This Sand Dollar DIY Bikini Top invites you to a crochet beach party! Crochet hooks are just as useful for summer crochet patterns as they are for those lovely winter afghans. When the weather starts getting toasty and you're itching to get out in the sun, this DIY bathing suit will be the perfect fashion statement. A free crochet bikini pattern is a great way to avoid the exorbitant prices of today's high end pieces but still have a unique and personal style to go sunbathing in. Pair this sand dollar themed top with some blue jean shorts or solid colored bottoms, and you will be prepared for all the summer fun awaiting you.

My first thought was how could I feel comfortable wearing this in the water for vanity reasons alone. Then after reading the directions by the designer I see that there is a liner sewn in. Having the lining, I would not be afraid to get the top wet. This is a simple design and for those that live near the beach and visit often, this pattern will help offset the cost of those expensive bathing suits. Make one with fringes and one with out. Thanks for sharing.

Sassy, sexy. I like this sand dollar DIY bikini top. I would be afraid to get it wet but I can see it on the beach just catching some rays on the shore. I love the hot pink. Take the time to look at all the colors the designer used to create these.

This is the link to the full pattern http// . Since I live in Florida, I am very interested in obtaining an easy and quick pattern for bikinis that I could work on while lying on the beach. I would eventually like to make enough that I could sell some to the tourists while I am making them.

I have always had a fascination with crochet bikinis. I have a million patterns for them yet i haven't made one. I really love the way this one is designed and the tie string is a great idea because you can adjust it more for your chest. This is really pretty. I may finally make a bikini top.

Wow what a great easy pattern this Sand Dollar DIY Bikini Top is. I love the color and the idea of lining the cups are great. There are so many ideas for trimming this top out I can't stop thinking.. LOL The pattern is well written with great pictures to help. Thank-you so much for this free pattern that I know my Grand daughter will want me to make..
