This pattern has truly all the information you'll ever need to create a beautiful top. There is a whole page of customization tips (page 8), imperial and metric units, a detailed schematic and sizing chart, as well as instructions on how to make it in another yarn weight, if preferred. This design is different from a lot of crochet bralettes, in that you are not creating "cups", but working side-to-side to crochet a short tank top. The tight ribbing allows for plenty of stretch, mimicking the effect of bust-darts by stretching across the fullest part of your bust while tightening at the rib-cage for a fitted bralette on all body types. If bralettes aren't your thing, feel free to add length to make a full tank top instead. The Bloom Bralette can be suited to your exact personal style!
