Bikini Top




I am participating in the Fish Along with the BitsandBobsGroup2. Someone had mentioned doing 2 fish at once,so I decided to try it. As I was knitting them, I held them up for my kids to see (they are always asking what I am making) and lo and behold, it was a bikini top on my needles. I have made a few fish before, but the two of them together at that point just looked like a bikini top to me.

So I decided to make one for my youngest daughter. It didn't take very long. I got it done in one evening, and I think I will make one for my oldest daughter today, but with fringe instead of the cute crochet edging. The one mistake I made was NOT making two at once, but each one individually, so I had to do some kind of weird seaming. I don't know how saggy it will be when wet, but it sure is cute now. I had half a ball of cotton sitting around, and decided to use that. There's still some left!

So here's a few pictures of my bikini top. My daughter is 4, and a very willing model! (Don't ask about the hair, it's a long sad story!)

It's adorable, and your daughter is, too. You clearly have passion for knitting and crochet and a great sense of color.
