This retro looking pineapple stitch top is crocheted using Cascade Ultra Pima cotton yarn. The Ultra Pima yarn gives this top great drape and makes a cool and comfortable fabric. The top is made in just two pieces, a left and right, with the body and sleeves worked sideways in one piece from the center to the cuffs. The two pieces are seamed together at center back and front leaving neck opening unsewn. Then the waist band is worked along the lower edge downward. Ultra Pima is 100% Pima cotton and is machine washable and dryable. The pattern sizes are XS to 4XL with finished chest measurements of 32" (36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60).
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- Hooks size F/5 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
