This is a beginner project. This is steps for small adult. Use a 5.50mm crochet hook for this project. This is for those who already know how to crochet.

Step 1: The Ribbed Portion

Ch 11 sc in 2nd st from the hook. Ch 1 turn and sc in each back st of ea sc. See 2nd image. Ch 1 turn and sc in ea back st until you have 11"".

This section will be vertical on the project.

Ch 4 sc in every other st to the end of the row.

Step 3: The Ties

This step you can use what ever you want for ties from ribbon, crocheted ribbon, rope, chain use your imagination. I have shown a few different ways with two different types of ribbon and a crocheted ribbon.

You can wear this as a halter top or a halter top swim suit and use a pair of shorts or a swimsuit bottom.
