Notes

This turned out perfectly! Not too tight, as I don’t like to wear form fitting tops anymore. I made it slightly less cropped - 10.5” to hem for my 5’4” height.

I alternated my 5 solid colours, choosing as I went, to get an effect I am super happy with. You can easily adjust the colours used to make all the larger sizes with this amount of yarn - 2000m -, as there is plenty of meterage left in the other colours to alternate with striping.

I am a 34-35 and made the 38 and and the fit is spot on. Super proud of this one. face_with_hand_over_mouth

I think I even have enough left over for the cowl or shawl version of this design.


I am using solid colours and not a variegated yarn like Andrea’s sample and am loving choosing my colours as I go.So much fun to make it up as I go along. nerd_faceyum

Cast on in my small batch British Northiam yarn and think this is going to be a firm favourite when done as I’ve been loving this colour combo for months and have been waiting for the right project!
