The Simple Bralette - English
The Simple Bralette is a simple and comfortable top that can be used as an inner layer on colder days, or on its own when the weather is warmer.
The pattern for the Simple Bralette is easy to follow and is supported throughout with detailed explanations and links to videos, as well as pictures to illustrate the process.
The sizes given in the pattern are a form of cup size and not necessarily your regular size of your clothes.
In this pattern you can either use the calculation form to choose your size or measure yourself across the chest using our sizing (XS, S, M, L, XL). The band under the bust and straps are adjusted and knitted to measure along the way.

We suggest using the following yarn:
Gepard Cashmere Me (25g = 180m) 25g (25g) 50g (50g) 75g
Englegarn Cashmere Fine (25g = 170m) 25g (25g) 50g (50g) 75g
2 strands Gepard Cashmere Lace, (25g = 350m) 50g (50g) 75g (75g) 100g
NB! Cashmere feels delicate and soft against the skin. We therefore strongly urge you to follow the suggestion and use the yarn listed above. We can’t guarantee that the bra won’t feel itchy if you use a different kind of wool than the yarns suggested in this pattern.
The tension in this pattern doesn’t correspond with the tension in the yarn listed above. The reason for this, is that we want to create the best support possible for your bust, which means that the tension in our pattern is higher and the knit tighter. The cups are knitted on a 3 mm needle, while the rib is knitted on a 2,5 mm needle with a tension corresponding to 10 cm = 28 sts.
In this pattern we have created an excel sheet that’ll help you determine your size. You can either use this or you can also choose to follow the size chart below. The size chart is indicated as a form of cup size and may differ from your normal clothing sizes.
