With sunny days are officially here, let’s add some bright and lively colors of Spring and Summer by crocheting a striped tank top. The simplicity of the stitches used in this pattern make it an easy crochet garment for most crocheters.
Materials: ( I used )
3.5 mm crochet hook
Light weight/ DK yarn: cyan blue and hot pink ( 200 gr for the sample )
If you don’t crochet, you can buy this top on my Etsy shop
Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each round, so just choose your best technique 🙂
This crochet pink striped tank top pattern fits size S and M ( chest size: 30 to 34 inches )
Gauge: cluster of crochet stitches ( dc, ch1, skip 1 st ) x 6 times approximately 2 inches after steam blocking ( with materials indicated )
Top: work in rounds
Start with color A yarn,
R1: Ch 180, sl into 1st ch to form round, ( dc, ch1, skip 1 ch ) x 90 times, repeat around. Sl into 1st to join.
R2: ( dc, ch1, skip 1 st ) x 90 times, repeat around. Sl into 1st to join.
R3: same as R2
R4: change to color B yarn, ( sc, ch1, skip 1 st ) x 90 times, repeat around. Sl into 1st to join.
R5: change to A color yarn, ( dc, ch1, skip 1 st ) x 90 times, repeat around. Sl into 1st to join.
R6: ( dc, ch1, skip 1 st ) x 90 times, repeat around. Sl into 1st to join.
R7: same as R6
R8: change to color B yarn, ( sc, ch1, skip 1 st ) x 90 times, repeat around. Sl into 1st to join.
Repeat from ( R5 to R8 ) x 16 times, untill you reach R64.
Shoulder straps: ( make 2 ) using color A yarn.
R1: from the last st of R64, skip the cluster of stitches ( sc, ch1, skip 1 st ) x 10 times. Insert hook into next st, ( dc, ch1, skip 1 st ) x 3 times, dc into next st.
R2: turn, ( dc, ch1, skip 1 st ) x 3 times, dc into last st.
R3 to R32: same as R2 ( fasten off, leave long end for seaming )
Repeat at other side to make the other shoulder strap. Seam to the front with sc. ( fasten off, weave in ends )
Back part: using color B yarn. Choose six points at the back, crochet 3 chains ( 32 ch ) across as following pictures.
Tie a knot at the middle to make a bow. Steam block your finished project.
