How much yarn do I need for a crochet tank top?

Depending on the style and size you are making of the crochet tank top of your choice, the amount of yarn required to crochet a tank top can vary from as little as 2-7 skeins of yarn.

Patterns that have an open, mesh look will use less yarn than a detailed pattern that features textured stitches.

If you are looking to recreate a longer style tank top, that extra length will also require more yarn.

All patterns will advise the amount yarn used in the designers creation along with estimates of yarn required to recreate the pattern. You can read more about calculating how much yarn you’ll need here.

What’s the best yarn to crochet a Tank Top?

The best yarn to crochet a tank top with is acrylic, or cotton-acrylic blend yarns. 100% cotton will loose it’s shape and stretch once  you have worn it a few times.

It might seem conflicting to see the recommendation of using acrylic yarn for a warm weather project, but as acrylic shares many of the same properties as wool, it can be a good choice for a sleeveless, summer crochet project.

If your crochet tank top has a loose fit, or is designed to be oversized, 100% cotton is a great choice to replicate the fit of a pattern.
