This Gimme Some Ocean Crochet Swim Suit Cover Pattern is the perfect summer project! It’s as easy as making two rectangles and sewing them together. I used a pretty lacy mesh stitch for the open and airy design.
Cotton is a great summer yarn, especially for the beach. Not only is it lighter than other fibers, but it’s works well with water. I chose black and white for the stripes in my swim suit cover because that’s what matches my swim suit, but any color combo would work. I think bright colors would be fun. You can leave out the stripes, or add more! There really are so many possibilities!
