I originally designed this Granny Square Tank for Happily Hooked Magazine, Issue 40 of July 2017, which featured Lightweight Designs.

Working with a yarn such as Modern Cotton DK, is an even better option for hot weather. I plan on ordering some to try out another tank more suitable for Florida.

  • H8/5mm Crochet Hook
  • #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends and Whipstitching

Woman’s XS (S, M, L, XL) To Fit Bust: 28”, 32”, 36”, 40”, 44” - More measurements given in pattern.
