Free Crochet Pattern: Shell Shell

This layering tank top pattern was originally published in Crochet World magazine and the publisher has now made it available for free on one of their websites. The pattern is written in sizes small through 3X for a full range of sizes.

The original was made in a sport weight rayon, which has been discontinued. Rayon has a silky, lightweight feel. If you are able to find rayon made from bamboo in this yarn weight, it will be a good match. La Abuela Rayon from Omega yarns may also work. It’s the only 100% rayon I could readily find, but I am not sure of its weight.

Since the rayon is discontinued, though, you may find that a sport weight cotton yarn can be more easily found. For instance, Tahki Yarns Cotton Classic Lite could be easily substituted. You’re not going to want to substitute a heavy weight cotton, like Peaches and Cream. You’re looking for something about double the size of standard bedspread weight cotton.
