Crochet Swim Cover

A friend gifted me some lovely fingerling yarn but I do not (yet) knit, so I decided to use it for a swim cover with teeny tiny crochet stitches. Ok, so maybe they aren’t that teeny tiny, but for me they were. It was exceptionally relaxing to be honest. I would like to try it in colors that I’m more accustomed to wearing, but these colors look festive for the beach anyway!
