Taunton is all about textures: tactile knitted textures and visual color textures. It mixes a flirty scalloped edge aith a mesh back and yoke and reverse stockinette front. The scalloped lower edge is worked in the round and then the front and back are worked flat to the shoulders. The shoulder and side seams are sewn and that is all the finishing there is! Taunton was designed to be worn with approximately 2-4" of ease. Finished chest measurements are 36 (40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64)" with finished lengths of 23 (23, 23.5, 24. 24.5, 25, 25.5, 26)". Berroco has given this Donna Yacino 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 reverse stockinette stitch. 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:
- 29" circular needle in US size 6 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- 1 stitch marker
- waste yarn to hold stitches
- tapestry needle
