Coxa Bikini Bottom

January 25, 2018


 Wohooo finally!! I made a partner for the Coxa Bikini Top. Actually I made the pattern last year but I hesitated whether I should share the pattern or not because I was so frustrated with the edging. It doesn't look good and I kept changing the pattern. So I left the project for a while and continue to make another project 😅.

 Then I resumed to make this bottom, filmed the tutorial, started to edit the video and guess what happened? I lost some of the clips, I don't even remember whether I accidentally deleted or I did not filmed it at all. So I abandoned this project again because, one I can't get the edging right, two I don't have that one short but crucial part of the video, and three I still don't like the edging. 

 Days gone by and I saw this bottom lying lifeless, cannot come to life with his partner and my heart just can't take it anymore😳 So I picked him up, redo the missing part of the video, rewrite the pattern and now I am so happy at last he can be with his partner Coxa Bikini Top!...okay forgive me for talking nonsense I'm just happy for him haha.. So for those who have been asking where he is? He is here!!!!

 Anyway I hope you get the idea how to make a bikini bottom from the tutorial and if you don't like the edging just like me, try to create your own pattern but if you like it thank you so much.

😊Together let's make a better crochet bikini bottom😂

 And I made a table for the sizes so it will be easier for you to refer instead of including all the sizes in the written pattern. What do you think?

  1. I'm putting this in my project queue. I have the yarn (Drops Safran) and hook bagged so I can't use them for a different project. I have to outsmart myself sometimes or I forget and use things up! <3
