Flutter in the breeze with an unconventional top in self-striping Medina. The back looks like a traditional tee but the front has a flowing center panel. The back, two upper fronts, and center are knit flat and then joined. An edging of single crochet and reverse single crochet is worked around the neck and armholes. Mariana was designed to be worn with approximately 2-4" of ease. Finished chest measurements are 32 (36, 40, 44, 48, 52)" with finished lengths of 22 (22, 23, 23.5, 24.5, 25)". Berroco has given this 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 knitted in this project at 5.5 stitches per inch in stockinette. 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:
- single point needles in US size 6 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- crochet hook in US size G
- 1 stitch holder
- tapestry needle
