Notes

Tip: you will need the SHARPEST NEEDLES YOU CAN FIND!!

This is the most well-written pattern I think I’ve ever made. So detailed and precise, and so many sizes options as well!

I’m wearing a sports bra here to make the top fit better. When I tried it on with my everyday bra, half a boob on each side hangs out, and half of the back band as well, so some further modifications are needed. The designer did update the width of the front panel and the armpit decrease rate to be less revealing, but I think the overall width needs to be wider and the V can start lower to shift the straps out sideways more.

Used size 4 needles for the twisted ribbing, and size 3 for the stockinette. This was the case for most of the testers, so I’d advise most people who knit either tightly or normally to try out going up a size.

I shortened the front straps by 1.5” and the back straps by 1”. Though now that it is all together, I would prefer to shorten the back straps by a total of 2” instead of 1”.

Weight after seaming: 119.5g
