The Changing Tides Beach Cover flatters all body types and be easy to put on (and take off) at the beach or pool. The Changing Tides Cover can be used as so much more. It’s also a great warm-weather cover. It would look awesome over a pair of jeans or a fancy dress.

The Changing Tides Cover is available in three sizes. Small/Medium, Large/1x and 2x/3x.

The top is created by crocheting two individual panels, that are then stitched together along the sides to create an empire waist. Short rows are utilized to make the front of the waistline thicker than the rest to create a shape that is flattering to every figure.

This design can also be customized in many ways.

  • the length of the sleeves (though this must be completed at the end, before finishing)

  • the thickness of the waistline (great for girls with a larger bosom or those who are tall)

  • the overall width of the top section (girth)

  • the overall length of the garment (you can make it shorter, or even go longer for a duster)

  • The bottom portion can be made fuller (great for those like me with a more ample rear)

  • and of course you can change colors anywhere that you like.

1 pattern repeat and 6 rows = 3 1/2” for top portion
