Barbie Doll Bikini Swim Suit Knitting Pattern

Joan Wettstein

Barbie Doll Bikini Swim Suit Knitting Pattern

I started out knitting panties for Barbie, then added a top. Knit in pretty colors, this pattern can be a bikini swim suit or a bra and panty.

The first ones were a little big, but I kept altering it until I was satisfied. In the picture, the beige one is the last one and the one that fits the best I think.

Materials:
Fingering weight yarn
Size 1, 2, or 3 US (2.25, 2.75, 3.25 mm) depending on thickness of yarn
