It’s getting close to beach and pool time! ☀️ That means it’s time to make a new swimsuit coverup. 🙂
This is a fun pattern from Wilmade.com for the Beach Cardi Coverup. It’s a great beginner pattern and she includes sizes S-5XL! The coverup is made from 3 rectangles that are sewn together. She includes instructions for an optional belt. My belt is a bit different – I’ve included instructions on what I did below.

I used Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton yarn in Aqua with a J/6mm hook to stitch up my Beach Cardi. I love this color because it reminds me of Summer and the blue waters of the ocean. But if this isn’t your color, no worries – the yarn comes in lots of other colors! You can order a Crochet Kit here in your choice of size and color of yarn and it includes the free digital download of the pattern.
It’s perfect to wrap yourself in on those windy beach days or when you head in to your favorite beachside restaurant for lunch. It’s also great while you’re lounging at the pool sipping your favorite cold drink.🥤
To make my belt, I held 3 strands of yarn together and made a chain according to the pattern. Then I worked a single crochet in the 2nd chain from the hook and in each chain across. At the end of the row, I turned, chained 1, and worked a single crochet in each stitch across. Then I fastened off and wove in the ends.
I added fringe to both ends of my belt – using 2 sets of 3 strands of yarn folded in half on each end.
You can find other photos along with a video and links to a printable PDF over on Wilmade.com. She also has patterns for beautiful shawls, hats, and other wearables – you should check out her site. 🙂
This was a fun and easy pattern to make. Looking forward to wearing it on our beach trip to Destin, FL. ☀️
