Piecing Together – WS facing up- You will be connecting the two triangles together. Make sure the middle tips of each triangle line up. This will keep your bralette straight when piecing the triangles together.

To attach the triangles together you will be using SC.  Start by placing a stitch marker 5 stitches above your middle stitch marker on both triangles. Now SL ST the two cups together by starting at the middle ST, then SC thru each of the next 5 stitches across the two cups till you reach the 5th ST from the middle. Fasten off.
