Pattern of the Week: Vintage Pink Tank
If you’re anything like me, you are ready for summer. No more of this hot-one-day/ cold-the-next craziness—bring on the sun! Along with this desire to see the sun comes with a need to crochet something to celebrate the season. Fortunately for me, Interweave Crochet Summer 2019 has lots of options that will help me celebrate in style.
Unfortunately, there’s just not enough time to work all the projects that have caught my eye, so I’ll have to settle for the one that I like the best. That project is (drum roll, please) the Vintage Pink Tank by Lana Jois. Worked in a DK-weight cotton (affiliate link) with a diagonal mesh pattern, this project is perfect for both summer wearing and fall layering. What’s even better? This tank is written for 6 sizes, so it’s accessible to more crocheters!
