Umm I mean crocheted bikinis of course. I really want to make one. I did a search and most people say they use theirs to just lay out, but I don't lay out. Pales the new black folks, no really it is!
Anyone actually swim in theirs?

I made one for my daughter and one for our exchange student and they both swim in them. Key is to find the right stitch/yarn choice so theres no holes and it doesn't sag when wet so bits won't pop out Wink

It helps to use a yarn with some spandex in it, like Cascade Fixation. Elann sells one too. Lining is a good idea as well.

Thanks for the reply guys. I'll have to wait until I get some more 40% off coupons to go yarn shopping.
