Q: Who has actually knit a bathing suit?
In my quest for the perfect bathing suit pattern I have read old blogs of people in the same search....ah, a knitted bikini (or suit)
Where are those people? Anyone actually do it sucessfully? And if so, I demand a picture of proof!

Not me
I won't be knitting ANY bathing suit for myself in this lifetime.

Well, sorry, no pics, and the suit is probably long gone, but when I was in high school (70's) I knit a bikini. The top was two triangles on a string and the bottoms were regular bottoms. It was good except that the bottoms would stretch when wet so I had to be careful getting out of the water. It was made of sport yarn, turquoise and I loved it! Good luck in your quest!

I just looked on Ravelry and there are quite a few patterns and people knitting them. Not near as much as other projects though.

Here's a few of the patterns that I found there.
Queen of Hearts Bikini from Stitch and Bitch Knitter's Handbook
Blue Suede Bikini for Sexy Little Knits
Lanikai Bikini from http://www.knitwhits.com/online_stor...is/lanikai.php

I would knit myself a speedo but I have far too much empathy for my fellow human beings.

Bah, let them suffer. I'd pay to see that.

I'm betting you'd pay more to cover it up

LMAO, and I`d pay to see it too! BUT a speedo out of scratchy wool would not go over too well. I have to wonder if the movement of swimming would cause felting... hmmmm (ouch).
