A crochet tank top is something every crocheter needs in their wardrobe. It gives you confidence knowing you are going to be walking around looking unique. Who does not want that?
The crochet tank top promises you comfort while you look awesome in the streets. And, it does not call for too much materials. So you can use that stash you had left over from that previous crochet sweater project.

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.
