Bathing Suit Cover Up Pattern PDF (Beach Beauty Cover-Up)
This cover-up is made from TWO RECTANGLES stitched together, leaving room for the neck, arms and side slits. It is a simple and elegant design and will look fabulous worn at the beach.
The main body panels consist of rows that alternate between single crochet stitches and wrapped double crochet stitches. The wrapped double crochet stitches are explained in detail, just in case you are not familiar with them.
Trim rows alternate between rows of half double crochet stitches and rows of triple crochet stitches.
This pattern is written for one size, but I do provide a gauge and easy guidelines for altering the size.
Each cover-up rectangle measures 29” (cover up width) x 34.5” (cover up length).

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.
It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.
As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).
It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).
When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!
Home is now Toronto in Canada.
Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
