With all the bee patterns I’ve created, I felt it was time for a Queen Bee Crochet Tank Top Pattern. What I love about this crochet tank pattern is the easy construction.
And what better way to enjoy those summer days and buzzing of bees than to crochet a tank top. I’ll walk you through each step on how to crochet a tank top with a written pattern, crochet charts, and a crochet video tutorial.

Queen Bee Crochet Tank Top Notes:
Sizes are written as: XXS (XS, S, M, L) (1X, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X)
The Queen Bee Crochet Tank Top is worked in the round for the bottom colorwork portion, from the bottom up. It’s then split for front and back while decreasing for the arms on the edges. It’s finished by seaming the shoulders.
Colorwork instructions, Color A (White) will be abbreviated as (A), and Color B (Honey) as (B). All colorwork stitches will be worked in split single crochet.
Example: (B) x 9 = with Color B ssc the next 9 stitches
There is no need to chain 1 at the beginning of each row and this garment will be worked continuous for the bottom portion. When working in rows use a Stacked Single Crochet instead of a chain 1.
Use a stitch marker to keep track of the first stitch in the row.
