Joining the Triangles together

We all come in different shapes and sizes, crochet is amazing for the fact you can manipulate it to fit your specific body type. Once you have your Triangles made you will now pick the size closest to your chest measurements, this is the measurement over the largest part of your breast and around your back.
Example if you made the larger cup but wear a small dress size you will follow the small st count.
Some may have a cup that is smaller and a chest measurement that is larger. It is possible that your Triangles won’t sit on your breast just right, no worries it's an easy fix. You would just need to add more to the center chain, in doing so you will need to take away 1 sc from each Triangle according to your size and add 2 extra ch to the center.
If it still doesn’t fit, keep adjusting, by removing more sc evenly from each triangle and adding them to the center ch, until you find the perfect fit. Don’t worry about the back ch, work that as written in the pattern for your size. Once you’ve found your best fit you will continue with the body of the pattern as written for your size.
EX: If you’re an A cup but your chest is a Medium. According to that size, the center ch has 5 and the triangles have 44 sc per triangle. You will take 1sc off from each triangle and add the 2 removed st to the center ch, Now you would have 43 sc per triangle and 7 ch for the center.
Attaching the Triangles and forming the front and back:


R 1: ch1, pick up 36 (40, 44, 48, 56, 61, 66, 69, 73) sc evenly across the bottom of your triangle,
Ch4 (4, 5, 5, 5, 7, 7, 9, 9), grab the 2nd triangle, pick up 36 (40, 44, 48, 56, 61, 66, 69, 73) sc evenly across the bottom of your Triangle, ch74 (84, 99, 109, 114, 123, 139, 147, 157), being careful not to twist, sl st with the ch1 from the first Triangle top of this Round.
