I just came across this pattern:

Vintage Swim Suit

While I doubt it would hold up well in the water, I think it is cute!

It must be a British pattern as it calls for sewing thread and No. 12 needles...

Maybe a vintage suit KAL?  He he... if for no other reason than to say "I knit a swim suit!"

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!

NOT sewing thread ... that Albions is the brand name. The thread they mean is, I believe, crochet thread/cotton. It is definitely British, by the way, note in the instructions "wool forward", etc!!!

Cute - and it would stand up to water pretty good, probably, it is knit pretty tightly! But in today's world, knit it as a top would be most wearable.

My mom (b. 1944) has this horrible memory of wearing a swimsuit her mom (an avid knitter) had knitted for her to the beach when she was little (could have been c. 1948!).  She ran into the water and as soon as the suit got wet, it sagged right down to her knees and she started crying.  So, no, I wouldn't take a knitted suit into the water, unless it was knitted in lycra!  But yeah - cute top!
