Sure, it feels great to lounge on the shore and curl your toes in soft sand... but it'd feel even better when wearing a handmade crocheted swimsuit! From string bikinis to tanks to Brazilian bottoms, making your own crochet swimsuit will come easy with one of these 5 crocheting video tutorials.
Not for the shy, these crochet Brazilian bikini bottoms boast adjustable side ties — which means one size fits many. Be sure to use the right size hook with this project, though; a Australian 2.5 mm hook falls between a US B/1 and C/2 hook.
Bralette Crop Top
The intricate pattern of this crocheted bralette crop top caught our eyes right away. The shell stitch bottom, the delicate stitching between the cups... what can we say? We're hooked!
Tied Racerback Biniki Top
While string bikinis suit the petite just fine, women with larger busts will find more support from a racerback crochet bikini top like this one. With careful measurements, this tutorial is suitable for intermediates and advanced beginners.
Shell Stitch Halter Top
For slightly more coverage yet the familiar bikini aesthetic, opt for a lengthened bikini top like this crocheted shell stitch one. With a plunging back and a delicate halter strap, this piece can go from out on the towel to out on the town in no time.
Double-Strapped Crocheted Bikini Bottom
Although this video tutorial for a two-strap crocheted bikini bottom is suitable for beginners, its stitches look anything but beginner — especially the stitch pattern of its upper trim.
