Hi everybody, this is my first post to the crochet-department  Grin, I finished this bikini just yesterday, I made it for a friend who is moving to Sweden in a few weeks. if you are wondering why I made a bikini for Sweden ( seems more obvious to make a scarf...doesnt it?), its a runnig gag - my little cousin went to Sweden once and in fact, it was very hot, they all got sunburned and a hawaiian tan... so every time it was raining after that in Germany, everybody would say "Oh, Id love to be in Greece(Spain/Italy/Turkey...) now..." - but not my cousin, he always said "Mom, cant we go back to Sweden?". So I learned about the swedish beaches. They are there! For this reason, I made this bikini. Il give it to her tonight, Im so excited! I hope shell like it as much as I do.

it looks knit

No, its not knit, the panty is made in sc, the top in sc, too, but worked only through the rear part of the sc of the previous row ( that leads to a relief-effect). I found that pattern in the latest "Filati"-knitting magazin.

Thanks for the commendation  Grin!
