In the next few weeks I will be releasing free summer crochet pattern collections so you can prepare for the start of summer.
I love summer, this is my favorite time of year and I always look forward to going to my first lake or swimming in the ocean. For me this is the beginning of summer.
This week’s collection for crochet summer tops. I really want to make my own summer top! But I’m not one of those people who sunbathe on the beach in summer, so I have to go into the water. That’s why I’ve always worried about how to save water on my clothes. That’s why I did a lot of Google searches and got some tips on how to make my own bikini top save water:
Use Mercerized Cotton (You Can Find It): Obviously, this cotton has a little stretch to make it comfortable, but is still tough enough to be used in water.
Be careful with light threads. Some light threads (especially light ones) pull through the water.
If the bikini cup looks too sacred, use a smaller hook. The spots are in the water. So make it very tight to avoid surprises.
Try the bikini in the shower first. You can see when it gets too heavy or reaches too much water.
If the house isn’t running in top water, consider making it bigger and turning it into a superior home.
Yarn: Sugar & Cream or Peaches & Creme Cotton Yarn
I’ve put off making these because I always get so intimidated by them and also, I don’t particular like working with things that require me to make tight stitches. It’s hard on my hands and especially since I use smaller hooks. This Bikini is for a size small. Adjust your chain stitches for larger cups
