She wore an….
little crocheted bikini…
I’m digging all the crocheted “festival-wear” (a.k.a. bring back the 70s) happening right now. It’s a little fun (and pretty satisfying) to find something I like and say, “Hey, I might be able to make that!” and then a couple weeks later have something in hand. It’s not to say that the journey’s been at all easy. This bikini top is a fifth try with two types of yarn, and two needle sizes. In the end though, I learned two things:
- If you buy a pattern, maybe it’s a good idea to follow the directions (then it wouldn’t take so long).
- All the trials are totally worth it in the end!
This bikini top was improvised from this pattern by Julia at YarnHole. She makes a variety of bikini patterns (and she sells them too). Be sure to check her out and make your own! The summer’s not over yet! Let’s soak up a little bit more of that sun. And while you’re at it, why not make this bag to carry your other beachwear (like a pair of sunglasses?)? What other things should we make before the season comes to an end? Let me know in the comments! ❤
