Sorry, I think I cant post the pattern here, because its from a magazine and somehow not legal to copy it, I think. But I found a free patternhere --> http://crochic.tripod.com/bikini.htm. The Bra is just the same like mine, I just skipped the border and didnt sew the straps at the lower edges (only at the top) but made a border with holes (sorry, I dont know how its called in English) at the lower edge of the bra, using *dc+ 1 ch*, so I could pull the straps through the holes. For the panties I ch about 50, and worked in sc, decreasing 2 every sec row, until I had only 10 sc left, then began dec 2 in every second until my bootie was covered. It should look like this -->

I hope you can understand, what I mean...  Huh

Wow. Just, wow-ah. This is incredible! The best crocheted bikini I have ever seen! It's just beautiful.

I do have one question though. What needle size and type of yarn did you use? (I'm sort of new to crocheting..) Was the yarn and needle really thin?

Anyway, I hope your friend loved the bikini (how could she not?), and got use out of it in Sweden!

Cute! I love the colors-- very summery. What yarn did you use for it?
