This is my second Ranunculus! I love my long sleeved version, but am looking into experimenting with cotton yarns for summer knitting. This yarn is a lot easier on my hands than the cotton yarns I remember from when I first started, soft and not overly splitty, and I really dig the color!
I knit with a tighter gauge to make a smaller top that fit more like a T shirt.
Ended up with about a 38inch bust circumference for the top/ 4 inches positive ease. 8.5 inches from neckline to bottom middle of sleeve icord.
Added four rows of plain knit to raglan increase section, one after each increase row, to make up for my shorter row gauge
Added an applied I cord to the short sleeves after I bound them off
Knit in stockinette for 18 cm below arms, then 8 cm of ribbing.
