Kids strappy shirt, size 5-7 with pattern
A bunch of sportweight cotton yarn (I never measured my amount, I'm sorry. I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say at least 400 yards)
US Size 3 long circs
US Size 5 long circs
Using the long tail CO method, and your sz 3 circs, CO 100 sts. Join and knit 1x1 ribbing for 3-4 inches.
K one round to end
switch to size 5's and K1M1 to end (I used an invisible method by making one on the yarn between two sts) (200sts)
K for two inches
rd 1, k2tog yo repeat to end
rd2, 3 and 4, k
rd 5 yo, k2tog
rd 6, 7 and 8, k
repeat these 8 rnds until you've reached your desired length
Add a few rows of garter st to prevent curling (or skip this is you like a curly look)
Straps, pick up 6 st along CO edge, knit a 6inch long icord, attach to the back, do this twice for both straps. I just eyed where I thought the straps should go.
Weave those ends in and you're done!
