Wolltraum yarn 150 grams 3ply Fingering Weight Yarn Color: Under the sea

Tapestry Needle
Stitch marker

Yarn used to make swimwear is subject to harsh conditions. The combination of full sunlight, salt from the sea or chemicals from a pool and suntan lotion can result in a the yarn fading or leaching color and shrinking or stretching. Wet yarn will also be extremely heavy and this will alter the fit of the swimwear. Thick or heavyweight yarn will be bulky and uncomfortable to wear. Crochet cotton is a good yarn for knitting and crocheting swimwear and is available in many colors. Cotton with Spandex is even better.
Consider lining swimming suits. This will help to ensure that the swimsuit keeps its shape--and preserves its wearer's modesty.

Make a sample square before crocheting the pattern. Wash and dry the sample several times and check for shrinkage or stretch. Make any necessary adjustments to the pattern before starting.

you, you will sl st from the middle to the left, then see how many st are left and start the right side from that point.
You will join your yarn and pick up the st closest to you from the front of your work and the furthest st from the back of your work, matching st for st you will sl st along the left side of your top, once you reach the last st of your bottom fasten off and count the left over st on the top.
You will now count that many st on the right side of your top and join ou yarn and start to assemble the second half of your bottom and top from that st. Fasten off and sew in all the loose tails.
