It’s time to make your own trendy and stylish granny square tank top! This tank is made out of our handmade worsted weight silk yarn and can be worn over a simple tank or crop top to really showcase the colors.
- 5.5 mm crochet hook
- 1 skein of silk roving worsted weight yarn - Color A - I used Dandelion Poof
- 1 skein of silk roving worsted weight yarn - Color B - I used Phenomenon

You can use any colors you want! I love being able to mix our regular worsted weight with our sparkle worsted for a little pop of shimmer!

Connect Your Squares
Using Color C, Sandwich 2 squares together and SLST the first CH. SLST the BLO for the remainder of the side of the square. Connect the rest of your squares with the SLST method. I’ve created a chart for you to know which squares to connect together
Create The Strap
Using color C, SLST to the edge of the top of the square. CH 50. When finished, SLST the CH to the other corner of the square that makes up the top portion of the tank top.
