This Kid’s Swim Suit Cover Up Crochet Pattern is made from cotton yarn and makes it perfect for the pool or beach!
The main part of this cover up is made with a simple Net Filet Stitch. It’s open, airy, and great for summer wearables. Some cute details were added with the drawstring and tassel. My daughter picked out the colors for this cover up, but I think it would be so cute with in a bright, neon color.
