasting cording is sewn in between to add decoration or to make the shirt more distinctive.
