Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them. (more…)

After the Rain ~ free crochet child tank top pattern by Jessie At Home

After the Rain
Free Crochet Pattern
Easy/Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This sweet little tank is a great accessory for any little girl’s summer! It can be worn with jeans, a skirt, or anything in between. This pattern is only available in child small, I may one day go back and make it in more sizes, but that would most likely be a paid pattern. For now, this is the size I needed for a fun piece for one of my daughters for Easter, so this is the size you get for free. 🙂 I made it using some leftover Lion Brand Modern Baby yarn from another rainbow project I made. You can make yours in just one color, or however many make you happy!!

Baker’s Tee
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

You won’t believe the simplicity of this pattern! It is simply a linen stitch rectangle with a slit in the middle, which is then folded in half. The vertical stripes add a fun accent to this easy tee. Plus, AUNT LYDIA’S® Baker’s Cotton is machine washable, and so very attractive! There are instructions at the end of the pattern on how to add length to the top if you want it longer.

Other Supplies:

Gauge:
26 sts and 27 rows in a 4” square in linen stitch. It is very important that you obtain gauge, use whatever size hook is needed to get the correct gauge. If your gauge is off, your tee will not be the correct size.

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
St(s) ~ stitch(es)

Getting Started:
Keep a row count throughout the entire pattern. Follow the color chart at the end of the pattern

Pattern:

Row 1: With smaller hook, ch 266 (274, 288, 294, 296, 300, 300, 306, 306), switch to larger hook, sc in second ch from hook, [ch 1, skip 1, sc in next ch] until 1 ch remains, sc in last ch.
*If you want your top to be longer, please see the instructions at the end of the pattern. The top is made longer by starting with more chains.

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in first sc, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 sp] through last ch-1, sc in last sc.
Repeat row 2: until there are a total of 53 (61, 67, 75, 81, 89, 95, 101, 109) rows.

Neck opening row: Ch 1, sc in first sc, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 sp] 35 (37, 38, 40, 40, 40, 40, 41, 40) times, switch to smaller hook, ch 89 (89, 91, 95, 95, 99, 101, 101, 105), skip 89 (89, 91, 95, 95, 99, 101, 101, 105), switch to larger hook, sc in next ch-1 sp, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 sp] through last ch-1, sc in last sc.

Next Row: Ch 1, sc in first sc, [ch 1, skip 1, sc in next st] until 1 st remains, sc in last sc. (on this row the single crochets worked over the linen st sections will be worked in the ch-1 spaces, and the single crochets work over the ch section will be worked in the chains.

Repeat row 2: until the color chart is completed, do not end off the last row, pull the loop long so it does not come undone, and remove hook.
Weave in all ends.

Border: Insert hook back into the loop from the last row and pull loop back around the hook. Ch 2, rotate piece, (sc in the edge of the next row, ch-1, skip the edge of the next row) across bottom of piece, rotate piece, ch 2, (sc in next ch-1, ch 1) along side of piece, ch 2, rotate piece, (sc in the edge of the next row, ch-1, skip the edge of the next row) across bottom of piece, join with a sl st to the first st of the last row made before the border.

Finishing: Fold the tee in half, so the long edge is folded and the short edges are lined up at the bottom; the fold is the top/shoulders of the tee. Sew up sides starting 2” above the bottom, and stopping 6.5 (7, 7.5, 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5) inches below the top. **optional: Instead of using the measurements given, try the tee on and determine the point that looks best for the end of the side seam. I suggest leaving a long tail on the seaming yarn, so after completing the seam you can try on the tee and raise or lower the armhole as may be needed.

To make the top longer:
If you want it longer you will start off with more chains. Determine how much longer you want the top to be, and add on 13 sts for each extra inch, then round up to the closest multiple of 4, (so for 1 inch you would add 1×13=13, round to 16, for 2 you would add 2×13=26, round to 28, for 3 you would add 3×13=39, round to 40, and so on) this will add 2 inches to the rectangle for every inch you need in length, but as it is folded in half, that is one inch to the bottom of the front, and one inch to the bottom of the back. When you get to the row for the neck slit, you will have to add half as many stitches before your neck slit. So if you added 16 stitches to your chain, you will have to make 8 more sts before starting the next, which is 4 more repeats of the [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 sp].

Obviously, adding length will affect the yarn amount used, be sure to buy enough yarn.

The other option is to add more onto the short ends of the rectangle after it is made by adding more rows of linen stitch after completing the border. This will effectively make a horizontal stripe at the bottom of the tee.
