This is my newest pattern-in-progress. It is shorter in front, longer in the back with my favorite x-stitch pattern up and down the middle. There is very little shaping – just at the back on the side panels. It is crocheted with a fine/sport weight yarn and the pattern will be for sizes extra small to extra large. I was going to have the pattern go up to 3x but that was just too much math for my puny brain!
I wore it all day yesterday and it slowly grew longer on me as the day wore on. I am not sure if it was the yarn I used (it was a bamboo, soy blend yarn that I purchased from an Ebay seller in China, the label was in Chinese so I could not verify it was what they claimed it was), or if it is because I tend to crochet loosely. Crochet does tend to stretch if it is hanging and this top has 6-8 inches of ease so it hangs. I once knitted a tank top out of 100% bamboo yarn that grew while I was wearing it. After repeated washings, it shrunk a little and seemed to get sturdier so it stopped growing.
I am not sure what skill level this pattern is. It is deceptively easy (writing the pattern is NOT easy!), but I have been crocheting for so long that I am out of touch with what it was like to be a beginner!
