Has anyone made this?  My friend asked me to make her a bikini, and I'd love to try this pattern for her.  I'm really confused about the sizing that I should make, though, and I can't seem to find the yarn!! Is there an alternative frmo the 80/20??  I have a Michael's and JoAnn's near me, plus obviously walmart, but I can't seem to find any cotton blends.  Most of what I find yarn wise is either cotton or acrylic. 

Any one have any tips?  She wants hot pink with black trim.  And I can give sizes if someone can help me try to figure it out.

I was wondering the same thing.  Id like to make it, but just wondering how anyones else turned out.  Also the yarn has me confused.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

I'm in the process of making it- using acrylic yarn (worsted 4ply or something like that...I'm willy-nilly when it comes to yarns).
I followed the directions for "medium"- it seems to be a larger sizing that I expected. I'm a size 5/6 but the crotch turned out really wide so it looks like a diaper. Plus the cups are long, extending from underneath the boob to the collarbone.

I can't say for certain whether that's due to the pattern or my mediocre crocheting skills! Undecided
