Get ready for the beach with this smokin’ hot easy crochet bikini pattern for beginners! You guys, I am living on the edge with this crochet pattern! I’ve always wanted to try more clothing patterns, but I’ve always been intimidated by them. Well, no longer! This summer, I am branching out!
This easy bikini crochet pattern is made using simple stitches that can be mastered by a beginner in no time. I really want others to overcome their fears about crochet clothing pieces too, so the pattern was made using a simple design that’s easy to replicate. You know what that means? Bikinis for everyone! Ha!
Since acrylic yarn is definitely not the kind of texture you want on your body while swimming or sunbathing, I went with my favorite cotton yarn. It’s lighter in weight, breathable, and just a much nicer yarn to have against your skin. You can obviously make it in whatever color you want, but I went daring and used white.
I got the ribbing effect by crocheting in a back loop which, although it sounds difficult, is really easy to do and gives the bikini a terrific texture. Sure, you could do it all in a simple single crochet stitch, but since you’re branching out to clothing, branch out to a new stitch as well. Besides, it makes the bikini look amazing when it’s all done!
The trick with this pattern is that you just need to take your time and try out the piece as you go. If you want it higher in the back, add more rows. If you want it a bit more racy, eliminate a few rows. This easy crochet bikini pattern for beginners is the perfect way to start your summer crochet projects. And, if you need a top, try pairing it with the easy summer crop top pattern that I made for you too! You’ll be the hottest mama on the beach!
