The Abuela Tank is crocheted in timeless granny stitch. Made from a light and cool cotton, it’s worked in two parts (front and back) from the bottom up with the edgings added after seaming.

Instructions are given for one-color, however, multiple colors work beautifully (example in photo was made using Bombyx Silk from Treenway Silks - each color was hand-dyed by Treenway)
