A tank top crocheted by soft cotton yarn, flattering and comfortable fit, more casual with wide shoulder strap. Cute and perfect for a workout xD
Materials: ( I used )
4mm crochet hook
Light weight/DK yarn: cotton ( 200 gr for the sample- size M/ 125 gr or 300 yds per skein )
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/row instead of ch3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc for every first dc of each round/row, so just choose your best technique 🙂
Special stitch used:
3dc- V stitch: ( 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc ) into same stitch
Skill level: Intermediate
Gauge: 10 double crochet stitches x 5 rows approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated ).
This crochet wide strap tank top pattern fits size M ( chest size: 32 to 34 inches )

R40: sc around the bottom border. (fasten off, weave in end)
Back part and shoulder straps:

Join the strap and front side with sc or sl stitch (fasten off, weave in end)
Repeat from R8 to R28 at other side to make the other shoulder strap.
Optional: playing with the ribbed texture xD (I used black glitter fingering yarn)
Simply crochet ( sc, ch 1 ) into every stitch around the ribbed lines. Dc around the last round ( fringe ).
