Crochet bikini top



I started a summer crochet project: a Crochet Bikini Top for Nelly Bo. She wanted one last year already, I started but never finished... So typical me. I found the project tucked away in a project bag and thought I should finish it before vacation starts.

I'm using Tilda yarn from Svarta Fåret. It is a 50% cotton/50% acrylic 4ply. I used to sell this yarn in my Yarn Shop but stopped importing it a couple of years ago. However, I do have some left in odd colors. If you're interested, visit my Yarn Shop page. I sell it with 50% discount which is the import price if not less.

I'm improvising, not following a pattern, but I have of course surfed for inspiration both on Google and Pinterest. There are so many bikini tops out there. So far I've just made the triangle cups and the idea is to join them together with a wide chest band that will tie or button up in the back. Almost like a crop top. We'll see how it unfolds... I'll keep you posted.

  1. I have been reading your blog for many months now but have not commented before. I'd like to say, you are an extremely artistic and talented person. Your photos and projects are so gorgeous. I'm happy that though you stopped blogging for a short while you've restarted. It's nice to read about a mum's life on the other side of the world 😊 ( I'm a mom of two teenage boys and I live in Bangalore, India )

    1. Hi Selina
      That is actually a very good idea... I might just unravel what I've done and do that, put a button at the front instead. Thanks for teh inspiration.
