Despite some last minute winter storms hitting, warmer weather is promised to be on the way. What a great time to start thinking about summer, and spend a few hours crafting something kitschy-cute for your beach or poolside wardrobe, before the urge to get out and enjoy the spring sunshine hits! These crochet swimsuits are sure to get you in the mood for some fun in the sun.
Crochet Swimsuit Patterns to Get You Ready for Summer
This crochet bikini top gives you a wonderful opportunity to play with color. Although it isn't a modest design, and comes in sizes 36/38 and 40/42 to fit the majority of B and C cups, a more advanced crocheter can easily alter the pattern to accommodate a variety of sizes or provide a little more coverage.
Vintage is in, and this classic crochet bikini is no exception! Best of all, this pattern comes with an accompanying monokini. Who doesn't love a little something extra thrown in?
This crochet bikini top has such gorgeous detail. Wouldn't it be perfect for an afternoon barbecue or a summer festival? The bottom edge allows you freedom to decorate, so choose your favorite beads and get crafting!
Sizzling Pineapple Crochet Monokini
This is the shining star of crochet monokinis. It is similar to the one that was seen on one of the Kardashians. Sara Dudek offers this pattern and she calls it the "Sweetheart Swimsuit," which I think fits. This is an intermediate crochet pattern and comes in sizes S-L. There are other untested, unsized similar free patterns out there like this, but I would use it at your own risk! If it were up to me I'd go with the tested multi-sized pattern that doesn't come with a disclaimer.

This bikini crochet pattern is a bit more delicate than the others. The crocheted lace gives it a feminine look and isn't bulky. It comes in sizes S-XL and requires a 3mm crochet hook. I could definitely see myself lounging around the pool in this one ... though I advise not to go in the water wearing an unlined crochet swimsuit!

This bikini looks very comfortable to me. I think it's the wide banded crochet square bottoms and the soft look of the yarn that was used. I am a fan of side tie bottoms as well because it gives a more custom fit. This is another great design by Fabi Correa, definitely my favorite crochet swimwear designer right now! She also makes finished pieces too.
This gorgeous one piece is ready to go. It's close to the pineapple one piece but has a unique look all its own. The benefit is that the cups and bottoms are lined, so technically this is water ready!
