Happy Independence day! To celebrate this colorful holiday, I made a crochet bralette bikini top in red, white, and blue! I found this Lily's Sugar N'Cream yarn in nautical ombre and thought it was perfect. This bralette is great for lounging by the pool or wearing under your favorite tank top while enjoying the sun. As my Fourth of July gift to you, I am sharing my pattern!
To crochet a bralette, all you need is cotten yarn and a g hook. From there, it's pretty simple! The pattern I am sharing with you is specifically for a B-cup, but it can be changed to fit any size cup. Just measure your beginning chain to the size you want and work from there, ignoring any stitch counts I list. If need be, you can use an existing bra as a guide for how big or wide you should make your own crochet bralette as well.
So, without any further ado, here is my crochet bralette pattern:
