And another vote for the ribbon.

Just to mess with your head, what if you crocheted a chain in a contrasting colour?

another vote for crochet chain...however I think it could be versatile. The ribbon looks a little more dressy to me so maybe if you were going out to eat or something. But the crochet chain makes it look laid back so like the park or something.

I think the crochet chain is better for your shape, but the ribbon is more dressy. No reason why you can't swap them over whenever you like.

Pattern please! I'm also a no-booby kinda gal and that looks great!! Also, I like the crocheted chain better - but there's no reason why you can't swap between chain and ribbon.

Thanks for all the comments ladies  :-)  interesting that there was such a mix as to the ribbon/crochet chain.....  guess I can swap them around as I feel like or if I get bored with one.....

This is the pattern (please excuse the fact it is fairly rough..... )

For the back  I cast on 72 stitches on 5mm needles using TLC cotton plus, and did K2p2 rib for aprox 8".  that brought it just about up to under my bust.  Then I made a row of eyelets by doing k2 YO k2together.  Then carried on with the k2p2 for another 4".
For the armhole shaping I cast off 6 stitches at each side and then on every other row decreased one stich at the armhole edge until I had 46 stitches left.  I also slipped the first stitch of each row to give it a nice edge.  once there were 46 stitches left I carried on knitting in the rib until the whole thing measured aprox 16". 
The straps were made using 6 stiches in rib, and I cast off the center 40 stiches for the neckline, leaving 6 stiches each side on a holder and then knit the straps using those.  The straps on the back I made 2" long.

The front was made almost identically but came a bit lower at the neckline - I knitted that to 15" long before I started on the straps and those on the front are 3" long.  Then I sewed the whole thing together, crochet a chain and threaded it through.......

As far as the size of this goes, I have a 34" bust and if anything it is a little big on me, but it is very, very stretchy and probably would fit someone much larger than me quite easily..........

hope that helps and you can understand my rather vague description Smiley

Thank you for the pattern. I think it's easy to follow and not rough at all.
