And the best part is, it's totally wearable!  Nylon is both stretchy and quick-drying!  And I really wanted to be able to make something useful.  Anyway, here's my semi-tutorial:

Step One:  Cut the legs off of your pantyhose!

Step Two:  Cut the toes off of the legs.  (Sorry, no pic, but I think you all can follow.)

Step Three:  Cut those leg-tubes into smaller strips.  (I got 10 strips per leg, about 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide.)

Step Four:  Tie those strips together!


Step Five:  Knit away!!


The cups are actually two different brands of pantyhose, hence the slight color variation.  I ended up having to buy more at the dollar store.  My fiance was afraid nude 'hose would be too see through, so I had to buy more black.  

I used the waistbands as the halter strap and lower band.


Thanks for looking!!   Cheesy

Now it's a full bikini!!

thanks everyone!  I've been working away at making it a full bikini (bottoms, too), but I'm not sure they'll get done in time.  I'm doing my best, though, and will add them in if I can finish by the deadline!

I think matching bottoms would be pretty fun.  I bet they would actually hold up pretty decent in water too.  Tell me, did you attach the band with hose or a different type or string/thread/yarn?
