It’s definitely the style of the season, but the fringe is a timeless classic that you can transition from one part of the year to the next. We love it for layering in the winter too. Since you can never have too much fringe in your life, it’s time to try this fringe tank top crochet pattern.
This pattern uses the Erika Knight Studio Linen yarn in the color Bone. This yarn really is perfect for this pattern. If you’ve never used linen before then you’re in for a treat. The fiber absorbs moisture from the skin and gives it a really lovely cool, crisp feeling even on the hottest days. I can’t recommend this specific yarn enough for this project.

Place right sides of fabric together, and whip stitch the top of the shoulders together only on the dc section. The sc section is left open as the neckline. Stitch the bottom 27 rows together, and turn right side out. Using the 8 inch cardboard square, wrap the yarn around the square 336 times (416 for m/l) and cut the bottom. Using two strings at a time, fold the ends together and pull a loop through the bottom of the fabric, then pull the tails through and pull snug. Repeat around.
