Crochet Beach Top

Eva is going on holiday in a couple of weeks, so we've been making some crochet tops that she wants to wear at the beach over her bikini. 
She is actually making her first top herself (I'm in tears from happiness!!), and I made this one following an idea of a design she showed me on tik-tok. 
If I have to be honest, the upper part should have been narrower, because when she ties it around the neck, it protrudes a bit, but when she ties it straight down, it is fine. She didn't want me to frog it and re-d0 it; but I can't stand looking at it - it just pokes me in the eye and messes with my OCD :)
We used 100 gr of 100% DK cotton yarn and a 5 mm hook. It always amazes me how big hooks and heavy weights make crochet projects work up fast. This was done in an hour (give or take).

Wow, Maya I love this crocheted top you made for your daughter. The top is gorgeous and so is your daughter. I hope she enjoys wearing this top on her holiday. It's great that she is making her own top too!

Thank you Julie! She has little patience and I thought she'd quit pretty soon, so I am surprised she is determined to make it :)
