Are you ready for summer? I so am! This Ombre Crochet Tank Top is the perfect addition to my summer wardrobe. 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. After a few attempts and some frogging, this adorable tank top was born! 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.

OMBRE TANK TOP 

Front and Back Panel (make 2)

Pattern written in S, M noted in ( ), L noted in [ ], XL noted in { }

Ch 32 (38) [44] {50]

Row 1: dc in 4th chain from the hook, dc in first 13 (16) [19] {22} chains, 3 dc in next, dc in last 14 (16) [20] {23} stitches (31 (37) [43] {49})

Row 2 – 20 (20) [25] {25}: Ch 3, turn, dc in each stitch across to the center, 3 dc in the center stitch (this will give the “v” look down the center), dc in each stitch across the rest of the row. Each row will increase by 2 stitches.

I changed color every 4 rows for S/M and 5 rows for L/XL

Fasten off, weave in the 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!
