This Tunisian Crochet Tank Top pattern has been in the works for quite a while. I am SO happy to get it out into the world and onto your hook! I’m calling it the “Tunisian Sunrise Tank” because of how gorgeous these colors are when worked together. It reminds of a beautiful sunrise and I just love the way that makes me feel.

If you have never worked Tunisian crochet before, or you have but not in the round using a double ended hook, this is the perfect beginner-friendly pattern to hit the ground running. For the main portion of this pattern we are using the Tunisian Knit Stitch. In my Tunisian in the Round video tutorial we are using this exact stitch! Watch that video to get your feet wet.

For more practice on Tunisian Crochet in the round, you could practice using the Tunisian “Smock it to Me” set which includes a beanie, mittens, a cowl, and an infinity scarf. Practice with those smaller patterns, then jump in to make the tank. To be honest this tank top may be even easier than the set. It really is a very simple, beginner-friendly Tunisian wearable pattern.

Because this pattern is worked in the round, you will need a double-ended Tunisian crochet hook. For this we are using a 4.5mm hook, and you can get a whole set of them in different sizes here.

For the main image (the colorful tank) I used the gorgeous Stroll Gradient yarn (discontinued) in the “Camper Van” colorway. For the size XS, S, and M you would need ONLY two cakes! I love that!

For the L, XL and 2XL you would need to purchase at least 3 to get the colors to lay how mine are here, and 4 balls would be more than enough.

I also love the “Vintage Tee Gradient” (discontinued) colorway shown below. I may have to design a different pattern using Tunisian in the round to showcase the gorgeousness that is this yarn. LOVE IT!

For the second tank pictured I used Lion Brand TruBoo. This is a bamboo blend that is heavier than the Stroll Gradient and has such a great sheen to it. It is so soft next to the skin. Note that the yarn label marks TruBoo as a 3 weight, but I was able to meet gauge just fine using the same 4.5mm hook.

(XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL) fits up to (30”, 34”, 38”, 42”, 46”, 50”) bust.

Note that I do have sizes 3XL and 4XL written but I did not include them in the final PDF because they have not yet been tested. If you would like to test either of those sizes, I’d be happy to send you the pattern as long as you are willing to provide feedback when you’re finished so that I can update the pattern for everyone else as well.

Grab this pattern on Ravelry, Etsy, or right here in the Heart Hook Home blog shop! Thank you!

  1. I've never done the Tunisian crochet before and I'm excited to try it out! Also I'm an size XL if you need any product testers. I just recently found your page and love it. You are amazing and I love the way you explain things for newbies like myself
    1. Hi Sharon! I am always looking for new testers! Here is the link to the application: https://hearthookhome.com/be-a-heart-hook-home-pattern-tester/
  2. I’m interested in the 3XL pattern. Should I email you to get the pattern? Just learning Tunisian crochet so it may take me awhile.
  3. Love this pattern!!!!! I've knit and of course crocheted in the round but never crocheted with a Tunisian hook . Look forward to trying your awesome pattern after I get a feel for something new! Thanks Ashlea!
    1. Hi Kathy! Any length would technically work...the longer the hook, the more stitches you can cram on. But I think 14" would be a good length.
