Make this crochet bralette kit the next addition to your handmade summer wardrobe.
It might be a surprise that, as a mostly knitting brand, Moloneymakes best-selling pattern is actually a crochet one.
The Isabella Crochet Bralette was actually the second pattern I released way back when Moloneymakes was just a side hustle. The pdf pattern walks you through how to make a basic crochet bralette in either a S, M or L with a couple of pattern variations suggested along the way so you can tailor the top in a way that will suit your body best.
I’m pleased to say that this much-loved bralette top is now available to buy as a crochet kit!
What’s inside the Crochet Bralette Kit?
- PDF How To: A Beginners’ Guide To Crochet
- PDF Isabella Crochet Bralette Pattern
- 3 x 50g balls of Hoooked Recycled Cotton DK in the colour of your choice

(The two digital PDF files are emailed over to you once the physical kit is dispatched)
Can I make this if I’m a crochet beginner?
The Isabella crochet bralette is a great summer crochet project for those who already have basic crochet skills; if you know how to double crochet and half treble, you’ll have no trouble hooking up this crochet favourite. However, if you’re completely new to crochet and you’d like to add a cute cotton bralette to your summer wardrobe, the crochet kit also includes a Beginners Guide To Crochet PDF where you’ll learn the foundations of crochet and have a chance to practise your crochet skills before you start your bralette.
If you’re a seasoned hooker and already have a yarn stash and hooks at home, then the PDF download is for you. You can substitute pretty much any cotton you have in your collection, DK or aran will do the trick. The pattern is available instantly so you can grab your tools and get stitching in an instant.
Making your crochet bralette
Construction itself is straight forward. Firstly, the two bra cups are crocheted separately before crocheting together and adding the body panel underneath. Finally, a border is added incorporating both the tie loops and halter straps so you can weave and secure the bralette in place.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
The kit comes in a choice of 13 colours. The small and medium sizes use 2 balls of cotton whereas the large will dip into a 3rd so 3 are included in the kit in order to accommodate every size. The results of our spring/summer photoshoot with Bristol based photographer Weronika Karczewska have made me fall a little bit in love with mustard so the Sienna Ochre is a winner, but the Sevilla Peach, Oslo Fern and Granada Lavender all really catch my eye. I think the brighter, bolder colours are fantastic for festival fashion.
The top is super versatile and can be styled in a variety of ways. Wear it with jeans, a floaty summer skirt, or layer over a cute dress for an effortless boho look. I think it’s perfect for making a statement at summer festivals and parties and soaking up the glorious sun.
