ABOUT
The #SizeInclusive Timberwood Tank is a full-coverage tank top that looks knitted but is worked up entirely with a crochet hook! It is crocheted in vertical rows, all in one piece, using short rows to shape the bust area while also providing a visually appealing design detail to this otherwise simple fabric.

In this pattern, you will use a variety of slip stitches to produce a clean, knit-like texture and a unique method of construction, using the center panel as a foundation onto which the rest of the top is crocheted. The main stitch used in this top creates a ribbed, figure-hugging fabric that allows the garment to stretch nicely over the fullest part of your bust while also remaining close-fitting in the waist.

The simple, yet striking, Timberwood Tank was designed to become your new favourite closet-staple; casual enough to wear lounging at home, yet polished enough to wear at the office.

Let’s explore crochet’s most underrated stitch: the slip stitch.
