The Everyday Top - English
The Everyday Top - English
The Everyday Top is a simple top, which can be used as both undergarment and as a top. Cashmere works well to insulate when it is cold outside, while it directs heat away from your body when the seasons change.
Additionally the top can easily be styled in different manners to match both your need and style. The Everyday Top is both aesthetically simple, as well as constructed in a simple manner.
The Everyday Top is knitted from the bottom and up. At the bottom a hem is created, which will be folded after finalising the knitwear. The entire stomach section is knitted in circular in stocking stitches. When the desired length is reached, the work is divided in two and the cups are knitted separately finishing with the straps.
The knitting tension on needle size 3 is: 27sts x 44 rows = 10 x 10cm.
Needles and accessories:
- 1 circular needle size 3, 60 cm.
- 2 double pointed needles size 3
- 1 tapestry needle to mount yarn ends/stich in the bottom hem
- 1 stitch holder
- 1 measuring tape
- 1 stitch marker
Lang Yarns Cashmere Lace: 50g (50g) 75g (75g)
The Everyday Top is knitted based on your measurements, but an estimated amount of yarn is:
S (M) L = 75g-100g (100g-150g) 125g-175g
Please note: Cashmere is nice and soft to wear against the skin. Therefore it is our clear recommendation to follow this yarn suggestion. It cannot be guaranteed that the bra will not scratch against your skin if knitted in other qualities than recommended.
Frequently asked questions
How does the individual sizing work?
This differs from pattern to pattern, but oftentimes we ask you to measure underneath your bust and across your bust. Then we offer a calculation based on the knitting tension and this in turn tells you e.g. how many stitches you should cast on for your band.
Other times, it’s measuring the cups to your body and stopping when you feel they give the coverage you prefer. For some of our patterns we have created an Excel sheet where you simply type in your measurements and it provides you with the amount of stitches, cast-ons ect. Going forward we will optimise this and add it to more patterns.
How much support do your bras give?
The bras give the same support as a soft, wireless bra. However there are no strap adjustments in the patterns yet, so we generally recommend you knit the straps 5-10 cm shorter than you normally would, so they can ease.
Can I knit in other types of yarn than cashmere?
Of course you can!
We recommend cashmere because while researching many different yarn types, cashmere was the yarn that was the softest against the skin for the longest duration of time. Also cashmere on small needles tends to give a more tight knitted, elegant look, that we feel are perfect for our designs.But as long as you match the knitting tension to whatever yarn you are using, you can use whatever yarn you want.
Do you have video tutorials for your patterns?
