Mae’s Colorful Tank

For this project, I really had to step outside of my comfort zone with what I think I know about crochet.  Admittedly, I am not really big on creating a swatch to check gauge and I often stitch more open than the average hooker.  Since I know these things about myself, I knew that stitching clothing was going to be a challenge and I was prepared to be utterly frustrated by even the simplest of patterns.D's Halter

Instead, I was wonderfully surprised by the simplicity of this pattern.  Okay, it wasn’t that simple.  I didn’t know how to do the corner to corner or C2C stitch so there was that 10 or 15 minutes I took finding the YouTube video learning how to complete it for the pattern I had in hand.

I’m posting links to both the video and the pattern I used.  The top I worked up in under an hour…keep in mind I made it for Mae and she’s just a little thing, so it didn’t take much time or yarn.  Heck, I may have found a good scrap yarn project.

Give this pattern a try with whatever yarn you have on hand.  It’s a nice change from rows and rounds and both the video tutorial and the pattern are very user-friendly.  Happy Hooking!

 

Here’s the YouTube video to learn the stitch:
