This design is oversized, so finished actual measurements are approx. +5/6” larger.

You can use any Sport or DK/Light Worsted yarn worked using a 5mm hook for this pattern. I have used a larger hook size to give the fabric more flow. For my samples, I have used Lana Grossa Cotone Sport weight Cotton yarn for my top, and Stylecraft Sundae DK Cotton/Acrylic mix yarn for my tunic/beach cover. Gauge isn’t too important as the design is oversized with plenty of ease. There is also a formula given to adapt to any yarn weight or hook size.

You will need:
Sport or DK weight yarn - maximum needed eg. tunic with long flared sleeves approx. 600g/650g/700g/750g/800g/850g.
5mm crochet hook
Yarn needle
