Emma Summer Tank Top

free crochet pattern, emma summer tank top

This is a free crochet pattern for Emma Summer Tank Top. Perfect for the summer, the light and airy design will surely complement your swimsuit or blouse.

There are a few instructions on how to make this tank top modified according to your size desired.

Make allowance for material expansion since this is cotton. The stitch used is 2 rows repeat and at the end of tank top instructions take into consideration the one inch stretch after washing.

This Emma Summer Tank Top is crocheted two panels separately then join together starting from the top, then continue working around up to the hem edging.

The stitch I used is multiple of 6 sts + 4 sts for turn.

Size available S/M, M/L, L/XL

I used the M/L size in the posted photo.

Flat measurements: Width - 18" x Height (including strap) 19.5"
