Bikini Baby Crochet Pattern

Bikini Baby Crochet Pattern

Are you summer ready?  The Bikini Baby is a fun swim suit to make for little baby girls for a fun summer photo shoot. I designed this fun set for a photography prop but if you made this set out of cotton yarn, you could turn into a wearable for water play. This set is a fun set to customize in any color scheme, I went with yellow with the "yellow bikini" stuck in my head and aqua blue was a fabulous combination. This design uses simple crochet stitches and quick to make! Grab your yarn and get ready to get hooked on the Bikini Baby

Adding the Accents:

Front Accent: Fold the top in half, find the center of the top and using a piece of yarn, tie several knots around the center of the top, make sure to tie tightly so that the center of the top is smooched together in the center.  Sew the accent button onto the bikini top covering where you made the knots.

Back Accent: Sew the Accent onto the back of the top, fold the top over and work the button through the stitches to use a button loop.

Ties (For All Sizes)

You have two choices, you can braid yarn and create or own ties or use ribbon.

To Braid the Ties

Cut 12 strands, each strand about 35 inches long.

You will use 3 strands for each corner, once pulled through, you will have three sets of 2 strands to braid with.

Front Ties (1 tie in each corner) Using the K Hook, pull the yarn through, under the 1st row and pull the yarn so they are even on both sides and braid the yarn until desired length is reached.

Back Ties (1 tie in each corner) Using the K Hook, pull the yarn trough, and under the last row and pull the yarn so they are even on both sides and braid the yarn until the desired length is reached.
