At last, I present my crochet summer top. I really love this top as it has a lot of stretch in it, which makes it super comfortable to wear. And the open lace looks great over a contrasting or matching camisole.

I used Loops and Threads Woolike yarn, which is a super fine yarn. Thus, it takes forever to crochet this, but the end results are well worth it.

The pattern is for a tank/tube top, but you could easily continue for a cute summer dress if you wanted to.

Notes:

Be mindful of which rounds to turn at once you begin working on the main part of the body.

This tank top is designed for a tight fit. However, it’s a comfortable fit as garment has a lot of stretch in both directions.

You can adjust the bust circumference in multiples of 6. Bust height can easily be adjusted by doing more or less repeats of Rnd 2.

Adjust straps as needed before doing final edging around top.
