Hawaii Beach Cover-Up

Difficulty level: ** Easy

Free Cover-Up Crochet Pattern

This pattern is easy, quick to crochet and is perfect for the summer beach season. I used two strands of Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread. This has the benefit of making the pattern faster to crochet and also gives the cover-up better drape, complimenting any figure. The pattern is very easy to adjust in terms of length and width to fit your needs. Colors can be chosen to your taste... bright and sunny is best, of course! (shop for this yarn here!)

Size: one size fits most

Finished Measurements:
Top: 46” (115 cm)
Length: 40” (100 cm)

  • Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread (100% Acrylic), 371 yards (339 meters) / 85 gr, color Royal – 6 balls (MC) (shop for this yarn here!)

Thank you for this wonderful-easy to do beach cover-up. The pattern is very clear. It will be my next project for summer!

After doing over 40 rows I ended the row too early and ended up tearing out over 20 rows. I placed a marker at each end to prevent this mistake from happening again.
