More about the Shine Like A Diamond Crochet Tank Top

The Shine Like A Diamond Top is worked as one piece, from bottom up, and in rows. If a longer length is desired add one more repeat on the body portion. Trim is added and at the same time buttonholes are created for the front.

Sizes are written as Extra Small (Small, Medium, Large) (1X, 2X, 3X) and this is a fitted garment, the bust sizes are the actual measurements.

As an alternative strap, a crochet i-cord can be used. A tutorial for an i-cord can be found here:
https://brianakdesigns.com/how-to-crochet-an-i-cord/

When the pattern says dc 3, this means to double crochet in the next 3 sts.

Special Stitches:
Stacked single crochet (stsc): this is crocheted at the beginning of each row instead of chaining. The stacked single crochet counts as a double crochet stitch. The same stitch is modified for the decreases. Replacing the beginning chain with this method creates cleaner lines along the garment. It is helpful to place a marker at the beginning of each row to mark the first stitch. See blog post for more info: https://brianakdesigns.com/stacked-single-crochet/

Double crochet decreasing: for this pattern, a dc3tog is used as a decrease on each edge when shaping the top. The method used for this incorporates the stacked single crochet. Instructions can be found here: https://brianakdesigns.com/stacked-single-crochet/

Fasten off.

For the second side, have the RS facing and count in 89 sts from the opposite side and attach the yarn, then repeat the instructions above.

Diamond Crochet Tank Top Edging

With the RS facing, attach the yarn on the front at the first decreasing row, loosely sl st around all the edges without causing any puckering, join to the first st with a sl st. Do not fasten off.

Tips:
Chain 1 on the corners.
Sl st 3 sts per 2 rows along the row edges.
St st 2 sts per row along the decreased edges.
Work in the blo of top and bottom st edges.

First Front Trim

Row 1: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch here and for the rest of the pattern), working in the blo sc down the front of the opening, turn.

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each front st across, turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, in the flo sl st in each front st across, fasten off.

Second Front Trim & Button Holes

Row 1: With the RS facing, use stitch markers to mark the button holes evenly spaced across the front. Each buttonhole will be a ch 2 space.

Join the yarn to the bottom left corner and ch 1, working in the blo sc up the front of the opening, *sc to marker, ch 2, skip 2*; repeat from * to * across, turn.

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each front st and ch st across, turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, in the flo sl st in each front st across, fasten off.

Crochet Tank Top Straps

There are three stitches at the top front of the tank where we will start the straps.

Row 1: Insert your hook into the first st, yo and pull up a loop, (insert your hook into the next stitch, yo and pull up a loop) twice. Yo and pull through one loop on the hook, (yo and pull through two loops on the hook) twice.

Repeat Row 1 until the strap is the desired length, then fasten off and stitch to the back of the tank. It helps to try it on and pin the placement for the best fit.

For the sample shown, 60 rows were created for the straps.

Diamond Crochet Tank Top Bottom Ribbing

Row 1: Ch 6, sc in the second chain from hook and across to the bottom of the tank, sl st 2 sts along the edge (these do not count as sts), turn. 5 sts

Row 2: Skip the two sts from the bottom edge, in blo sc in each st across until the last st, sc in both loops of the last st, turn.

Row 3: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), sc through both loops of the first st, blo sc in each st

across, sl st 2 sts along the bottom edge, turn.

Repeats: Repeat Rows 2-3 around the bottom of the tank, fasten off.
