Simple Tank Tops
Here's a top I crocheted and I made it about a year ago ... I think. It's the first top I made and I thought a tank would be the simplest piece for me to work on. It's a simple stitch pattern - single crochet, ch 2, single crochet in next ch 2 space. That's it ... well pretty much. There isn't any shaping involved. Once I figured out the measurements I needed and the hook size I liked, it went together fairly quickly. I just did 3 rows of single crohet around the neck, arms and bottom to finish it. I used Lustersheen in white and a F crochet hook. That's probably a little bigger hook than normal for this yarn, but I liked to the look of the stitch pattern when I used this hook. I made another one in turquoise just to see if the tank would turn out ok again.
These two tanks gave me the confidence to go ahead and try to my hand at some designs. I'd like to try some shaping in a pattern sometime, but for now I'll be happy to make something that fits ok.
