The Blushing Eyelet Tank crochet pattern is a great summer staple! It is SO easy to make! If you know how to do the most basic crochet stitches you can make this tank top!
I used Mary Maxim’s brand new yarn line, Simply Natural. Simply Natural is a DK (#3) weight yarn that is 54% cotton and 48% bamboo. It has a very soft feel too it, unlike some cotton blends tend to be. One skein contains 245 yards. The line currently comes in 12 colors. The yarn can be machine washed and dried. I do highly recommend using a lightweight DK yarn, like this one, for this project. A heavier cotton blend or 100% cotton tends to feel somewhat heavy and not lay as well.
I really enjoyed working with this yarn. I think it is a true DK (#3) weight. It has a nice drape to it, and like I said above, it is very soft. The only complaint I could say I have about it was it was hard to find the center pull without pulling out big chunks of the middle. But that’s a very small issue compared to how fun this yarn is to work with!
The Blushing Eyelet Tank is a top down, raglan-ish workup. Instead of working until the piece can fold over itself, I created the armholes by chaining. Then the rest of the project is just adding length to the garment! You can easily adjust the length as well as where the eyelets sit on the tank top. I did not block this one for a change, and it still sits very nicely over my bust and torso.
