Crochet Gauge: width of 22 tr x 12 rows on crochet hook size 3 = 10 x 10 cm.
NB: Because of different crochet techniques used by the individual, the gauge may vary, so you might have to drop/go up a hook size to obtain the correct gauge.

Crochet info: Turn each row with 3 ch.
Increasing tips: Inc 2 tr by crocheting 3 tr in tr with marking thread.

Bikini top: Crochet each cup separately from bottom up. Cups are joined by crocheting together bottom edges.
Cup: Crochet 48-57-66 ch (inclusive 3 ch to turn with) using hook size 3 and Safran.
1st row: 1 tr in the 5thh ch from the hook, *skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 2 ch*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 tr in the last ch = 31-37-43 tr (the first tr = 3 ch). Insert a marking thread in the middle tr and let the thread follow the piece as you progress.
Remaining rows: Crochet 1 tr in each tr – see Crochet info – at the same time inc 2 tr in the middle of the piece – see Increasing tips above – on the next 4-4-5 rows = 39-45-53 tr. Now start decreasing in the middle of the piece: on first row skip 1 tr in the middle of piece, on the following rows skip the middle 2 tr. Continue the dec until there are 4 tr left on row – piece measures approx 18-21-25 cm. Crochet tie-string over the remaining 4 tr – 1 tr in each tr – until string measures approx 40 cm, cut the thread.

Crochet one more cup.

Joining together the cups: Crochet 1 tr in each of the tr at bottom edge on 1 cup and then 1 tr in each of the tr at bottom edge of the other cup = 62-74-86 tr. Crochet 2 rows with 1 tr in each tr, on the last row adjusting number of tr to 61-74-85 – do this by skipping the occasional tr.
Change to crochet hook size 4 and crochet next row as follows:
Size S: 5 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 tr in next tr, *2 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 20 ch-loops. Turn the piece, crochet sl sts to the middle of first ch-loop, 5 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop, *2 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 19 ch-loops.
Size M: 5 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 tr in next tr, *3 ch, skip 3 tr, 1 tr in next tr, 2 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 21 ch-loops. Turn the piece, crochet sl sts to the middle of first ch-loop, 5 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop, *2 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop, 3 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 20 ch-loops.
Size L: 6 ch, skip 3 tr, 1 tr in next tr, *3 ch, skip 3 tr, 1 tr in next tr*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 21 ch-loops. Turn the piece, crochet sl sts to the middle of first ch-loop, 6 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop, *3 ch, 1 tr in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* to the end of row = 20 ch-loops.
All sizes: Continue like this (i.e. 1 less ch-loop per row) until there are 2 ch-loops left, cut the thread.
Crochet ch-loops round the triangular front piece as follows, using crochet hook size 4 and starting at the top on the right side: 1 dc in the last tr-row before the ch-loops, 3 ch, 1 dc in first ch-loop, *3 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* round the triangle and finish with 1 dc in first tr-row on the left side.

Tie-strings for back: Crochet a tie-string form both sides of bikini top, using crochet hook size 3 and starting in the lower row of tr as follows: 1 sl st and 3 ch, 9 tr along the edge (2 tr in each tr). Turn the piece with 3 ch and crochet 1 tr in each tr. Continue until string measures approx 15-17-19 cm. Now dec 1 tr at the beginning of each row by skipping the first tr from previous row. Continue to decrease until there are 4 tr left on row and continue over these 4 tr until string measures approx 40-45-50 cm. Cut the thread and crochet a similar string the other side.

Tassels: Insert tassels along the sides of triangular front piece. 1 tassel = 2 threads, each 35 cm long. Fold threads, pull loop through ch-loop and pull ends through loop. Put a bead on tassel and tie a knot approx 5 cm from the top. Insert a tassel in every other ch-loop on both sides.
