i too made the bikini top, but i wound up making it in kitchen cotton.  i had leftovers from a bag i made and decided to give it a try since it fit the gauge description.  it's been in the water as well and held up fine.  not to mention that even if i had bought the yarn just for this project it would have cost me three bucks.  i'm considering making the bottoms too, since i still have plenty of leftovers in all three colors.

It looks stunning!
What size did you make? because it doesn't look as small as on the model in the book Shocked

I made the b cup size, and as long as you're not jumping off the diving board this little number stays right where you put it.  When the cotton gets wet it pretty much clings to your skin.  Just make sure you tie it on tightly before you get in the water.

I made the same pattern awhile back with the new cotton Manos, but it's pretty shifty so I haven't worn it out of the house yet.  It's good for cleaning on hot days though  Grin

Who says stripes and plaid can't be worn together?

in my opinion the pattern was extremely easy.  it involves only decreasing, and a bit of crochet knowledge.  not to mention the effort is well worth it when all your friends see your sexy self prancing around in something you made.  give it a try!  even if you really mess up, the top only takes about 40g of yarn, at most.
