Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Get A Crochet Bikini Wet?
Many crochet bikinis are designed for sunbathing rather than for swimming. This is because, if the yarn is not waterproof, the fabric will absorb lots of water and will start to sag.
This can be very disappointing if you have spent a long time hand-crafting your own bikini, so be sure to check whether your yarn type is waterproof or elastic before you dive into the waves!
How Do I Wash My Crochet Bikini?
You should treat all your crochet creations like they were made of silk, and hang them up to dry after each hand wash.
If you want to machine wash your crochet bikini, then use a gentle cycle and ensure that no detergent gets inside the seams. Do not tumble dry your crochet bikini as this may cause damage to the fabric.
Do I Need To Line My Crochet Bikini?
If you are planning to wear your crochet bikini on the beach, then we recommend lining it with a thin cotton material such as t-shirt material.
This will protect the crochet bikini from getting sandy, and keep it looking clean and fresh. However, if you plan to wear your crochet bikini indoors, then you don’t need to worry about lining it.
If you want to look and feel your best on the beach this summer, then what better way than to crochet your own unique bikini set.
These bikinis are flattering, fun, and very creative, and your friends and family will be so impressed when you tell them you hand crafted it!
