I think the crochet bikini is one of those projects that a lot of hookers (pardon the term if it offends) end up doing. Potholder, scarf, hat . . . bikini. Well, once I finished the top I realized I had no desire to make the bottom half so a lone halter it remains. I'm fairly pleased with it, though I doubt I'll be wearing it out of the house.

Huh, it looks almost like chainmail, I wouldn't have expected that. Awesome job! I really like the color. And kudos for being brave enough to post a photo.
I wonder if there's a way to make the edges pull tighter, without inserting a drawstring or something. Did you use a pattern?

great color!! but it doesn't look very supportive?? perhaps a wider band at the bottom would help??

someone once told me there's nothing wrong with wanting a fairy tale... everyone lives happily ever after.

I've seen these before, but I never would have thought to make one.  I really like the green!!  If you wanted to wear one outside or to the beach, you could make one with bigger cups to cover your cookies more.  You could also add a fabric lining with an underwire built in and a wider band on the bottom for support.  Great job!

Surround yourself with beautiful things!!

I did not use a pattern, I really started it on a whim. And thank you for all the ideas on how to make it more supportive!

Love the color, and the top looks hot on you. Smiley Hey, nothing wrong with having something that you just want to wear at home, for yourself or someone special Smiley
