Hi! *waves* I'm Meg, and I'm brand new to Craftster!

A friend of mine showed me a picture of a triangle bodiced shirt today and asked that I write a pattern for it. Well, I wasnt too fond the shirt pictured so I went out on my own with it.

Annnd because I havent posted 10 times in this forum, I am not allowed to put a picture in this message. Sooo here is the link to the picture!

Well there you have it. It's not really as curvacious as it looks, Its just the way its laying. I have to get some little beads to sew onto it (resembling seeds), and I am thinking of making an applique or two to add later. DD isnt home right now (went to see her Nonny [gma] for a bit) so I'll try it on her later. I hope it fits. *fingers crossed*

I've also finished typing up the pattern! Go me!

Sooo...whaddya think??

Action pics

Oh, and for whomever asked, seeds like watermelon Smiley

Note: I JUST wrote this today. I have not had any testers. So, if you find an error or have a question/need a pic let me know! Thanks!! Also, if anyone makes this, I'd LOVE to see pics of the finished product!!

Slice of Sweet Halter Top
H Hook for sizes 3/4    I Hook for sizes 5/6.
Materials Needed
Lily Sugar N Cream Cotton
4oz pink (MC)
small amount of green (AC)
H or I hook
Tapestry Needle (plastic)
black embroidery yarn/floss (optional)
bugle beads (optional)

Special Stitches: V-Stitch (v-st): dc, ch 1, dc in same space.

Triangles (make two)
With MC:
Ch 5
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across. Turn (3dc)
Row 2: ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout) dc in same dc, dc in next dc, 2dc in last dc. Turn (5dc)
Row 3: ch 3, dc in same dc, work 1dc in each dc across to last dc, 2dc in last dc. Turn (7dc)
Row 4: ch 3, dc in same dc, 2dc in next dc, work 1dc in each dc across to last 2dc. 2dc in each of last 2dc. Turn (11dc)
Row 5: Repeat Row 4 (15dc)
Rows 6-7: Repeat Row 3 (19dc) Fasten off. Leave at least a 3 tail for securing triangles together.

Using a small but tight knot, tie tails together to join triangles.

Join AC with sl st to top of dc on outside of triangle.
Row 8: ch 3, dc in same sp, 2 dc in next dc, work 1dc in each dc across to last dc of triangle, 2dc in last dc. Work 1dc around joining knot. Beginning on second triangle, place 2dc in first dc, work 1dc in each dc across to last 2dc of triangle, 2dc in each of last 2dc. Ch 42 making sure not to twist chain. Join with sl to top of first dc in row 8. Fasten off AC. (44dc, 42ch sps)

With MC, Begin working in rounds.
Rnd 9: Ch 3, dc in each dc and ch sp around (86dc)
Rnd 10: Ch 4 (counts as dc+1 here and throughout) dc in same space (v-st made) *sk next 2 dc, v-st in next dc* Repeat * to * around to last 2dc. Sk last 2dc, sl in ch3 sp at beginning of round. (28v-st)
Rnds 11-24: Sl to next ch1 space. Ch 4, dc in same sp, v-st in each ch1 sp around. Join with sl in ch3 sp at beginning of round.

If making size 5/6 you may want to add a few more rounds to make it longer.Again, I havent had any testers so I cant be 100% sure on how many extra to add. I'd guess 4 additional rows would do the trick!

Rnd 25: Sl to next ch1 sp. Ch 3, 5dc in same sp. Sc in next ch1 sp. *Work 6dc in next ch1 sp, sc in next ch1 sp* Repeat * to * to end. Join with sl st to top of first dc in cluster. Fasten off.

With AC
Rnd 26: Join with sl to any sc in round 25. Ch 1, sc in same space. *sc in each of next 6dc of cluster, sc in next sc* Repeat from * to * to end. Join with sl st to top of first sc in round. Fasten off.

Straps: (make two)
With AC: Ch 51, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch sp across to last 7ch sps. Sc in next ch sp, hdc in next ch sp, dc in each of remaining 5 ch sps. Fasten off leaving long tail for sewing.

With AC: Join with sl st on end of Row 8. Ch 1, sc in same space, work 1sc in each row end. Sc in first stitch of foundation chain, work sc evenly along top of triangle. Work sc evenly along edges of triangles, across top and down side of second triangle. Sc in each ch space on back of top. Join with sl st to first sc in this row. Fasten off.

Using tapestry needle, sew one strap along top each triangle.
Weave in any loose ends.

A: Using tapestry needle and small amount of black yarn, embroider seeds onto triangles.
B: Sew beads onto triangles.

No, like a watermelon. Smiley I guess it could be like a strawberry but I thought the triangles on top looked more like a slice of watermelon. That's how I came up with the name too. Not really clever but cute enough!

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

So cute, I love it! I'm currently making my second "Monica" Ruffle tank top for a friend's daughter (it's knit) but am going to crochet this for my little niece next. THANKS!
