In the winter months the crochetpatterns we turn to are blankets, scarves, mittens, and warm winter sweaters. But in the summer months we look for simple patterns to make summer time clothing, lightweight patterns and summertank tops and sweaters.
Tanks tops can be crocheted in many different designs. One of the favorites and freecrochettanktoppatterns comes from CrochetPatterns for Dummies. The tanktop is made using a basic shell stitch lightweight yarn such as a fingering yarn.
Another favorite is the easy top and tank pattern to make for summer. If you prefer another style of tanktop to crochet take a look at the patterns below in order to make a summertop with or without sleeves. This is a beautiful project to make for yourself or someone that you want to make one for as a gift.
