The Musling Bra is an elegant and simple knitted bra, inspired by the ocean's clean lines and treasures. It is knitted from the side, starting with the band under the arm and working around to the back, creating a beautiful and functional shape. The cups are shaped with increases and decreases, and adjustable i-cord straps are added for both aesthetics and comfort. The design is tailored to individual measurements to ensure the best possible fit.

About sizing

The amount of yarn above is for sizes (XS) S (M) L (XL) XXL (XXXL). However, the bra is knit according to your own measurements, so it is better to purchase one more skein too much rather than one too little, since the yarn amount can vary according to band length, strap length and breast size.

The following table is therefore an estimate of the amount of yarn needed: 

Needles and Notions 

  • 1 circular needle size 3.5 mm (40 cm) 
  • 4 DPNs size 3.5mm
  • 2 stitch holders
  • 2 stitch markers 
  • 1 darning needle
  • 1 pant elastic with 3 cm height
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread / sewing machine
  • Rings and slides for the adjustable straps. These can be bought here.

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. 

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. 

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.

I have a bigger bust, will your bras work for me?

Our bras are meant as a soft, wireless alternative to regular bras.  If you need more support for your bust than a soft bra can give you, we suggest you wear a regular bra underneath your nakedknit bra.
