Designed my 1st pattern . . . A Bandeau Bikini Top
Actually it is my 2nd of the same style, but . . . this is the one I got my daughter to pose for a photo.
The center piece is a necklace that originally belonged to my grandmother who, if she were alive today would be 98 years old. I believe it's probably from the 40's, maybe 1950's, since she died in 1959.
I have the pattern written out (wrote as I knitted) and will post here if anyone requests.
