Ombre Crochet Tank Top

June 3, 2021

Are you ready for summer? I so am! This Ombre Crochet Tank Top is the perfect addition to my summer wardrobe. The top drapes nicely and has a gradual flare from the top to the bottom. Really, any color combination would work, but I’m really loving the ombre stripes this top has.

When I saw the Loops & Threads Color Wheel yarn so beautifully lined up in this color order at Michaels, I knew I had to make something with it. This yarn has since been discontinued. Some other great options would be Caron Cotton Cakes, Dishie from WeCrochet, or 24/7 Cotton from Lion Brand.

Pattern notes & stitches to know:

· written in US terms

· ch 2 does not count as dc

· This tank top is made with two panels (that are the same) sewn together. Then the straps are made with ch stitches.

· Gauge: 12 dc x 6 rows = 4” x 4”

Sizes:
S (M, L, XL)- The pattern is written in these sizes consecutively. Example, when the pattern gives the end of row count (31, (37, 43, 49) dc) the 31 is for S, 37 is M, 43 is L, 49 is XL.

This top is classic fit with no positive ease.

OMBRE TANK TOP 

FRONT & BACK (make 2)

ch 31 (37, 43, 49)

Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from the hook and in next 13 (16, 19, 22) stitches, 3 dc in next (place a sm in middle stitch), dc in remaining stitches (31, (37, 43, 49) dc)

Row 2 – Row 20 (20, 25, 25): ch 2, turn, dc in each stitch across to sm, 3 dc in stitch (place sm in middle stitch), dc in remaining stitches (each row will increase by 2 stitches. Change colors every 4 rows for S/M and 5 rows for L/XL)

Or until desired length. Fasten off.  Leave a long end for sewing. Weave in other ends.

Once you have 2 panels, lay them on top of each other. Sew both sides together up the side from the bottom with a slip stitch to row 12 (or wherever you’d like the armhole to start). Fasten off, weave in the ends. Turn top right side out so the seam is on the inside.

Attach the yarn for the strap to a top corner, ch 25 (or however long you’d like your straps to be) then attach it to the opposite side with a slip stitch. Fasten off, weave in the ends. Do the same for the other strap.

And that’s it! I hope you love this cute tank!

  1. Hello ?? going to make this and to figure out the color scheme I was wondering if you make this bottom up or from top down. So basically If I wanted to do a ombrรฉ like you did would I start with my lightest color if from the darkest color

  2. When I do the first 16 of DC of the 38 chains, my count is always off. 16, then 3, then 16 leaves me two chains at the end? What am I doing wrong?
