Knit at the beach this summer!


Whether on land or sea, this is the cutest little bikini. Not only is it an adorable look, but it's also the perfect project to knit during the summer season. Easy to knit in either solid or any striped combination using Cascade Yarns Fixation, a fluffy stretchy cotton yarn.

Here's what other Knittingbag knitters are saying about this design, "I have finished my first bikini from your pattern and started a second. Per your recommendation, I did use Cascade Fixation ... It's a great design. My daughter-in-law [and son] LOVE it ... She'd been wearing a crocheted bikini that she'd bought from a knitwear designer in Chicago ... and she prefers the design of your pattern ... she'll be wearing it in the Aegean Sea next week when they travel to Greece."
