Whitney Heather Tank Top

Although I have been crocheting for over 20 years, this project was a lot of “firsts” for me! It was my first time crocheting from a pattern that I didn’t design myself, my first time crocheting a garment with a mix of stitches, and this was my first project working as a Brand Ambassador for Fancy Tiger Crafts.

Pattern: Heather Tank Top by Divine Debris on Ravelry 
Materials: Shibui Fern colorway Bone 2181
Size Made: Size 2X
Modifications: 
• The pattern calls for DK yarn, and because I chose sport weight, I sized my hook down to 4.5 mm
• I knit a size 2X, which is one size up to accommodate for the downsized hook and yarn weight
• I lengthened the tank top by adding 6 more repeats of the 2-row-repeat pattern simply because I prefer longer tops.

I chose to crochet the Heather Tank Top designed by Amber @divinedebris on Instagram. One of my favorite parts of this tank is the back which is so stylish. I love the filet crochet details on both the back and the front. The details give this super easy tank a very sophisticated vibe! With this being my first time following a crochet pattern, I wanted something easy, that didn’t look too simple or plain.

I picked the yarn Shibui Fern in the color Bone, and it was so nice to work with! Since I knew this top will be a wardrobe staple, I picked a neutral color. It’s sport weight and 100% organic cotton, and it feels like pure luxury! The weather in California stays on the warm side more often than cold so I know this cotton tank will be in heavy rotation. This combination of yarn and pattern are a perfect match! The cotton is so light weight and soft & the stitches allow me to catch the breeze.

It felt really great to complete this project! It works up quickly and it is very flattering. Overall, it took me 6 hours, spread out in 30-minute increments. I look forward to styling this tank for different seasons and different occasions.
