I've been so inspired by all the cute summer tops I have been seeing recently! Between that and all the velvet yarn on the market, I just knew I would have to make a velvet bralette before the summer was over. The result was this super cute and super soft velvet bra that makes for the perfect lounge bra, as well as a great festival top! Keep reading for the free crochet bra pattern!
This velvet bra crochet pattern takes less than one ball of velvet yarn, so you will have plenty left over to make some super cute velvet scrunchies! You will also need a J hook and a measuring tape to make sure you get your velvet bra to fit perfectly.
Before you start, measure around your around your chest so you know how wide to make the bra. As far as the cup sizes go, an A cup will be 5 inches wide, a B cup will be 6 inches wide, a C cup will be 7 inches wide, a D cup will be 8 inches wide, and so on and so forth.
When crocheting this bra, you will crochet one cup at a time and then join them together. After crocheting the cups together, you will then chain the appropriate amount for the width you want and then join it to the other side of the joined cups. After crocheting the band, you will then crochet across the tops of the cup and then creating the criss-crossed straps before finishing. And that's it! It's that simple!

Are the cups worked in the round? I can’t seem to get them to come out right

Same here. ^^ Not sure if you’re supposed to turn, or work in the round? Not getting the right # of stitches either way.
its worked back and forth. it took me a minute to figure it out too. You turn when you get to the other side of the cup each time. I figured out that the number of stitches is the number of HDC on each side plus the 2hdc, ch2, 2hdc. so for example.....2. Ch 1, hdc 10, (2 hdc, ch 2, 2hdc) in ch 2 sp, hdc 10 (THIS IS ROW 2).... the number of total stitches is the 10 hdc on each side and the stitches in ( )....equaling 16 total (including the chain 2....Hope this helps. I just finished my bra today

Inaccurate cup sizing, vague instructions. Very disappointed.

If itdidnt stitch up right perhaps you did not use correct hook sizeand yarn to establish gauge, when this happens to me I start again and usually I can pick up where my mistake was made
