The Everyday Tank is just that; a tank to wear every day, no matter where you’re going or what you’re doing. This tank top is the perfect top to wear on a warm summer day. Available in sizes XS – 5XL, this size inclusive crochet pattern is quick to work up and fun to make.
The Everyday Tank Crochet Pattern
I have been itching to design a simple v-neck style tank top and I am so happy with how this turned out. What I love most about this tank top pattern is that you do not have to wear an additional tank top underneath. It’s too hot for that!
This pattern is worked in a simple tube, and we add the straps at the end. The v-neck style is the same on both the front and the back. Once you do one strap, the rest will be easy peasy!
To create this tank top we are using the Lemon Peel stitch. This is a great stitch to offer full coverage and texture and is made using only single crochet and double crochet. See a full tutorial for this lovely stitch here. There is also zero shaping to this tank top, with no decreasing or increasing, apart from the shaping on the straps.
We are using Comfy Fingering yarn for this pattern, a lovely, 75% Pima Cotton, 25% Acrylic, size 1 yarn that is great for garments such as these. You could also use a size 2 yarn, which would be heavier and more dense. The slightly larger yarn would also provide even additional coverage (although you shouldn’t need it. In all of these photos I am not wearing a tank top underneath).

This tank is meant to be worn with just a little bit of positive ease. I wanted this tank to have a bit of extra room so that it can hang and drape nicely, but not so much that it feels baggy. I also love how the tank is made with practically ZERO seaming, except for the few stitches at the top of the straps. See how nice and practically invisible the join is along the back? Love!
I do hope that you love this crochet pattern, and that you will make many of them using this simple crochet pattern. When you make one, please share a photo of it with me by tagging @HeartHookHome across all social media and on the Heart Hook Home Crochet Community on Facebook!
