This is a bikini I crocheted for my daughter. We call it a shell bikini, because the top looks like shells, doesn't it?
Last year I started crocheting a bikini in terracotta and sherbet and half way through I realized I won't have yarn to finish it. It throw me out of my tracks, because I neither had those colors in my stash nor could I find them at my supplier. You can imagine how pissed I was. I was mad as hell because that was not the first time for me to start a project without calculating the amount of yarn I'd need.
So this year, I learnt my lesson (the hard way) and choose these two colors, because I have like a ton of them (ha!). Years ago I wanted to make a baby blanket with these two purples, but changed my mind and that is why I have a large supply of this yarn.
For the bikini I didn't use any pattern. For the bottoms I used Eva's panties and improvised with the top. It looks good on it except she's so skinny, she'll need a while to fill the chest a bit.And with this, I am officially done with bikinis. At least until next summer :)
