How to crochet a babydoll top for beginners video tutorial.
Bra cup makes 2.
First, start making a bra cup by measuring your breast from the bottom part of your cup to the height of your nipples.
For example, mine got 3 inches then we will chain the number that will match the length of your measurement.
Mine 3 inches so I make 12 chains for the foundation. (example size fit cup A to B)
See full detail on video tutorial in the pattern construction part.
Start with ch 12 (cup a-b) (16 cup c,18 cup d) Make the cup.
Round 1: hdc in the second ch from hook. hdc in each ch across. In the last chain, you will make (2hdc, ch2, 2hdc) all in the same chain. Now we are on the back side of the chain you will make 1 hdc in each ch down the row. Ch1, turn your work.
Round 2: hdc in each stitch across from the previous round until you get to the ch2 space in the previous round. In that ch2 space make (1hdc,ch1,1hdc) all in the same chain space, and then make hdc in each of the next stitch from the previous round. Ch1, turn your work.
Round 3-7: repeat round 2 until you reach your desired width and height for your cup.
Repeat the same process for the second cup.
After we got 2 pieces of the cup we will join them together.
Join 2 crochet bra cups.
Now we will join 2 bra cups together by slip stitch or sc then sc in each stitch across the bottom edge of the 2 bra cup.
Add back panel.
Now we are going to add a back panel to one side of the bra cup edge by join the new yarn.
Then start to crochet sc in each stitch across at the end of the row chain and turn.
Then repeat to make sc row after row until then can wrap around your body or your desired length then fasten off.
Then join the back panel to the bra cup by sewing.
Add the bottom part of the babydoll top.

Put a stitch maker from the edge 2.5-3 inches, then join the new yarn and make a chain that will fit from your armpit to another side.
The example size is 30 chains your chain will be different.
