Here's a couple pictures of a white bikini top I recently crocheted.  I used Berroco Cotton Twist in an off-white color.  Uhm, I may still line it... have to see about that   Cheesy  I'm working on the bottoms now (err, after I finish some other bikini bottoms)





Thanks for looking!

Nice job! What color are you going to line it with? I love the off-white of the top.

That's a great bikini top!
I think it's ok without lining.

Thanks!  I thought of lining it with "nude" colored swimsuit lining... but, we'll see!  I think I used HDC stitches... I guess SC would have given a tighter fabric.

They look awesome. I'm looking for a bikini pattern for myself (its nearly summer here yay!) did you use a pattern or did you wing it?

I didn't use a pattern.  I saw a similar style on a website somewhere and I just copied it.  All I did was make the square for the top part of the triangle, then I went back and forth across 2 edges.  I measured myself from my nipple up to how far I wanted the top to go and that's how big I made the square, corner to opposite corner.  Of course, it does stretch, so it's probably "taller" than I imagined, but that's ok.   Cheesy  The top had a natural slight "cup" to it, but... I blocked it to open up the edging a bit and that really flattened it.

This is another top I made using a pattern from online... and I didn't like the shape of it as much as the white one.  It's more flat and loose at the edges for some reason.



The pattern for that top is here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49984.10

Wow! That is beautiful. I love the white one too.

Erm....how do crochet bikinis hold up in the water...? (I'm guessing it's a lounging bikini only.. Wink)

I own a few knit/crochet magazines from the 70s; the bikini patterns always make me giggle because the models....are....in the water....you know, with crochet bikinis....hahahahahahhaha....See where I'm going...?

Thanks for the compliments  Smiley   I am not sure how the bikinis will hold up in the water and I'm sure I will never find out.  I have plenty enough "regular" bikinis to use for real swimming.  However... I could do a test in the shower... haha.
