The Sippin’ On Summer Tank is a beginner garment crochet pattern. It is worked in the round until mid-chest, and then the straps are crocheted onto the body in four parts. The straps are seamed together on top of the shoulders. For a final touch, a scallop edging is crocheted onto the bottom of the body. The featured stitch is the Moss Stitch to give this garment a woven appearance, and remain lightweight for hot summer days.
