Just Peachy Tank

Guys! I am so excited to finally be releasing the just peachy tank! It took me quite a few tries to get this beauty just right, but I finally got it to exactly the way I wanted it (which almost never happens).

This tank is so super easy and it works up pretty quickly! I wanted mine to be closer to a crop top so I could wear it with my high-waisted shorts but if you want yours to be a little longer, just chain more in your starting chain. This will not change anything in the pattern except the st count at the end of each row and the count when you do your sc increase and decrease. So, if you add 5 sts to your starting ch, then your st count should be 5 more than the one I have listed.

So, lets get started!

Materials:

5.0 mm crochet hook

3.0 mm crochet hook (for the straps)

1 skein of Baby Bee Sweet Delight in bashful (I didn’t even use the whole skein)

yarn needle

scissors

for my fringe, I used a standard envelope because I thought it would be perfect for the length of my fringe.

Notes:

The tank I made is a small. It measures 13.5″ in length from the highest point of the tank to the bottom (before the fringe)

This tank does have a good amount of stretch to it. I did the sizings according to the way I have listed below, but since everyone is different as far as measurements go, please check as you go to make sure this tank will fit according to your specific size! If you need help with adjustments, please feel free to contact me by going to the contact me section or by commenting.

When doing your sc row, you will be working into the back loops only! This gives the tank the ribbing.

Gauge:

15 sts in pattern for 13 rows is 4″

Size:

S- 32″-34″ bust. 13.5″ long

M- 36″ bust. 14.5″ long

L- 38″ bust. 15.5″ long

Please check to make sure this is the length you want per your size by measuring from where you want your top to come up to down to where you would like it to end (before the fringe) and adjust accordingly! Again, if you need help with this part, please feel free to contact me! I am always here to help!

Turning the shirt inside out, line up your end and seam them together, making sure your sts line up with the other ends coordinating st, now you should have a tube top type piece.

Turn your shirt right side out and attach your yarn to the st on the left of your seam and do 1 sc in the top of each row along the top of the shirt. sl st to your first sc and finish off.

Strap

Make 2

using your 3.0 mm crochet hook, ch 86

hdc into each ch st and finish off. (85)

to add the straps, I connected them 3 inches from both sides of the seam and then criss-crossed them and attached the front of the straps to the far corner of the highest point of the tank. be sure to not get the straps twisted here.

Fringe

I took my envelope (one I had gotten in the mail that day, with the mail still in it so it wouldn’t fold up as easily) and held my yarn right at the bottom of my envelope. then I wrapped the yarn around the envelope several times and then cut all the pieces of yarn at the bottom of my envelope.

I took 2 pieces together and attached them at the bottom of each row.
