This sweet & simple summer knit is a thoughtful, wearable re-imagining of the classic bandeau. The design features options for creating a shorter, more fitted bralette with a ruched front, or a longer, looser tube top with more gathers. Choose either style or mix and match details for your perfect summer top — BLOOM is primed for a customized fit for your body and style! The pattern is worked entirely in stockinette in the round, and includes 12 sizes, horizontal bust darts, detailed instructions for inserting the elastic bands, and optional shoulder ties.

BLOOM was designed in Purl Soho Cattail Silk (618 yards/565 meters/100g), a light fingering weight 100% mulberry silk that is machine washable and creates a fabric with a gorgeous, buttery soft drape. Please note that all sizes will require an additional 30 yards/28 meters if you decide to add straps.
