Hook: 10 mm (beige top) or 6 mm (grey top)

Follow pattern for Etna top but make half as many decreases. For the grey top crochet use single crochet instead.
For the straps: chain 80 (or 10 for the grey top) and crochet hdc slip stitches: Yarn over, hook through chain, yarn over, pull through stitch and all loops. Repeat through the remaining chains.
For elastic back:
For the straps only chain 40 (70 for the grey top). Repeat the hdc slip stitch above.
Cut a piece of 5 mm elastic that measures about 20 cm. Attach to both sides of the top with safety pin. With a 4 mm hook crochet single crochet around the elastic until it covers it. Sew in the elastic. Use this tutorial.
