My TMZ debut!!!

Starbella™ Yarn Tank Top
Supplies:
3-4 skeins Premier Yarns® Starbella™ (sample used just over 2 skeins)
Circular needle with a cord shorter than desired measurement (size does not matter)
Size N crochet hook
Size 9 knitting needles (optional)
Notes:
Since gauge is determined by the netting in the yarn, you can use any size needle. But make sure your length is not longer than the bust measurement you are using. For the example, 40 stiches were cast on with a 24” circular needle.
Bamboo needles are highly recommended as they are less slippery. This yarn slides off needles very easily, so be careful when setting down.
When knitting in the round, ruffles will only appear on one side!
Directions:
Multiply bust measurement by 1.5 and cast on that number of stitches (example: bust = 30” then cast on 45 stiches; if bust = 40” then cast on 60 stiches).
Carefully join in the round, being careful to not twist stiches.
Knit into the top loop of netting in the round until piece reaches desired length. When measuring the Starbella top, hold up vertically as the piece will lengthen quite a bit. It may help to try the top on to achieve the best fit, but this fabric is very stretchy and flexible and will accommodate many shapes and sizes. Note that when knitting in the round, you are working from the bottom of the shirt to the top!
To bind off, switch your right needle to a size 19, or hold two smaller needles together. Needle size is not critical, but the bind off edge must be knit very loosely. Knit two stitches using the full piece of yarn with the netting held together (don’t separate yarn when removing from skein), then pass the first stitch over the second stitch (binding off). Continue to knit and pass the first stitch over and off the needle until all stitches are worked. This will leave a nice decorative edge on the neckline.
Using the full yarn together (don’t separate), determine how long you want your straps to be and chain that length with size N crochet hook. Turn chain and work a single crochet into each chain stitch; repeat so there are two rows of single crochet. Sew or knot both ends of each strap into place.
If you have any loose ends, carefully knot just the top edge under a ruffle so they aren’t visible.
Other Ideas:
Use ribbon for the straps
Make into a halter by attaching straps to the front, and tying loose ends behind your back
Hold a smooth yarn along with Starbella™ as you knit for a thicker fabric that provides more coverage
