27+ Cute Crochet Bralette And Bikini Top Patterns 

Sharing is caring!

A crochet bralette is a wireless, fancy mix of a top with a bra that you don’t necessarily need to hide. What this means is you can either wear them on their own or as a crop top under a blazer.

Would you like to crochet your own bralette? I’ve curated a list of 27 super cute patterns that I’m sure you will love.

They are versatile small garment pieces that can be worn in a few different ways. Whether you are looking for a pattern to make a bikini top style bralette or a fancy layering piece to wear under a sheer top. Then this list is for you.

Materials needed to crochet a bralette

Most crochet bralette patterns will call for a small list of supplies. Making them super affordable to make. Usually, you will need to purchase yarn only. Since other materials, such as scissors and tapestry needles, are one-time purchases.

Buy if you need to invest in other materials and tools, here is what you will need in most cases.

Best yarns for crochet bralettes

The best yarns for bralettes are the lighter weight ones (fingering to medium weight) made of natural fibers. Such as cotton, linen, and bamboo. Here are the ones I’ve tried before and recommend.

Crochet hooks

Hook sizes that you need to crochet bralettes are usually the smaller ones. But always make sure you follow the recommendation in the pattern you’re using.

My favorite hooks are Clover Amour, I have the set below, with 10 sizes, and I love them.

Other supplies and tools

The other tools you will need are probably things you already have, even if you are an occasional crocheter. But this is what you will need for most patterns.

Do crochet bralette cups need bra inserts or pads?

Not necessarily! Unless you want to give your crochet bralette more coverage and support. In this case, even if the pattern doesn’t call for it, you can still easily adapt it your way.

Here is how you can do it.

  1. Chose a pattern that will be easy to adapt to insert a pad. Usually, cups designed with closed/solid stitches will work better to insert pads.
  2. Purchase a removable bra pad according to your size, you can easily find them online (see supply list above).
  3. Depending on the pattern, you can either sew on a fabric liner or crochet a second piece for each cup and sew them together. Then, insert the pad between the liner and the cup.
  4. Insert the pad as you sew the liner. You can leave a small opening if you want the pads to be removable, like in sport bras. Or just close it totally.
  5. Another way to add the pad is by crocheting a row of stitches to attach it. This is my favorite method because the pads will be secured in place permanently with the stitches. 

For this last method, see this video by Cassiekoy Crochet with great instructions.
