Crochet Watermelon Bikini Top

Crochet Watermelon Bikini Top

Not for me, but for my pretty petite neighbor. Fortunately, we were the same size so it was easier to make. This was modeled after this product from Urbanog.

I followed the pattern from the youtube video below and adjusted according to the thread that I used, which ended up having more stitches and rows. For this 32A size, I started with a chain which measured 2 inches, and from there proceeded with the rows.

Pine for Trees

Pine Trees, Polomolok
If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees.

The trees are God’s great alphabet:
With them He writes in shining green
Across the world His thoughts serene.

Trees, Polomolok
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
   ~Joyce Kilmer, "Trees," 1914
