The measurement of one rectangle for the back panel.

First step.

Let’s measure your bust size and then divide by 2, for example, my bust size is 32/2.

So I will get 16 inches for my size. Feel free to add more inches for a loose-fitting or perfect fit.

For example, if I will add one more inch for loose fitting for my top. 

If you girl wants your mesh top to be loose fitting, just add 2 more inches for your bust after diving by 2, or if you want an oversize top add 4 more inches.

See the video tutorial for how to make them into your size.

Second step.

Pick up a crochet hook size 4.0 mm and Start off by making a slip knot.

Then make 70 chains for size small and medium fit from bust size 30-34.

Row 1: * in the next chain from the hook, make dc, then * ch1, skip 1 chain and make dc in the next chain * repeat this * to * across until the end of the row, ch 2, and turn.

Row 2:  make dc in the same st then * ch1, skip chain space from the previous row, then dc in the next st* repeat this* to * and across until the end of the row. Chain 2 and turn.

Hi :)

Lovely pattern. I have just finished the back panel.

I would like to make the vneck deeper. Would that mean I need to start the vneck part at about 12 inches instead?

Thank you Bethany

HI Bethany yes that right you need to start the v neck at 12 inch inseated.

This is my all time favourite stitch! I love using this stitch to make summer blankets for my grandkids! The youngest is 3 and he loves to put his fingers in the open squares. Thank you for showing me another way to use this stitch in a different project!
