why not?


(oh yes, hello by the way!)

Ok, bless the mess because i don't really know how to write patterns, so if you don't understand it, just say)

I used size 6mm needles and chunky fluffy acrylic yarn (think it was for babies stuff)

you need 2 cups and the tie ups, and 2 underwires, and some fabric that matches the wool to cover and attach the underwires

This makes a 34 DD

cast on 25 stitches
knit 3 rows (plain)
knit 23 stitches and leave the last two on the other needle
knit 21 stitches the other way leaving the last two on the needle, like making the heel of a sock
knit 19 stitches
knit 17 stitches
knit 15 stitches
knit 13 stitches
knit 11 stitches
knit 9 stitches
knit 10 stitches
knit 11 stitches

knit 21 stitches
knit 23 stitches
knit 24 stitches

knit till you have enough to make a halter strap.

You need two of these. I can't remember how i did it to make it symmetrical, maybe after casting on  i knit it purl. it was about a year ago.

Now sew the underwire. encase the underwire in fabric and sew round it, then sew this onto the bra cup.

the middle is simply a piece of yarn used like a tie, you could use ribbon if you were feeling exciting

To make the sides, i just took up some stitches from the side edge of the cup with my fingers (4 stitches from the first Cool, and finger knitted two loose rows, then put these on needles to knit the straps. you just tie it up

ooh how pretty, yes it has underwire. It looks a bit dumb without it

pixieskull, its pretty easy, i just made it up. I'll write the pattern if i can remember it (or just write it!)

I (probably like most people here, i'm guessing), make things using intuition and trying what works, using patterns is a bit alien to me, but i'm learning!

*squeal*  That's awesome!  I totally love it. Cheesy Did you follow a pattern or did you just make it up as you went along?

Haha! Do you plan to wear it as an actual bra? I imagine it would provide alot of comforting warmth? Good job on managing to put in underwire!!

That's one of the most creative designs I've ever seen.  I love how it has the underwire--something I def. need.  Please post the pattern!
