wow that's pretty do u have a pattern for it? I wouldn't mind making one for my daughter.
I made up the pattern, but it's pretty easy, I'll explain it to the best of my ability. My daughter wears a size 5/6. So if you're daughter is smaller, I'd say decrease the starting chain by 6 chains for a size 4 and 12 for a size 2 (I'm just guessing at that really). It's made in two parts, the top (beige) and the bottom (pink). Guess I should also mention that I used worsted weight yarn and a 6.5mm hook.
Chain 60 + 2 turning chain.
Row 1: One hdc in first ch, chain one. Then do one hdc and chain one across. I think you'll end up doing two hdcs at the end. Chain 2 turning chain.
Row 2: Dc in first chain 1 space, ch 1, then dc, ch one across. (again I think you do two dc at the end). Chain 3 turning chain
Row 3:triple crochet in first ch 1 space, ch 1, the tc, chain 1 across. Chain 2 turning ch.
Row 4: Dc in first chain 1 space, ch 1, then dc, ch one across. (again I think you do two dc at the end). Chain 2 turning chain
Row 5: hdc in first chain 1 space, ch 1, then dc, ch one across. (again I think you do two dc at the end). Fasten off.
Bottom. (Shell stitch)
Join second color of yarn to the end of Row 5 of the top, chain 1.
Row 1: one sc in first two sts, chain 3, skip 3 sts, 3 sc. Do this until the end of the row, you should end up with two sc in the last two sts.
Row2: one sc in second st from hook, *5 dc into chain 3 space, skip one st, one sc into next st, skip one st.* repeat from * to * across. At end, one sc into last st in row 1.
Row 3: Slip stitch until you are in the 3rd dc of the shell you made in row 2. *Chain 3, one sc into 2nd, 3rd, and 4th dc of next shell.* Repeat from * to * across until last shell. In last shell, only sc into 2nd and 3rd st.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have formed the triangle. Fasten off.
Hold the halter up to your toddler and with contrasting yarn mark the logical place for the straps to be attached. Straps can be made any way you'd like. A simple braid, a crocheted strap, macrame, whatever. The length will depend on how tall your daughter is. My straps are about 18 inches. It's a little long now, but I figure she can wear it for a few years that way. Sew staps on with blunt yarn needle.
After I attached the straps I did a picot border around. Of course this is optional or you could do a different border or add fringe if you're going for a western look.
If you have any troubles with the pattern, just ask. If you do make one, please post a picture.
It seems a little racey for a toddler...
I see how one may think that, but it does wrap around enough to almost meet in the back and the front is long enough that her belly is completely covered. sure you can see a little skin , but honestly, she's 2 and I let her run around without a shirt on if it's hot enough.
