Notes

The top is crochet, the skirt is machine knit.
I made some modifications:

  • I used pure linen what made the fabric a little stiff
  • The sleeves were lengthened to a t-shirt form
  • I changed the front neckline
  • Gauge was different to the given so I had to recalculate the measurements, stitches and rows.

I got the linen from the seller in 400g packages with four different color shades. So I had to mix up two different colors for the back of the top.
The crochet part is made from two threads, the skirt part with a single thread.
The shirt shape is formed by short-rows.

The top has a little lengthened after washing but on me it looks rather fitting.

Though I don’t speak any Danish it was easy to follow the instructions.

I will make the skirt in other colors or yarn, i.e. wool.
