I love making quick and easy patterns that are perfect for beginners, like this Hanna Cheeky Crochet bikini bottom right here. A simple pattern that pairs so well with any top.

Oh, and speaking of tops. Did I forget to mention that it even has a matching top too? You can check out the free written pattern of the Hanna Mock Neck Crop Top here.

DESIGN INSPIRATION

 

This cheeky Hanna bikini bottom was designed to accompany its leading partner – the Hanna Crop Top. The design is simple enough to follow, with straightforward lines and ribbing to match.

With slim bands and a narrow back, it is light and easy to wear on any sunny day. As long as you’re using any of these stretchable yarns, you’ll be able to swim and feel comfortable all day long.

Cheeky at the back

As you already know, you don’t have to match it with just a bikini top. Unlike its matching counterpart’s style, we also have other great Crochet Tops that would make a cute pair.

CONSTRUCTION

Most of my bikini bottoms start with Half Double Crochet Stitches from the front panel down toward the back. Then connecting the side with simple and easy Front and Back post stitches is all there is to it.

Adding an elastic rubber band is essential and remember, bikinis need elastane too, so do use the correct yarn type. You don’t want them to start sagging, oh no you don’t!
