Spice up your summer wardrobe with a fun top crocheted in Medina. It features an all-over openwork pattern and a simple half double crochet edging at the armholes, neck, and bottom. The front and the back are worked separately and then joined. Cressy is designed to be loose-fitting, worn with 4-6" of ease. Finished chest measurements are 37.5 (40.75, 44, 47, 50, 53, 56.5, 59.5, 62.5, 65.5)" and finished lengths of 22 (22.5, 23, 23, 23.5, 23.5, 24, 24.5, 25, 25, 25.5)". Berroco has given this Alison Green design a difficulty rating of intermediate.
Medina is a summer dream, with one warm color flowing into another. It blends 37% cotton with 36% acrylic and 27% viscose for a breathable yarn that makes great warm-weather garments. It is a DK weight yarn and is crocheted at a gauge of 26 hdc=4". Medina can be machine washed in cold on delicate and dried flat. Due to the print effect, some dye may release during the laundering process.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- crochet hook in US size D (3.25mm) OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- 4 removable markers
- tapestry needle
