Cast on 145 stitches and work in stocking stitch for 94 rows. Begin back facing – purl next row for foldline. Starting with a purl row, stocking stitch 4 rows and cast off purlways. Finish ends. Mist lightly with water and pin out on ironing board, straightening edges and folding under the facing. Leave to dry. Tack down back facing and sew with matching buttonhole thread. Using mattress stitch sew side seams carefully, joining row to row and taking in two stitches each side. (4sts taken up in seam)


Right side facing, pick up and knit 286 sts with circular needles, going under both loops of the cable cast on. Knit 7 rounds. Cast off. Pin, dampen and sew as for back facing. The foldline is the pick up row.


With crochet hook, begin at right back (rs facing) and slip stitch around entire top, working across the back by crocheting into every second stitch through the upper chain loop. Continue around the front, picking up each stitch on the very edge. (This will be fairly tight to pick up). After reaching starting point continue across back with double crochet (US single crochet). Change to this pattern stitch when you reach the front:

2 chain, miss one, 1 slip st into next st (repeat around, working firmly).

Cut 2 pieces of pale yellow ribbon, sew ends under 5mm (1/4″), attaching one at underarm seam on right side of work. Thread ribbon from side seam to center front with a large tapestry needle. The ends meet here and tie in a bow. Sew straps at front position, turning ends under 5mm. Try on and sew back strap down as needed. Soft lingerie elastic can be inserted into the back channel for a snug fit.
