Hey guys,
Thanks for the enthuze! I didn't actually use a pattern, but let's see what I can do...

This is knit flat, for about a 32 waist and a 34 bust, so adjust as needed.
So the basic idea was:

Materials:
Needles size 5, 9 and 10.5 US
About 2 6oz. skeins of Caron Simply Soft Brites!, Blue Mint

BACK:
on #10.5 needles
CO 56
Do 2x2 ribbing for 6 rows
Stockinette stitch for ~9 inches (stop roughly where the bottom of your boobs would be)
Switch to #9 needles
Stockinette stitch for 4-5 more inches
2x2 ribbing for 6 more rows
BO

FRONT:
Same as for back, but cast on 68 (I did 72, but it was a little bit too big)

Then mattress stitch up the sides (awesome explanatory video here )

STRAPS:
On #5 needles
CO 8
Garter stitch for 8 rows
Do a button hole (Great video here )
Garter stitch until its the length you want it (make sure to account for stretching!)
Another button hole
Garter stitch 7
BO

Then I just roughly sewed four buttons on the inside of the shirt, where i wanted to attach the straps, and voila!

You'll probably have extra yarn at the end...I made a matching scarf!

I hope this helps!

thanks for the pattern. What was your gauge do you know? I'm just *slightly* bigger than you LOL and I'd like to adjust the pattern

This is fabulously cute! I love the color too. But I think I'll have to save it to knit up after I'm pregnant and my body stops changing!

I'm really sorry, but I don't know.  I'm not all that good with gauges! But I'm sure if you just added extra stitches on the COs you'd be fine.  Its a nice stretchy shirt Smiley

Just a little bit of math: the circumference around the bottom is 32", accomplished with 124 stitches.  Comes to approx. 4 stitches to the inch.  Cute top!
