Doily Tank

Two doilies, worked in sturdy cotton, are used as a stencil to create a sun-ready tank. It's as much fun to make as it is to wear.

Description
Crocheted doilies act as a stencil on a dark cotton tank when misted with household bleach. Branch out by using any crochet motif you can think of and add them to tops, pants, bags, and more!
Details
Finished Size: Large motif measures 11” in diameter. Small motif measures 9” in diameter.
Yarn: Any color of worsted weight cotton yarn. It is dense, smooth, and heavy enough to stay in place. Original project uses Lion Brand, lion cotton (100% cotton; 236 yd [215 m]/5 oz [142 g]; CYCA #4): 152, espresso, less than half of a skein.
Yarn Weight: #4 - Medium
Hook: Size I/9 (5.5 mm). Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.
Notions: Yarn needle; tank top (95% cotton, keep in mind that darker colors will show most results); small spray bottle; household liquid bleach; plastic trash bags; masking tape; rubber gloves; bucket of water, one 8oz bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide 3%.
Gauge: Work through round 3 of smaller motif. This should measure about 4.5” in diameter. Gauge is not really that important for this project. Ensure the motif is a size that looks good to you and there is enough space between stitches to make a lacy pattern.
