When the weather warms up and everyone wants to go out to the beach and have some fun, a bikini or bralette is one of the cutest things to wear. If you crochet and have wondered how can you make your own version of a crochet bikini, then you are in the right place.

Crocheting your own bikini top is in fact pretty easy, and also works up pretty quickly. Most crochet bikinis use basic crochet stitches like single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet. In order to make a bikini top, you first need to determine your perfect cup size.

Extra Small fits: 32A, 34A, 32B

Small fits: 36A, 34B, 36B, 32C, 34C, 32D

Once you have picked your desired size for the crochet bikini, the next thing is to pick the perfect yarn for the project.

Best yarn to make a bikini top

Generally, when picking yarn for your crochet bikinis, think of the yarn that would hold shape, and of course, the color of the yarn is an added bonus. Keep in mind the factors that would affect your finished bikinis’ longevity. These include the water, sun which can cause fading of the swimsuit, chemicals from the pool, lotions from suntan, and so on.

The yarn elasticity – This is far more important as you want your bikinis to retain shape after multiple uses. No one wants to spend lots of hours crocheting a beautiful swimsuit and only wear it once as a result of it losing shape.

With all these beings said, Acrylic yarn base tops this list as it doesn’t hold much water and keeps shape for a very long time. A good example is the Red Heart Super Saver Yarn, which is used in many of the crochet bikinis listed below.
