Introduction

Adorable, lacy topped, tank. Perfect for the summer! Wear over a camisole or tank, or even your bathing suit.

The Seaside Tank is incredibly easy to make. It is constructed with two panels, front and back, which are then seemed together. This top is designed with 2” of ease so it is fitted but not tight. I recommend using natural fibers, specifically bamboo, cotton, silk or a blend of either listed, so that it is nice and cool to wear. You can also use acrylic, though it will be slightly on the warmer side.

Gauge

Gauge
Measure in pattern or make a 7” x 7” swatch to test- do not include edges when measuring-
20sts and 11 rows = 6”
Alternately you can make a 5” x 5” swatch and measure gauge in 4” however it will not be quite as accurate- 13sts and 7 rows = 4″

Notes

Notes
• Ch3 is considered first dc. Next dc will be placed in the second st. Alternately you can do a chainless starting double crochet instead of a Ch3 for all rows up until 32. TutorialHERE
• Last st will be placed in the Ch3 (or chainless dc) from previous row
• You can make this tank in three colors or two. If you choose only two please ignore the first color change (change to CB, Row 20). Change color at second color change only (change to CC, Row 32)
