Free Tank Top Crochet Pattern

Festival Tank Top – Free Crochet Pattern

It’s been ages since I last shared a free tank top crochet pattern on my website. A couple of summers back, I shared my first easy crochet tank top pattern, and it was a huge hit…. so I thought it was about time to create a new one for you!

This top, which I’ve named the Festival tank top is both cute, and easy to make. I designed it to have a simple one row repeat with minimal shaping to keep it simple. And to make things even easier, I have worked very hard to create a video tutorial. Click the link below to watch the tutorial, or scroll down -I’ve shared it on this page too with the pattern!

Choosing the Right Yarn

I designed this pattern using Paintbox Yarn Simply DK because I wanted to work with an affordable, low-maintenance yarn. Simply DK is one of my favorite acrylic yarns, not only for its budget-friendly price but also for its extensive selection of colors. I can envision this top in every shade of the rainbow, and with this yarn line, you’ll have that choice!

Assembly

Seam Panels Together:

Lay the two panels on top of each other, and seam at the sides using a whip stitch. The crochet stitch used for this top is reversible, so don’t worry about which sides are facing.

Add Straps:

Complete the steps below for each strap:

Step 1: Attach yarn with a slip stitch at the top corner of one panel.

Step 2: Chain 28, or 10 inches stretched (every body is different; it’s a good idea to try the top on at this point to see if you need to add more or less length to the strap before continuing).

Step 3: Attach the chain to top corner of facing panel with slip stitch.

Step 4: SC around arm hole (including into chains of strap) and join to first sc with slip stitch.

Step 5: SC again around arm hole and join to first sc with slip stitch.

Step 6: Fasten off.

Add Bottom Edging:

Attach yarn with a slip stitch at the bottom of one of the side seams.

Round 1: CH1, SC in the same stitch (this is the first SC of the round); SC around the bottom edge by working 1SC into each ch2sp and each (sc,ch2,sc) cluster; join to first sc of the round with slip stitch.

Note: The total number of stitches around = two thirds the foundation

chain times two (if you’re off by a couple of stitches don’t worry).

Example: Size Medium

Foundation Chain X 2 = 75 X 2 = 150

150 X 2/3 = approximately 100 single crochet stitches around.

Rounds 2-5: CH1, SC in same stitch; SC in each sc; join to first sc of the round with slip stitch.

Fasten off after round 5.
