Summer Tank – Free Crochet Pattern – Review

Summer Tank - Free Crochet Pattern - Review


Walking through shopping centers can be so inspiring for us who know how to crochet. It is really hard to let myself spend money on pricey machine crocheted items when I know I can make it myself.

That being said, I have spent the last year searching for the perfect pattern to open my crochet world to adult clothing. When I spotted >>THIS<< free crochet pattern by EmmHouse I knew it was “The One”!

I was so thrilled to see how easily the shirt is made. It reminds me of making two big doilies and adding straps, then piecing it together. Very simple, and even the crochet beginner could figure it out with determination.

I did have to make adjustments on the shoulder parts so my numbers added up. You do not have to trust mine, but if you find your numbers don’t add up you are more than welcome to come back to my notes when you reach that point.

-note- The round parts of the pattern worked up perfectly and needed no changes at all.

-note- I used a 3.25 hook for starting CH circle and a 4 mm hook for rest.

-note- I used Cascade DK Cherub that is always on sale at Craftsy! CLICK HERE to use my affiliate link! :)

-note-  When you reach the crochet sleeves, I did not CH 5 after or before the shells on shoulder pieces…. besides on row 24. On row 26, CH 5 after shell. but not before the finishing shell. Follow rows 28- 30 exactly as directed. On second sleeve, on row 26 you will CH five before finishing shell but not after starting shell.

This was the perfect top! After posting a photo, I had people lining up begging for me to accept crochet orders!

Crochet Hemp Bracelet – Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet Hemp Bracelet - free crochet pattern

This bracelet is designed for a 6 inch wrist. I made mine 6.5-7 inches around for comfort. This bracelet is designed so you can easily make them smaller or larger. You may not need to adjust the pattern though.. this bracelet fit’s my small wrist, my husbands huge wrist, and my 4 year olds ankle.

2 colors of hemp cord. 10 yrds each.
4.25 MM crochet Hook
Yarn needle

CH – Chain
SC- Single Crochet
Slip Stitch

Step 1: CH 5. Slip stitch into first CH.
Step 2: CH 1. 3 SC into loop you just made. Do not join.
Step 3: CH 1. SC into each of the 3 SC.
Repeat step 3 to desired length. I repeated step 3 twenty six times.
Step 4: CH 10. Finish off.
Change colors
Step 5: CH 9. Slip stitch into the starting SC of your last step 3 repeat. Slip stitch up the side of the bracelet… through the center of each SC. Slip stitch into each CH (of the loop you made from step 1). Slip stitch back up the other side of the bracelet. Finish off when you reach the last repeat row of step 3.
Weave in your ends and finish off.

You use the CH ends to tie through the loop end. Making this bracelet custom fit to many wrists.
