In order to crochet this swim cover you will also need to know basic crochet stitches and how to read a crochet pattern. You can learn those crochet skills with my other tutorials found here.
And of course, you will need the free written pattern for the Stroud Swim Cover, which you can get here.
This crochet swim cover-up is made by starting at each shoulder, crocheting to the bottom of the neckline, then joining the two back shoulders and two front shoulders together into back and front panels. You continue each panel for many rows to complete the length of the tunic. When those are finished, you will crochet the front and back panels together at the shoulders and sides to make a beautiful lace tunic for wearing over your swimsuit!
This swim cover was made with Cascade Yarns Hampton, a cotton and linen blend DK weight yarn. You can see all the colors available here. Most local yarn shops sell Cascade Yarns and can order what you need.
