I made myself a new swimsuit cover! The Sarasota Swimsuit Cover crochet pattern is a premium crochet pattern that I published in the summer of 2017. The swimsuit cover is made with Premier Yarns Cotton Fair, a sport weight (#2) yarn. It has a gorgeous lacy stitch combo that makes it breathable and still comfortable to wear if it gets wet. I wore my first one so many times and I’m excited to have a new one now!
Summer is HOT here in Florida, so I’m always looking for lightweight yarns to make something I can actually wear down here! Premier Yarns Cotton Fair yarn is pretty much perfect for Florida weather! This yarn is truly my go to for summer projects! I’m currently designing with it again!
The Sarasota Swimsuit Cover crochet pattern is an intermediate difficulty level pattern. The top has about 6″ of positive ease and is a bottom up workup. Also, the lacy stitches give it a good stretch. If you would like a more fitted look you can go down a size.
You will only have to do a bit of seaming at the shoulders and you can do that with your crochet hook, rather than a needle! Make the top as long or as short as you prefer. The cover can be made off the shoulder or fitted around the neck. It is really quite versatile.
