Dk Sugarboo Bralette is a spin-off of the original version which is made using aran weight yarn. Dk version of the Sugarboo Bralette is very delicate, extremely soft and comfortable to wear close to the skin. Perfect for wearing under garments and cardigans in the winter. It is constructed from the top down giving it an advantage for adjusting the length of the body and straps so it fits your body just the way you like it. Stockinette stitch is used for the main part of the pattern and lifted increases are used in combination of stitches to create the almost perfect edging around front cups and back triangles. Please read the pattern all the way through before you begin.
