Criss Cross Tank


Worked flat in two pieces and then seamed together, the Criss Cross Tank is the ideal summertime tank. The pattern stitches are easy to remember, helping you work this up in time for your next summertime barbecue. Use post stitches and work in the front loops to create the lovely ribbed texture!
"This summer tank top pattern is available in sizes from XS to XL. The stitch pattern is beautiful and will look great over any camisole. And it's the perfect match for anything casual or dressy from shorts to a lovely summer skirt."

One can never have too many summer tops. Why, summer tops can easily be carried into every season of the year. When the weather begins to change this could easily be worn underneath other pieces of clothes like a sweater or blazer. Summer tops to me are the staple of my closet.

I am really excited that I have come across this criss cross tank pattern. During the summer months I live in tank tops. (I most definitely do not have the arms for them but I love them to pieces). I hope the first top is a success so that I can make more of them. Thanks for sharing.

I give extra points to the designer for what I consider to be a VERY flattering design for all women. The longer length, the v-neck neckline, the vented side slits on the hem, and the bra-friendly straps all make this a perfect top for any woman. not a huge fan of the pale yellow- I'd much rather see it in a flattering blue.

This top is simple, but that makes it perfect for a lazy summer day. The soft pastel yellow color is gorgeous!
