Ok, so I wanna make a Kandikini, but I'm not sure how big I should make it. I wear a D, so if anyone can tell me, I'd be grateful big grin

I recently finished my first kandikini and I used 28 rows and theres plenty of coverage that way. however, be weary of completing the two triangles where they connect. I made two complete triangles so I could have a design piece in the middle where the two cups connect and that put them pretty far apart so I'm kind of spilling out of the middle. does that make much sense?

I find the best way, if you're making it for yourself, is to compare the size of it to yourself as you go, or make a test "strip", "spine", "center" (the first part you make when doing the bikini), whatever it's called to see what size you need

follow cellular mango, but instead of measuring next to yourself, measure against your own bra, its how I know that since Im an A cup, but 36" i actually need a size of a B or C to have optimal coverage

Typically for a D, the height is 28 beads tall. However, that can fluxuate since everyone's chest is different. You may need more or less. Just once you string on those 28 tall, measure it against your chest and see if you need to add or remove anymore beads.

I know you said you're a D, but here are the typical measurements for the other sizes for reference:

A cup - 22 rows

B cup - 24 rows

C cup - 26 rows

[as you can see, the next size up, it increases by 2 beads]

I hope that helps- Message me if you have anymore questions~
