For our honeymoon, I had made a bikini using Berroco Suede and this pattern. It was just something fun to do, and we were going to have a hot tub in one place, so I figured, why not?! I had to crochet it, because I didn’t know how to knit at the time…well, I finished it the day before our wedding, and never had a chance to try it on, so when I went to put it on to go into the hot tub, it didn’t fit at all!! It was the silliest looking thing ever!! :doh: I’m not sure who’s bottom they fitted that thing for, but it was all warped, and there was no way to make it work.
Well, with our 1st anniversary coming up, I wanted to knit one instead, since we’re gettting a cabin in the mountains of WV with a hot tub! I found a pattern in one of the Suss Designs book, that I hope will work, but I wasn’t sure what yarn to get. I really didn’t want to go for the Berroco Suede again, it’s not the cheapest yarn and my original suit turned out worthless. I considered reusing the yarn, but the funny hot pink bathing suit has some sentimental value now.
Do you guys have any suggestions of something that might hold up? The gauge for the yarn she suggest (Suss Cotton) is 4 st and 5 1/2 rows = 1 inch on #7-9 needles.
