Crochet bikini

In the summer all my free time we spend on the beach. There you can see a lot of fashionistas in the magnificent bikini, different styles and different colors. If you want to join them, you should have this season crochet bikini. It's a fashion trend in 2012 beach season.
Before crocheted swimsuite was only to show because they were made of cotton and stretched in the water, now there is a huge selection of special elastic yarn for swimwear. Bikini made from such yarn hold the shape very well and dries faster than cotton one. It’s easy to crochet a nice bikini and then to the sea you will be the star!

I ordered the yarn through the Internet, a beautiful mint color. The model which I chose is simple, it has only narrow lace strip to decorate the bottom of bikini. The color and texture do not need any other embellishments. But if you wish you can decorate it with beads, crochet small flowers.
I still have this yarn so you can order this gorgeous crochet bikini

This is the crochet scheme of bottom and lace:

Scheme of top:

Along the edges of bottom and top of bikini, I passed the elastic thread.

I was at the beach in my new crochet bikini and I can assure you that all eyes were on me!

No way! :) I have the same yarn in this same colour in my stash! I made a skinny scarf and didn't like the result, so I put it away. Now, I'll try to make the tankini-bikini in light brown. Thank you, Ekaterina!
