The Sarasota Tank Top is one of my favorite crochet tank tops of all time! I absolutely love how fun and simple it is to crochet and how gorgeous it looks worn!
This pattern truly comes with a story behind it! I had just moved to Sarasota, FL a month before I designed this crochet tank top. Sarasota is the setting for some of the most beautiful gulf beaches you will ever see! Plus it stays warm here nearly year round, so I set out to create some summer designs!
This crochet tank top is one you can truly wear in the summer! I live in southwest Florida and I wear it year round! Now, you do have to wear a little camisole tank underneath because the stitch work is very open and lacy. But that’s also what makes it so great for summer!
I used Lion Brand Coboo yarn for my Sarasota Tank Top. Coboo is a DK (#3) weight yarn made of 50% cotton and 50% bamboo.
Coboo is one of my favorite cotton blend yarns! It comes in a beautiful variety of colors and it can be washed and dried in the machine!
You can check out my in-depth review of Coboo yarn on the Garments and Gauge crochet podcast!
Sizing and Workup
This crochet tank top pattern comes in women’s sizes XS to 3X. It is a fitted tank top, without any ease, so if you’re in between sizes, I recommend you size up.
Check out my post on Crocheting Garments for helpful tips to get a great fit!
I’m wearing a size medium in the photos, and I am 5’3″ and have a 36″ bust.
The pattern is worked from the bottom up in the round. There is no sewing necessary. You will create the straps at the end by skipping stitches and chaining.
The design is easy to adjust. You can add or take away repeats for length. If you would just like a little bit more room in some areas I recommend going up a hook size or two for those areas. You can also adjust the thickness of the straps by working more rounds.
This pattern is rated Intermediate in pattern difficulty. You will need to know the basic crochet stitches as well as how to do decrease stitches such as dc3tog.
