Materials needed:

4.0 mm

Yarn-Red Heart Retro

Yarn Needle

Scissors 

 

Top (Make 2)


 

Ch 19.

 

Row 1: 1 hdc in next 17 st’s, 3 hdc in last st, continue working on other side hdc in next 18 st’s, ch 1, turn.

 

Row 2: 1 hdc in next 18 st’s, 3 hdc in last st, continue working on other side hdc in next 19 st’s, ch 1, turn.

 

Row 3: 1 hdc in next 19 st’s, 3 hdc in last st, continue working on other side hdc in next 20 st’s, ch 1, turn.

 

Row 4: 1 hdc in next 20 st’s, 3 hdc in last st, continue working on other side hdc in next 21 st’s, ch 1, turn.

 

Row 5: 1 hdc in next 21 st’s, 3 hdc in last st, continue working on other side hdc in next 22 st’s, ch 1, turn.

 

Row 6: 1 hdc in next 22 st’s, 3 hdc in last st, continue working on other side hdc in next 23 st’s, ch 1, turn.

 

Row 7: 1 hdc in next 23 st’s, 3 hdc in last st, continue working on other side hdc in next 24 st’s, ch 1, turn.

 

Row 8: 1 hdc in next 24 st’s, 3 hdc in last st, continue working on other side hdc in next 25 st’s, ch 1, turn.

 

Row 9: 1 hdc in next 25 st’s, 3 hdc in last st, continue working on other side hdc in next 26 st’s, ch 1, turn.


 

Now hdc across bottom and join the two together, once done you will need to ch enough to go around your back and join to other side. Once done hdc around bra pad and ch, be careful not yo twist. I chained 90.

 

1 hdc in each st, until top comes to your waits.

 

Straps

 

Now you find the middle st on top of the bra and count out 5 st’s connect your yarn in the 5th st with a sl st. I want my strap to be bigger, so I counted out 9 from the middle with 4 st’s being on each side of the middle st.

 

Row 1: 1 hdc in the st you sl st in and in the next 5 st’s, hdc in another 5 st, ch 1, turn.

 

Row 2: 1 hdc in each st, ch 1, turn.

 

Repeat row 2 until strap is as long as you needed, then sl st to back of shirt. Now do same thing to other side. 


 

Closing Up The Side

First do 1 round of hdc so you can put st’s along the strap, then you need to count out your st’s and divide to get a whole number. Then do a round of decrease and continue to decrease until you have the side close to your liking. I had 68 st’s.

 

Round 2: 1 hdc in next 15, dec in next st, repeat to end.

Round 3: 1 hdc in next 14, dec in next st, repeat to end.

Round 4: 1 hdc in next 13, dec in next st, repeat to end.

Round 5: 1 hdc in next 12, dec in next st, repeat to end.

Round 6: 1 hdc in next 11, dec in next st, repeat to end.

 

 

 

 

 

Waistband:
Row 1-5: Back post dc in next st, Front Post dc in next st, repeat to end. Do not fasten off


Skirt:
Round 1: Count out your st’s, you will need a number that is divisible by 4. I had 109 stitches, when I started to make my skirt, I went ahead and skipped 1 stitch so that I would have 108 stitches to be divisible by 4. Once you have your number you will then subtract that number by one and that is the number of stitches you will have to crochet in before you do your increase. My number is 26, once I get to the 27th stitch I will do two half double crochets, chain 22 half double crochets.
