Body

FOUNDATION CHAIN + ROUND 1: FHDC 100(116, 132, 148, 164, 180, 196), sl st into the 1st FHDC.
<100, 116, 132, 148, 164, 180, 196 >

*Wrap the Foundation Half Double Crochet Chain around your bust to double check that the top will fit (It’s ok to stretch the chain). If it’s too small I suggest sizing up.

ROUND 2: Ch 1, turn, HDC 100(116, 132, 148, 164, 180, 196), sl st into 1st HDC.

Repeat ROUND 2 until ROUND 37(414549535761).
*You can add or remove rounds to reach your desired length.

FINAL ROUND: Turn, *Ch 7 (counts as a stitch), skip 3 stitches, sl st into the next stitch; rep from * until end, sl st into the first st of the round. Fasten off.
You should finish with < 25, 29, 33, 37, 41, 45, 49 > scallops.

Straps

FOUNDATION CHAIN: Ch 7

ROW 1: DC into the 3rd chain from the hook, DC 4. <5>

ROW 2: Ch 2, turn, DC 5. <5>

Repeat ROW 2 until ROW 40(424446485052). Fasten off.

Repeat STRAPS instructions until you have 4 straps.

*Alternatively, you can create 2 straps and have 2 plain straps instead of the tie straps. I suggest safety pinning the straps to the top and trying on the garment. Since plain straps are not adjustable, you may need to add or remove rows to reach your desired strap length.

Assembly

Fold the top in half with the front facing you. Measure in 4cm from the sides of top and pin the straps into place.

Turn the top over, (the back and seam should be facing you). Measure 5cm from the sides of the top and pin the straps into place.

*Note – I recommend trying on the top after you have pinned the straps. You can adjust the placement of the straps so they can fall where you want them too.

Sew the straps to the top.

Weave in all of your ends.

*Note – Along the body seam, sew the corners of the first and last Foundation Half Double Crochets together.
