I was featured on the THNlife blog and I couldn’t be more excited about it! I love Jessica of The Hook Nook and getting to collab with her and her amazing team has been on my “dream collabs” list for quite some time. I got the opportunity to share my Meadow Tie Top Bralette crochet pattern as a guest post. Working with her team was a breeze and getting to introduce myself to her audience was a great experience.

If you are a designer of patterns or blog about craft things, I highly suggest keeping an eye open for her next Maker Call for a change to apply to guest post on her blog as well! Enough about THN (for now), lets talk about this crochet bralette!

I have been waiting to drop this pattern for literately months and I am so happy its finally here for you. This top is perfect for summer. Wear it to the beach, the pool, a music festival, anywhere honestly! I have worn it with swim bottoms, shorts, and even full length skirts. How do you plan to were your meadow tie front crochet bralette?

This is an easy to intermediate pattern. I use only basic stitches and have progress photos throughout to assist you throughout the pattern. I cannot wait to see all the places you wear your new crochet bralette to!

I used 4 buttons roughly ¾” in size. You may choose to add additional buttons depending on your spacing preference between buttons and to account for any additional length added. Almost any type of button will work in this top as long as it can slide between the spacing of 2 HDC stitches.

I wouldn’t go any larger than the ¾” button size and no smaller than ½” to ensure your crochet bralette top will be securely fastened.

Using a needle and thread, attach buttons evenly spaced along one side of the front of the top. Make sure the right side is facing up when attaching the buttons.
