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.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

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
