There's a very cute on in The Happy Hooker! You should check it out from the library.

if you want a really fun and simple pattern that looks complicated, with good coverage but still sexy, check this out:

www.crochetpatternc entral.com

go to the free pattern archives

go to beach crochet

from here there are several really great patterns. one i have used and modified a few times is the tassled bikini top. if you try these, most of them use a very, very small hook and thin thread, so it takes a few days. the "drops" collection is all really amazing stuff, but the patterns are oftentimes written in british english which is a little different. you can convert the pattern easily with a quick google search.

Hope this helps!!!

 I've been looking for one, too.
 I keep seeing (getting told) NOT to make it out of crochet cotton, because it absorbs a lot of water and falls off when wet.
 Just thought I'd pass that on...
