To anybody who has knitted a swim suit:

Are they any good? Can you SWIM in them or are they more for lounging? Would I need to sew a liner into it or anything?

If you could suggest some patterns and a lot tips/ideas, that would really kick butt.

grrr betsy

well, i've never done it, but i assume that if you sewed a lining out of the stretchy-swim-suit-like material for underneat the knitted part and you used a thin, sport weight yarn in a light lacy pattern, you could actually swim in the suit.

Years ago--sometime in the '70s--I made a bikini. The top was two triangles on a string tied around the body and strings from the top of the triangles to tie around the neck--halter style. The bottoms were just like little panties. I didn't line either part but I did wear panties under the bottoms. The top worked fine when it got wet. The bottoms kind of let water gather in the back so when you get out you have a water bubble butt. You know what I mean? The bottoms seemed to stretch a lot which I wasn't comforable with but the top was fine. It was acrylic sport yarn if I recall correctly. Aqua. I thought I was really hot!
