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.
