Using the square motif and trim patterns below as theme, make a bralette and underwear set.
For this exercise, I used 4-ply cotton thread and a 2mm hook.

USING DUPLET CROCHET FASHION MAGAZINE – BRALETTE STRAP
Here are six strap designs from Duplet crochet fashion magazine from the Ukraine. I highly recommend these magazines for those wishing to learn to modify and mix and match patterns to make their own.
For the bralette, I used strap design no. 10 (below). This is from Duplet Swimsuit Edition 3.
USING DUPLET CROCHET FASHION MAGAZINES – MAKING THE UNDERWEAR
I made the front and back of the underwear in one piece, starting at the front, down the crotch then to the back. I took my own measurements for the width at the front and back and used the standard sizes for the crotch panel. I used solid dc stitches, decreasing at the front and increasing at the back.
As guide to help you, I include snapshots of a bikini patterns from Duplet crochet fashion magazine no. 66. If you would like to learn to modify and create new patterns, I suggest these amazing magazines from the Ukraine and Russia.
Beautiful! What size of crochet needle/yarn did you use?ReplyDelete
Thank you Callan! I used a 2.25 mm (B) hook and 3-ply cotton yarn. I have also used 4-ply yarn and 2mm hook. The pattern can also be adjusted to fit the measurements you want. I hope this helps!ReplyDelete
Hi Fatima, Thanks for sharing such a lovely design. I found some of the Russian & Ukraine crochet very intricate. With the help of google translate manage to catch some but soon got loss in translation so abandon some of the earlier motif. You translated it so well making it so easy to follow. I will try to find in Pinterest the motif I have problem understanding & hope you can help translate it. Thanks again.ReplyDelete
You're welcome, Jamie! And yes, sure, please do let me know which motifs they are and I'll give it a try! :)Delete
super lindo voy a hacerlo graciasReplyDelete
This is an absolutely gorgeous pattern! Thank you so much for sharing! Although I'm an experienced crocheter myself, I find it hard to read and decipher this kind of patterns. Is there a way I can find written instructions or stitch abbreviations for it?ReplyDelete
Thanks Helen! I realise now that lots of people still like working with written patterns. I love written patterns too, it's just that they take longer for me to write because of so many distractions here at home. But I'll do my best - will make a new design for a bra like this and this time with written instructions. Thanks for the comment! Cheers! :)Delete
This is so beautiful thank you for sharing it but iam a beginner here in crochet world and I love to create this amazing piece can u spare me the written pattern of there's any please. ThanksReplyDelete
Oh I'm sorry there's no written pattern! But I will try make a new one! Thanks for the comment! Cheers! :)Delete
At last, beautiful undies that could be made with 100% cotton and be allergy free as well as very comfortable to wear.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to making myself some.
Thank you so much.
You are so talented Fatima!ReplyDelete
Just wonderful! A dream really!ReplyDelete
Q linda gracias Dios te bendigaReplyDelete
I'd like to know the written pattern. I am not too great going by sight.ReplyDelete
I'll be making a new design this time with written instructions. I try to make many designs with either written or symbol instructions. I just need more time! LOL! Thanks for writing in! Cheers! :)Delete
Hello and congrats! What decreasing tecnic are you using? I can't tell from the pictureReplyDelete
Hi! I use similar technique as in the crochet symbol chart near the end of the blogpost, just simple skip one (or two or more) stitches to decrease. I hope this helps! Thanks so much for the comment! Sorry for the very late reply!Delete
hi you do beautiful work, but iam not too familiar at graphs...is there any way you could do a written version of this beautiful set... i would really love too crochet it..thank you keep up the good work ...ReplyDelete
Hell you do beautiful work...i would really love too crochet this set,but im no good at reading graphs..so if by any chance you could write this down in a pattern that would be great.. thank you keep up the good work love what you crochet .. regards JennyReplyDelete
Thanks Jenny! I'll try and make another design and this time write out the pattern. Writing patterns really require a lot of time and focus, and there are lots of distractions here at the moment (farm animals! LOL!) But I'll do my best! Thanks so much for writing in! Cheers! :)Delete
it's so beautiful and great to see it on pictures! The only thing I don't understand is how you make the cups together.. Can you please explain?
Thank you! Oh the cups are not sewn together permanently, because this is a front closing bra, so I just use ties in the front! 😊Delete
It's so beautiful and great to have pictures so I can compare mine to yours.
The only thing I don't understand is how you made the two pieces of the bra together. Can you explain?
Hi Laura! Sorry for late reply. This bra design is worn by tying in the front, so the cups are not joined together in front. However, you can modify the design and join the bra cups in front, like this one to make this kind of bra design see this page - the pink bra which is tied at the back and over the neck halter style. I hope this helps! Thanks so much for the comment!Delete
