I've been lurking on the crochet boards for a bit Roll Eyes and I'm finally adamant about something, enough to post about it. I would really really really like others to join me in crocheting a Brazilian bikini.

Here is a link to the pattern: http://web.archive.org/web/20041010020436/http://www.crochetpartners.com/Patterns/CPpat120.html

I am using Fixation (Cascade Yarns) and a 2.1 mm, even though 1.75 mm was recommended, I thought it'd be a bit too small..

It'd be really sweeeeeeeet if y'all would join in....

welcome out of lurkerdom!

I also love that brazilian bikini, but where I am there are no good yarns available.  and I don't have a small enough hook.  but I could do a sort of practice run along with you?

I've been eyeing that bikini, but I don't know how see through it would be :S Would you line it?? I'll crochet a practice one until I find good yarn.

Thanks! This has in fact turned out to be a practice run(unintentionally)...the yarn I have isn't the best for this project, or maybe I'm just stinking at it, but Ill keep at it. When it does work out, I def intend to line it.

Let me know how its goes for y'all....

I used this pattern for the top of my tank top: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32410.0

I haven't lined it yet, but I still plan to.

I definitely want to give this one a shot with you all!  Although--I may make mine a tankini to hide my tummy;-p
Now off to investigate yarns!

You could always line the bikini when you finish.  Actually, that might look cool.  If the yarn is light colored, and you want contrast, line it with a darker fabric.  I bet the ladies on the sewing board could suggest a kind of material to use.
