This sweater can be machine washed on delicate in cold water and dried flat. Berroco has rated this Alison Green design as requiring intermediate skill level.
Ianthe is crocheted using Meraki, one of Berroco's summer yarns. It is a blend of 71% cotton, 24% hemp, and 5% polyester, which makes it comfortable for even the hottest days. The cotton and hemp take the dye slightly differently, plus the yarn is thick and thin, so the finished fabric has a wonderful texture with subtle color variations.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. You will also need:
- crochet hook size F (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)If you changed hook size above to get gauge, adjust hook size below
- crochet hook size D
