Ch 15(20,25,25,30,30,35) slst into the second ch from the hook in the  and all the way down, remember to slst in the back loops of the body.

We are now working the shoulder strap. Work 3(5,7,7,7,9,9) rows for the shoulder strap, this should leave you at the bottom of your work.

We are about to do the V- on the chest.

Place a st marker in the 10(15,20,20,25,25,30)th stitch from the top.

Begin your new rows but stop 2 stitches before the stitch marker, place a decrease in those two stitches bu working one hdc in the two stitches. Ch 1 and turn, work slst into the first 2 stitches to decrease the row.

Decrease for a total of 5(9,13,17,21,25,29) rows.

Work 3 normal rows to mark the middle section then increase a total of 5(9,13,17,21,25,29) rows, at the top of the last row, ch 10(15,20,20,25,25,30) plus one, and work  3(5,7,7,7,9,9) rows for the shoulder strap.

To finish off the crochet tank top, leave a stitch marker in the 15(20,25,25,30,30,35) th stitch. Work your way up leaving 2 stitches before the stitch marker.

Decrease for a total of 5(9,13,17,21,25,29) rows. Ch1 and cut the yarn.

We are 45% through with our crochet tank top, just repeat the same process to make another piece for the back.


Now that you are done, lay the right sides facing each other to seam the sides and the shoulder.

The right sides are the sides with the ribbed effect, the pretty side LOL.

 Seam the sides and shoulder closed with your needle.

Under the arm, place your yarn and go around the arm placing sc to clean up the arm holes.

Do the same thing for the neck. Work 2 rows of sc to make it neater.

Cut the yarn, weave in what’s not welcome and just like that, you have your crochet tank top all done and ready to be worn!!!

Wear it, you earned it.

  1. Wonderful! I once had a bright green sweater the color of fresh spring grass, and I loved that thing. I wore it as often as my mom would allow me to. One of your sweater pictures reminded me of that sweater I ended up having to say goodbye to — I’d worn it out so bad, there was nothing any of my family of crochet’ers could do to save it. (If I was a betting woman, I would think my mom had a secret hand in them ‘not being able to’ fix it. lol) Ahh well. Your sleeveless top is so pretty!
