This cozy bralette is worked in comfy ribbing throughout, great for summer as a top or winter as an adorable under layer. Fingering weight yarn provides lots of softness and stretch for a delicate basic you’ll never want to take off.

All of my designs are #sizeinclusive through a 62” bust, including ease.

SIZES:
XS (S, M, L, 1XL)(2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL) to fit bust measurement of:
28-30 (32-34, 36-38, 40-42, 44-46)(48-50, 52-54, 56-58, 60-62)”
71-76 (81-86, 91.5-96.5, 101.5-106.5, 111.5-117){122-127, 132-137, 142-147, 152-158}cm

Actual measurement of finished garment at bust (unstretched):
19 (23, 27, 31, 35){39, 43, 47, 51}“
48.5 (58.5, 68.5, 78.5, 89){99, 109, 119.5, 129.5}cm

For a fitted bralette, choose a size with 9-11”/23-28cm of negative ease.

Materials:
Fingering weight yarn, circular needles, stitch markers, scrap yarn or stitch holders, removable stitch markers, extra needle for 3-needle bind off, darning needle

Suggested Yarn:
Please use any fingering yarn you want! I used a plied light fingering yarn, but anything you can get gauge with is great. For budget yarn options, please see the fingering yarn tab of my Budget Yarn Options Spreadsheet.

Nox Yarn Co. Mars Sock (75% SW Merino Wool, 25%
Nylon/Polyamide, 4-ply, 460yds/100g)

Suggested Needles:
US 2 – 2.75 mm circular needles (hem)
US 4 – 3.5 mm circular needles (body)
If you’re not using magic loop, choose a circumference that is several inches shorter than the final circumference of the garment.

Gauge:
27 sts & 30 rows per 4x4” square in 1x1 twisted rib (hem)
24 sts & 33 rows per 4x4” square in 3x3 ribbing (main body)
(Note: Gauge measured blocked and unstretched. If you can get close to gauge while stretching it a bit, that’s fine. Measuring gauge in ribbing isn’t an exact science, as ribbing is very stretchy. If you want a denser fabric, feel free to knit the main body on smaller needles.)

Yardage:
120-175 (140-200, 200-265, 245-315, 315-375)(375-475, 475-550, 550-650, 650-800) yards
110-160 (128-183, 183-242, 224-288, 288-343){343-434, 434-503, 503-594, 594-731} m
