I love this fun, funky, fring-y Crochet Boho Tank Top Pattern! It’s super cute layered with long necklaces over a sundress. Because of the cotton yarn, it would be perfect over a swim suit! It has a button closure on the back and I actually wore it backwards as a vest the other day.
Gotta love the granny square, right? There are endless styles and then even more endless beautiful things you can make with them. I made this cute boho style tank with some granny squares. Any granny square pattern would work. I wanted a pretty spring-y, flowery square.

BOHO TANK TOP CROCHET PATTERN
The pattern starts with making the granny squares (make 7)
ch 5, sl st to first ch to make a ring, work round 1 into ring
Round 1: ch 4, *dc, ch 1* repeat from * to * around 10 more times, join to first ch 3 with sl st (12 dc, 12 ch-1)

Fasten off. Weave in the ends.
To make the top larger, add an additional round or two to each square
Fasten off, weave in the ends.
Make 7 squares. I steam blocked my squares overnight before assembling them together.
Once you have 7 squares made, line them up like this:
Crochet them together by slip stitching the back loops together. Put first two squares together, right side facing out, insert hook through first back loops of both and slip stitch, continue following the arrows until it’s all one piece.
Turn your work so there are four squares across the top.
Join yarn to the right-most corner.
Round 1: sc in each stitch across to the next ch-3 space, sc in ch-3 space, work 20 fsc, sc in next ch-3 space in the next square (this is the first strap). Continue to sc in each stitch in the next valley to the next ch-3 space, sc in ch-3 space, work 20 fsc, sc in next ch-3 space in the next square (this is the next strap). Sc around in remaining stitches, join to first sc with sl st
Row 2: (this row is working only along the bottom to the opposite corner) ch 4, turn, skip 1 stitch, dc in next, *ch 1, skip 1 stitch, dc in next* repeat from * to * across to the opposite corner
Row 3: ch 1, turn, *sc in next ch-1 space, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next ch-1 space* repeat from * to * across
Fasten off. Weave in the ends.
Add fringe in each ch-2 space along the bottom. I used three 10” strands in each. Trim to your liking.
Add a button to one corner on the back. The opposite ch-space as the buttonhole.
And you’re done! I hope you love this stylish, boho style tank top.
