I lie, this is actually my second non-rectangular object. As I was making my first bikini top, I decided that the cup size looked way too big, made it a good 12 stitches smaller, and therefore made something much too vulgar for these parts of the internets.

Don't mind the provocatively placed spittle on the mirror

from http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTtwins.html

It's made out of some acrylic that I'm guessing is about 25 years old (I picked it up at the bf's grandma's).

I want to make bottoms, but all of the patterns I've seen are brief style and I don't want to make briefs because a) I don't want to deal with fitting them and b) I think they look hideous on me. Does anyone know a free pattern for string bikini bottoms, or have any advice? I'd like to make them to (somewhat) match the top.

That is way cute! I love the color and the shape of the bustline.

And this made me laugh out loud Grin:

This is cute Smiley

For the bottoms I would suggest looking at the Happy Hooker book from Stitch n Bitch, there is a crochet string bikini on page 85 that might help you for an idea of how it should be shaped, even if you don't know how to crochet.

You did a good job on your first shaped project Smiley

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

i did a thong, but it was lacy: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=211996.0
maybe if you just start from a number of stitches and go decreasing one at each side, each right side row, with stockinette inbetween, and use a thong that fits you as model?

I actually rather like the smallishness of it....I think it looks nice for a smaller bust size (which I have) so you've just totally inspired me to make one not less than 12 stitches smaller. Smiley

I made matching bottoms last night. I totally made up the pattern, basing it on the k2tog, yo, ssk pattern from the top, but I didn't have enough yarn to make it big enough to wear out (or post publicly  Shocked )
