1. Crochet One-Piece Swimsuit
This one-piece has everything that you want from a good swimsuit: The design is cute for people of different sizes, with an openwork floral pattern in the center and a tighter stitch pattern for the top and bottom. Lining is recommended to enhance the functionality and wearability of this swimsuit.

2. Crochet Bikini Swimsuit
This crochet bikini pattern comes in three sizes — small through plus size (XL), working for cup size A-E. The beautiful ruffed top looks difficult, but is easier than you might think! The pattern comes with detailed instructions, photos and even a video tutorial so that even the determined beginner can make this cotton crochet bikini.

3. Strawberry Bikini
Looking for a sweeter, younger design? This Strawberry Bikini crochet pattern fits the bill! With instructions for sizes from baby through adult, you can make this for almost anyone you know. If you like the basic, modest design but don’t want all of the strawberry details, you can always leave off the dots, flowers and other details and alter the colors to a more sophisticated swimsuit palette.

4. Crochet Lace Bikini
The designer writes, “The flirty bralette has moderate lace coverage and is accented with scallop edging. The matching lace Brazilian bottoms have very minimal coverage, meaning they are very cheeky.” She hopes that anyone wearing this crochet swimsuit will feel beautiful in it; it is written for cup sizes A-D+ and bottoms extra small through large. Basic crochet stitches make this a fairly simple design with some detailed shell stitching for an extra feminine touch.

5. Passion Fruit Swimsuit
This crochet monokini offers a beautiful twist on the classic one-piece design. The bikini portions have tight stitching for maximum coverage. The center portion that makes it more of a one-piece design is slightly more open although still not too revealing. The pattern is available in three sizes with cup size ranging from 32″ – 42″.

6. Sweetheart Swimsuit
This crochet pattern is another beautiful take on the monokini. The center portion incorporates the classic crochet pineapple motif, allowing you to practice your crochet skills while making yourself a beautiful summer outfit. You can adjust the size of this pattern just with yarn and hook selection.

7. Aphrodite Crochet Bikini and Skirt
This three-piece pattern includes a skirt that can be worn over the bikini bottoms, adding extra coverage (and an extra styling option). The bottoms have a cute little “scrunch” feature that adds some flirt but can be omitted if desired. This crochet pattern is sized extra small – large.
