|Materials Used||3 skeins (100 grams each skein) No Boundaries (Walmart) “Cindy” yarn|
Top (Make 2):
Row 1: Ch 40, dc in 3rd ch from the hook and dc across. Ch 3, turn.
Rows 2- 20: Dc across in each st. Ch 3 and turn.
Row 21: Dc in the next 5 sts. (Count the ch 3 as 1 st, so you’ll have a total of 6 sts for the strap). Now sl st across until you have 6sts left. In those 6 sts, dc to the end. So you’ll have 6 dc on each side of the top for the strap.
Row 22: (One side of the top) Now ch 3, dc in the next 5 sts, turn, ch 3 and dc in the next 5 sts. Fasten off, leave a tail to sew top seam together. Now, sl st on other side attach yarn. Ch 3, dc in the next 5 sts across, turn, ch 3, dc in next 5 sts. Fasten off, leave a tail to sew top seam together.
Placing wrong sides together, sew top seams together. Then sl st sides together. Weave in all ends.
You are working in rounds.
Skirt Row 1: Attach yarn with a sl st to bottom of top. Dc in between each st around. (I mean that you don’t dc into the first chain, you actually dc in between those stitches all the way around. It lays better this way.) Sl st tog and ch 3.

Skirt Rows 3 – 7: Dc in each stitch around, sl st tog, ch 3.
