I have started compiling some of my favorite patterns in different categories since there are so many out there–and lets face it–it can be hard to know where to start when seeking out new patterns & designers! You may already be planning out fall designs BUT Summer weather is still with us so I decided to do a roundup of full length summer tees and tanks that you can wear as we begin to transition Ito the cooler weather!
Hayfield Tank Top by Divine Debris – This is a fun, easy and size inclusive tank top pattern! You will need a DK weight yarn and 5mm hook! $4.00
The Selene Summer Dress and Peplum Tank by Sunflower Knots – this is a beautiful, size inclusive (made-to-measure) versatile pattern. Keep in mind that this one is an intermediate level pattern! You will need a DK weight yarn (hook size not listed). $9.00
The Avignon Tee by For the Frills – This is a wonderfully simple boxy summer tee perfect for beginners (and is also size inclusive). This design is accompanied by a video tutorial as well! The yarn weight and hook size is not listed but it definitely looks to be a lighter weight yarn. $4.33
The Wren Tank + Tee by Cactus & Lace Designs – This is an easy and versatile top that really is a fantastic option for a transitional piece since you can make a tank or a tee! This pattern is size inclusive and a beginner level pattern and you will need a lightweight (3) yarn and a 5.5mm hook! $4.99
The Darling Top by Designs by Key – This pattern is meant for advanced beginners and has a gorgeous texture that makes it perfect for layering! You will need a light weight (3) yarn and a 5.5m hook! $4.00
The Pamona Tee by Pink Sheep Design – If you love the idea of crocheting your own clothing but hate how long it takes to make tops with lighter weight yarn, this is the top for you! This top is beginner friendly and uses 2 strands bulky weight (5) cotton yarn held together and a 14mm hook, making this top work up super fast! (14mm hooks are hard to find, we make one that’s available in our shop but you can also use a 12/13mm or a 15mm hook)
Saratoga Poncho Top by Jess Coppom – this is a FREE super simple poncho-style top! It calls for using the Lion Brand LB Collection Cotton Bamboo yarn (hook size not listed). FREE!
Summer Wrap Top by E’Claire Makery – This is a fun, size inclusive wrap style top, making it fantastic for layering and transitioning into fall! You will need a light weight (3) size yarn (hook size not listed). $3.00
Dreamscape Tee By Katarina Crochet – This beautiful size-inclusive design uses techniques like half double crochet, increase and color work & you will need to know front post and back post double crochet for the ribbed band. The skill level is intermediate due to the color work, but according to Katarina, any beginner can make it and have great final results! $6.15
The Box Top by Woods and Wool Shop – This pattern was designed as an *almost* cropped style, but not quite a crop top. This shorter style is perfect to wear with high waisted pants, but easy to modify to make a longer length too! This pattern is quick, beginner friendly & size inclusive! You will need a lightweight (3) yarn (hook size not listed). $8.00
The Zalktis Top by Eleven Handmade – This design is a rich textured seamless top-down design that is also size inclusive! Just from the look of this top I would say you should be more experienced with following patterns before taking this one on but it was too beautiful to not include in this list!! You will need a worsted weight (4) yarn and a 7mm hook! $6.15
Driftwood Tee by Yay For Yarn Shop – This size-inclusive tee also includes a step by step video tutorial! You will need worsted weight (4) yarn and a 6mm crochet hook! $3.99
The Eastern Promises Top by The Wool Flower Co – This top is a Meade to measure design – made according to cup size and then your own unique waist measurement, to give you the coverage you prefer. You will need a worsted weight (4) yarn and a 4.5 mm hook! $6.50
The Sweet Tea Tank by The Turtle Trunk – This is a quick and easy crochet tank top/ crop top pattern that can be made cropped, full-length or anywhere in-between! It is a beginner friendly, size inclusive pattern that even includes a video tutorial! You will need a worsted weight (4) yarn and a 9mm hook! $3.50
The Sunny Raglan by Hooked Hazel – Looking for a beginner friendly, size-inclusive, seamless sweater? The Sunny Raglan Tee will fit the bill! Crocheted from the top down in one piece, this pattern works up quickly thanks to double crochets and worsted weight (4) yarn. Hook size not listed. $6.00
Sabrina Pullover by Journey Chanel Designs – This size-inclusive top has such a cool texture that I HAD to include it on this list! You can choose to make it short of long sleeved and you will need a DK weight yarn and a 4.25mm hook. I believe you will need to be an advanced beginner or intermediate crocheter for this pattern. $5.00
Elderflower High-Low Top by Woodland Creature Crochet – This beautiful top is a size inclusive (made-to-measure) design! You will need a DK weight yarn and a 5mm hook. $7.38
Hey June Top by April M Gopwani of OTH Crochet Nook – For a beginner, this pattern might look challenging but Aprils assures it’s beginner friendly! This is a FREE pattern and is size-inclusive (made to measure). You will need a worsted weight yarn and a 4.25mm hook. FREE!
