Granny Tank Top

from Tracey Todhunter
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Granny Tank Top
Granny Tank Top
Granny Tank Top

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Trebles

Pattern Description:

A wardrobe essential, this cute slip over tank adds an extra layer over a t shirt. Designed to be roomy and easy to slip on and off. If you have mastered a basic granny square, you can make this garment.
About this pattern:
This is a versatile pattern, based on four basic granny squares.
I have given instructions for the granny square, neck edging and shell trim. At the end of the pattern you will also find links to online tutorials for a basic Granny Square which beginners might find helpful and some close up photos of the trim.
Yarn requirements
350m of sock yarn.
Sample photographed is made using 1 skein of Artesano Definition Sock Yarn
75% wool 25% polyamide; 100g / 400m; shade "Azure"
3mm crochet hook
Tapestry needle for sewing up and weaving in ends.
Rounds 1 - 4 of basic granny square should measure 7cm across.
The size of this tank top is easy to customise by working more / fewer rounds of the basic square. You can also add length by working more rounds of the trim. Made as described here, the tank top slips easily over a t shirt (shown here, Mothercare t shirt aged 24 - 36 months).
Finished body circumference is 56cm, arm hole measures 15cm deep and neck opening measures 15cm across. Length from back of neck is 32cm.
Designed to wear over a base layer and with plenty of growing room. This is a great extra layer for the independent toddler who can slip it on and off easily.
The pattern is written with the beginner in mind and is written in UK crochet terms.
There are no charts.
