Notes & Modifications

added .5” to hem
switched decreases after the split - did ssk first, then k2tog for both front sides and the back
continued decreases on front and finished with a CDD rather than have 3 stitches between the ribbed sections. Straps were still plenty wide.

Before blocking, the hem to split length is 15.5” - I expect it to stretch some when it blocks, but this was sufficient for me.

I’m really happy with how this turned out - I expect it’s going to be a summer staple.
