This top is slightly oversized, if you prefer a more fitted top, I would suggest sizing down. First you will make the separate straps, and then join them with a round of double crochet before working the body of the top in circular crochet.

Line up the straps as shown in the picture above. The V-shaped openings will be the front and back and the rounded ones are the arm holes. Start the first body round at the base of one of the rounded opening and continue across the bottom of this strap and the others.

Round 1: Sl st 1 and insert a stitch marker. Sl st, sc 2, hdc 2, dc in every remaining stitch on the bottom of the straps <160, 168, 180, 188, 200, 208, 220, 228>

Round 2: Dc into stitch with marker, replace marker (Make certain the first round isn’t twisted) Dc into each remaining stitch in the round <160, 168, 180, 188, 200, 208, 220, 228>

Repeat Round 2 until the top reaches the desired length.

Final round: Dc in each stitch until the final six. Hdc 2, sc 2, sl st 2, end and weave in ends.

Assembly

Fold the top in half with the V-shaped opening in the center. The front and back of each strap should align. Sew these straps together.
