Summer is here! It’s hot out, the pools and beaches are calling, and we’re ready to crochet more summer tops to show off our gorgeous tan!

This is a fun, and easy pattern for intermediate crocheters. All you need is to practice is the Solomon’s Grid Stitch (as that is the most complicated part of the pattern), and you are set! If you have no idea what that is, don’t stress it. I posted a tutorial and written pattern for this stitch last week. You can watch the tutorial here (opens in separate tab), and read the pattern here.

This is a 2-part pattern. You will need to make 2 bra liners before you complete this part of the pattern. The tutorial for the liner is a available here, and the written pattern is available here.

Let’s get our crochet on!

Joining the Bra Liners

Complete 2 Bra Liners using the included, but separate PDF pattern. Pin the Bra liners together, however you want them to fit. Hold them up to your body to make sure they will fit prior to crocheting them together. Adjust them as needed and pin them together again, if needed. 

Row 1: SC into the first stitch along the bottom edge of one liner. SC into every stitch along the bottom of the first and second liner in a continuous row. 

Rows 2-4: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into the first stitch from your hook, and into every stitch of the row. 

Row 5: CH 3, turn your work around. SK, skip 3 stitches, DC into the 4

the stitch. Complete the rest of the row as a Solomon’s Grid*.

*Solomon’s Grid: SK, skip 3, DC. 

Rows 6-8: CH 3, turn your work around. SK, skip 3, DC into the 4th stitch. Complete the rest of the row as a Solomon’s Grid

Row 9: CI 1, turn your work around. SC into the first 2 stitches, SC 2 into the SK. Repeat until you complete the row. 

Row 10: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into every stitch of the row.

Back Ties

You will need 2 buttons. 
Turn your fabric sideways, so the Solomon’s Grid lays vertically.

Row 1: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into every stitch until you reach the first row below the Bra Liner. SC 2 into the long stitches of the Solomon’s Grid.

Row 2 & 3: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into every stitch of the row.

Row 4: CH 1, turn your work around. Insert your hook into the first stitch from your hook and pull up a loop. Insert your hook into the second stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on your hook. 

SC into all but the last 2 stitches of the row. In the first (of the last 2 stitches), insert your hook into the stitch and pull up a loop. Insert your hook into the second stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on your hook. 

Repeat Rows 3 and 4, 2 more times so you have a completed total of 3 repetitions of Row 4. 

Buttonhole: 

Row 1: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into every stitch of the row.

Row 2: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into the first 2 stitches of the row, CH 3, and skip 3 stitches. SC into the next 2 stitches, then CH 3, and skip 3 stitches. SC into the remaining 2 stitches. 

Row 3: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into the first 2 stitches (3 if you crocheted the adjustment). SC 3 into the chain space. SC into the next 2 stitches. SC 3 into the chain space. SC into the remaining stitches of the row. 

Row 4:  CH 1, turn your work around. SC into every stitch of the row.

CH 1, then cut a long tail of yarn, and weave in any ends.

Long Back Tie: 

Repeat Rows 1-4 of the Back Ties, including the 2 repetitions. You should have a total of 8 rows by the end. 
Row 9: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into every stitch of the row. 

Repeat Row 9 until you complete a length that comfortably wraps around your back, and reaches the buttonholes of the Back Tie. The Ties need to overlap, so that you have space to sew the buttons to. 

CH 1, then cut a long tail of yarn that can be used to sew the buttons onto the tie. Line up the buttons on the long tie, so that they match the buttonholes on the short tie, and sew them on. Weave in any remaining ends.

Neck Ties

For the next section, you will work into the top 3 stitches of the Bra Liner.

Row 1: In the first stitch, CH 2, then DC. SC into the center stitch. DC 2 into the last stitch. 

Row 2: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into every stitch of the row. 

Repeat Row 2 until the tie reaches the back, centermost part of your neck. Cut a long tail end of yarn, long enough to use to sew the button onto the tie. Wait to sew the button until you have completed the second tie, so you can line up the button with the buttonhole for a better fit. 

Repeat Row 1 and 2, including the repetitions on the remaining Bra Liner. When you reach the last row, crochet a buttonhole. 

Buttonhole, Row 1: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into the first stitch, CH 3, skip 3, then SC into the last stitch. 

Row 2: CH 1, turn your work around. SC into the first stitch, SC 3 into the chain space, then SC 1 into the final stitch. 

Row 3: CH 1, turn your work around, then SC into every stitch of the row. 

CH 1, cut your yarn and weave in any remaining ends.
