Ten Tank Tops for Summer

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/red-fuji-tank-topThere are so many great tank top knitting patterns out there, but I love alliteration so here are 10 of them that you might want to get on your needles pronto so you can wear them when the weather really heats up!

Berroco’s Tank of Many Colors is a perfect place to start if you’ve never knit a tank top (or any kind of top) before. This one is just about as easy as it gets, but it’s still pretty and fun thanks to a shimmery yarn.

Tank Girl by Vickie Howell is another pretty easy project that has a little bit more detailing to make it more interesting to knit and to wear. There are some cool dropped stitches to add a bit of punk flair, but you could always leave those out if you’d rather.

The That Girl tank by Nikol Lohr is another fun one and it’s completely customizable to your measurements. It also offers sleeves if you’d rather have them.

Ribbing makes a big impact on the Fitted Tank Top by Shiri Mor, while fisherman’s rib is the star of the tank top from Craft Foxes.

Want to add a little lace to your project? Try the Lillian Tank Top by Amanda Reed, the Sugar Tank by Claudia Olson, Betty Zimmermann’s Heart Lace Top or the wonderfully named Sarah Tank Top from Christine Buhagiar.

Or if you really want to wow people with your knitting prowess (though the yarn does a lot of the work here, for sure) try the Red Fuji Tank Top from Ram Wools. It’s a show-stopped for sure.

Have any favorite tank top patterns? I’d love to see them!
