Beach Cover Up Crochet Pattern

This kimono/beach cover up is so simple to make. I made this cover up using Lion Brand 24/7 cotton, in the colour Ecru.

The beach cover up is a cute piece for lounging by the pool, or summer days spent at the beach.

The beach cover up is made by crocheting two long panels and seeming them together.

Once the panels are complete, block both pieces. Then lay them out flat. Mark out the area for the head hole (check the chart below). Now seam up to the marked out head hole, fasten off and then seam the other side of the head hole.

Now fold the piece in half vertically and seam both sides making sure to leave an opening for both arms.
