Learn how to crochet a tank top with these free crochet top patterns

In the winter months the crochet patterns 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 summer tank tops and sweaters.
Tanks tops can be crocheted in many different designs. One of the favorites and free crochet tank top patterns comes from Crochet Patterns for Dummies. The tank top is made using a basic shell stitch lightweight yarn such as a fingering yarn.
The sizes to make this free tank top are small, medium, large and extra-large but if you are experienced at crochet you can modify the pattern for smaller or larger sizes. The free pattern can be found on line at How to Crochet a Tank Top Pattern with a Shell Stitch here. While on the Web site you may also enjoy the free instructions on How to Crochet and The Essentials of Crocheting a Gauge Swatch.
Another favorite is the easy top and tank pattern to make for summer. If you prefer another style of tank top to crochet take a look at the patterns below in order to make a summer top 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.
