BUTTON DOWN TANK CROCHET PATTERN

Row 1: ch 2, starting in the 2nd ch from the hook, foundation sc 49, 54, 59, 64, 69, 74 (49, 54, 59, 64, 69, 74 sc)

This is the length of the top. Add or take out stitches as needed.

Row 2: ch 1, turn, esc in each stitch across (49, 54, 59, 64, 69, 74 esc)

Repeat row 2 to Row 118, 130, 142, 154, 166, 178 (49, 54, 59, 64, 69, 74 esc)

Before starting the next row, check that the top is the correct width. The width at this point should be the bust measurement.

The buttonholes are created in the next row

Row 119, 131, 143, 155, 167, 179: ch 1, turn, *esc in 4 stitches, ch 1, skip 1 stitch* repeat from * to * across

Row 120, 132, 144, 156, 168, 180: ch 1, turn, esc in each stitch and ch space across (49, 54, 59, 64, 69, 74 esc)

Do not fasten off

Now you will work across the long edge of the rectangle. This is where the ruffle along the top will be.

Row 1: ch 1, turn, sc in the end of the first row, ch 1, skip 1 row (this is an additional buttonhole), sc across working 1 sc in the end of each row across (120, 132, 144, 156, 168, 180 sc)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, *sc, sc2tog* repeat from * to * across

Row 3 – 5: ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across

Row 6: ch 2, turn, 2 dc in each stitch across

Row 7: ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across

Fasten off. Weave in the ends.

STRAPS (make 4)

ch 2, starting in the 2nd ch from the hook foundation sc 100

Fasten off. Leave a long end for sewing.

SEWING

Sew on the buttons the second row in, opposite the buttonholes.

Button the top closed.

Place where you want the straps to be. I placed mine about 4.5” in on each side.

Optional: secure with a stitch marker

Use the long ends to sew 2 straps in the front and 2 in the back. Sew to the inside of the top below where the ruffle starts.

And you’re finished with this cute tank top!
