This crochet tank uses multiple hook sizes and stitches for a unique look and fit! Perfect for a summer day, or as a layering piece in winter, this tank was created to be your go-to top with a bit of flowy, floaty positive ease. You’ve even got two choices for the bottom portion of the tank, allowing you to customize it to have more drape (but less coverage) or more coverage (but less drape).Even better? It’s flattering on all body types.

The Ulothrix Tank is constructed using Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton yarn. Alternative weight 4 cotton yarn works for this pattern as well, but it may not look exactly the same. Note that this yarn shrinks somewhat upon first washing, so the fit of your garment will change slightly when washed (recommended before first wear). If you want to use a non-cotton yarn that does not shrink, or if you are between sizes, consider sizing down.

Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL) (2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL)
Bust sizes: 30” (34”, 38”, 42”, 46”) (50”, 54”, 58”, 62”)
Ease: positive ease depends on the version you make and is measured in the non-mesh portion of the tank. For the version with higher coverage, approx. 10” of ease is built in on top of bust size (finished garment will measure ~10” larger than bust size in the non-mesh portion of the top). For the version with less coverage, approx 2” of ease is built in on top of bust size, but additional ease comes from the nature of the stitch itself.

Designer is 5’7” with 39” bust wearing the Medium in both versions (43” finished bust size in the higher coverage version, 38” finished bust size in the lower overage version with more ease provided by the stitch design).

This pattern is also available on Etsy.

The higher-coverage version of this pattern is now available as a kit from Lion Brand Yarn!
