Pattern Description:

Summer is coming and there can be no shortage of bikini options. I created this pattern for the petite ladies using worsted weight cotton...works up swift on size 7 needles, just in time for a weekend at the ocean.

Pick any worsted weight cotton (I love Sugar and Cream solids) or an elasticised yarn for a more seaworthy bikini. Techniques are basic, and the pattern is easily customizable for more or less coverage. The itty bitty bottoms are cut very low, but feel free to add an extra inch in height at the hips. Sizing is for an average small, 34-36" hips and A or B cup gals, but easily adaptable. Enjoy! Please note, this pattern is sold for personal use only. Please do not distribute it or sell items made from it. That's my job!
