NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Knitting tension: Remember needle size is only a guide. 10 stitches x 12 rows with needle size 9 mm and stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm.

Rib: * K2, P1 *, repeat from *-*.
---------------------------------------------------------

Top: The top is worked in 1 piece, back and forth on circular needle. Loosely cast on 62-68-74-74-80 stitches (incl. 1 edge stitch in each side) with circular needle size 9 mm and 1 strand Vienna + 2 strands Glitter. Purl 1 row from the wrong side and 2 rows rib with 1 edge stitch in each side. Then continue with stocking stitch. Remember the knitting tension! When piece measures 21-23-25-26-27 cm, work 2 rows rib with 1 edge stitch in each side. Cast off in rib.

Assembly: Sew together mid back inside the 1 edge stitch.

Shoulder straps: Cast on 4 stitches with circular needle size 9 mm and 1 strand Vienna + 2 strands Glitter. Knit 1 row, * push the stitches to right end of needle without turning piece, tighten strand at back and knit 1 row back from the same side as the previous row *, repeat from *-*. In this way, you get a round strap without purling. NOTE: So the strap is neat, you need to tighten the strand well at the back on each row. Cast off when strap measures approx. 28-30-32-34-36 cm (incl. 1 cm seam on each side). Work 1 more strap and fasten to back of rib with approx. 15-15-16-17-17 cm between front and back.

Crochet flower: Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 3 mm and Safran and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch.

Round 1: 6 double crochets around ring, finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet.
Round 2: 1 double crochet in first double crochet, * 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet in next stitch *, repeat from *-* a total of 5 times and finish with 3 chain stitches and 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round = 6 chain-spaces.
Round 3: 1 chain stitch, then work as follows in each chain-space: 1 double crochet, 1 chain stitch, 3 treble crochets, 1 chain stitch and 1 double crochet, finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round.
Round 4: Turn piece, * work 1 double crochet in double crochet from round 2 (work at back of petals around stitch from previous round, tighten strand), 5 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times and finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round.
Round 5: 1 chain stitch, then work as follows in each chain-space: 1 double crochet, 1 chain stitch, 5 treble crochets, 1 chain stitch and 1 double crochet, finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round.
Round 6: Turn piece, * work 1 double crochet in double crochet from round 2 (work at back of the 2 petals around stitch from previous round, tighten strand), 7 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times and finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round.
Round 7: 1 chain stitch, then work as follows in each chain-space: 1 double crochet, 1 chain stitch, 1 treble crochet, 5 double treble crochets, 1 treble crochet, 1 chain stitch and 1 double crochet, finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round.
