Beth tank top finished...

Here's my version of the Beth tank from Berroco - I'm using a 4.0mm hook with Knit One Crochet Two 2nd time cotton in the Nantucket colorway shown here (scroll down, bottom right photo). I finished it a few days ago and added it into the end-weaving marathon with the Drops Top! Modifications: I increased the body length by an inch. Because my row height gauge wasn't dead on, I did 3 rows instead of 2 of the open top pattern on the front & back and similarly did 3 rows instead of 2 of the open top pattern on the front bodice panel. I like the way it looks and fits. The straps have a tendency to fall down though so I'm considering adding some sort of "cross strap" in the back, done in 2 rows of the open top pattern, or maybe multiple straps to make it look like they're supposed to be there. I'll have to think about this some more....
