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!

  1. I purchased your pattern but I am having trouble adapting your directions as a left handed crocheter. The procedure for attaching the straps doesn't work as i am coming from the opposite direction. I have tried to modify but the straps are not coming out correctly.
  2. Good day, could I use the same cotton yarn as we do for dish clothes? Not sure what is #1 or #2 yarn. Would that be the yarn that comes in a ball?
  3. I physically can't work with the finer weight yarns. Before I spend my money and time, do you think it possible to modify for a 4 weight yarn? I want to try making a wearable and this does look relatively easy and it is a simple sort of lovely.
    1. In the Everyday Tank pattern for round 1 it says "Join to top of first st without twisting" - I am not sure how to do this. Is there a video of another pattern with something similar I can watch?
  4. Hi Ashlea. Ive just bought the patten, but could you please tell me how many balls a small would be. Im just learning crochet and still not able to work out that sort of stuff yet. Also can you please tell me the colour that used. I love it in the blue xxx
    1. Hi Lorraine! If you are using the Comfy Fingering yarn, then you will need 4 balls. (The small pattern uses 750 yards and each ball of yarn is 218 yards...so 750/218=3.4 balls) The blue I used is Celestial =)
  5. For the everyday tank top, I fall right in the middle between 2 sizes. Should I go up to the next size or down? Is the positive ease you mentioned built in to the pattern? Thank you, I love it!
    1. Hi Linda! The ease is built in to the pattern and the size chart is "up to" bust measurements. So, for example, if your bust is 40", the you would want to do the Large since it fits up to 42" where as the Medium fits up to 38". Does that help?
