The Wrap Bra/Top is a cosy, classic piece of underwear in a wrap design.

This pattern includes both the pattern for the bra and the top.

The Wrap is knitted in cashmere wool which ensures that it will not scratch against your naked skin, as well as it is breathable. 

The Wrap is knitted from the top down and both cups and the body  is knitted after your own measurements for enhanced comfort and fit. The top/bra is first knitted in two pieces, as the cups are knitted individually.
