This stylish hipster scarf is the perfect cover up for a crocheted bikini or one piece swimsuit. It provides a certain amount of modesty and is a very attractive addition to your beach wardrobe.
Although it is by no means limited to beachwear, this shawl can be worn over slacks or a dress to create a different fashion statement. Drape it around the neck or shoulders for an elegant effect. Work it in wool for another winter scarf.
This hipster wrap is worked in natural cotton fibre and decorated with sequins and a fringed edging. For a different finish, why not experiment with beads or tassels or even crocheted flower motifs,or a crochet butterfly. Embroidery and Cross-stitch are other options. Match it to your Brazilian Bikini!
