This is a free crochet pattern for a swimsuit Bea Cover Up that is ideal for all sizes and easily adjusts to fit most body types.

This swimsuit cover up is an offspring of the Bea Crop Top and is the ideal project when you are not sure of the body type or size of whomever you are creating it for.

It is fully adjustable because of the ingenious way you fasten this to your body. It is fastened through the sides and it makes it adjustable for most sizes.

It is simple to wear yet intricately crafted.

A treat addition to your upcoming summer wardrobe.
