Materials for Making Crochet Tops

To make a crochet top, you’ll want to have a few crochet supplies on hand.

  • Crochet Hook (My favorite set is linked up!)
  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers
  • Measuring Tape
  • Yarn needle (aka tapestry needle)

You’ll find below that all the top patterns will have a recommend crochet hook size and yarn weight. Before committing to a pattern, be sure to read through to find out what the pattern requires. This way, you’ll have everything you need on hand.

Most of these airy summer tanks and tops use cotton yarn, which makes them lightweight and breathable when worn during the warm days. Take a look below at my favorite cotton yarn for crocheting tops, Lion Brand 24/7 cotton.

Not only will you see tanks being made with 100% cotton yarn, but you will see in these easy top patterns below that some will also use a cotton blend yarn as well.

How much yarn does it take to crochet a tank top?

Since crochet tops can be made in many styles and sizes, there is no definite answer to this question, except that the amount of yarn required will depend on the size, yarn weight and stitches used in the pattern.
