(the right shade of green wasnt available on paint)
dont recall the exact thought i was thinking just before thinking ‘im going to knit me a bra’ but then i just sailed into it.
couldnt find an available pattern simple enough for me to understand.so i made up my own.
just took a moment to plan it first. ie structurally….and…supportively….
i didn’t have old underwires i could use (next bra project will have those) but i figured a halter(tied in 2 places, behind neck and back) should work.
so i knit 2 baseless-wineglass shaped pieces(but cuppish..ie curved et al not just flat knitted bits. sort of like in built darts) with a little piping like thing (i don’t know what the right terms are) and pulled a cord through those and so the 2 long wooly ‘wineglass’ stems from each piece tied behind my neck and the cord was tied behind my back.
said id take pictures and haven’t as yet, but i will ..in the not too distant future.
will give a more detailed explanation if any curious bra-less soul would like to know more. 5 years ago
