This is the ideal sweater for pulling on over a summer dress or casual shorts. The curved front stays open to show off your bottom layer and the 3/4-length sleeves aren't too warm. It is crocheted in an overall pattern with a 3-stitch, 3-row repeat that can be worked from a chart or written directions. The sleeves are worked as part of the back and two fronts and then the three pieces are sewn together at the sides and sleeves. A final two-row edging is worked on all edges to finish. Finished chest measurements are 34.5 (39, 41, 4535, 48, 52.5, 55, 59.5, 64, 66.5)" with lengths of 21 (21, 21, 22.25, 22.25, 22.25, 22.75, 23.75, 23.75)". Kyrie was designed for a loose fit, worn with 4-6" of ease. It can be machine washed on delicate and dried flat. Berroco rates this Alison Green design as requiring intermediate skills.
Kyrie is crocheted in Berroco's summer-weight blend of five receycled fibers: 30% nylon, 27% cotton, 24% acrylic, 10% silk, and 9% linen. They are spun together into a DK-weight yarn that is knit here at 7 (dc, ch 1, dc) groups and 9 rows per 4 inches. The yarn is a tweed, for a casual, relaxed look.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- crochet hook size D / 3.25mm (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- stitch markers
- tapestry needle
