Handmade Bikini Bra -free crochet pattern-

Bikini fatto a mano: schema reggiseno all'uncinetto

This pattern is so simple, yet has the perfect shaping.  I was hoping to come across something so easy, I don't have much time to write my own patterns now, and alas, here it is.  Although the pattern and web page is in Italian, you can easily translate the page and the instructions are fairly easy to follow.  Keep in mind that: pb - low point (is a single crochet stitch) and mpa - half a point higher (is a half double crochet stitch).
