Crochet :I 5.5 mm
Yarn : Lion Brand Collection Cotton Bamboo (Hibiscus)
As with all Doris Chan patterns, this one has the most perfect feature : no sewing! The instructions can seem wonky at first, but with stitch markets, patience and reading 1 line at a time, you can do it – promise.
In my classes I often say that treble crochets bother me. And it’s true… but I can’t deny that this piece is one of my favorites. The look of a shawl & the advantage of sleeves – so much more practical.
At any rate, with a free pattern by such an outstanding designer, you can’t go wrong. I made the smallest size (38) and since the dimensions are pretty generous, this would fit a wide range of bodies. As always, checking your gauge is a must if you want the proportions to work.
As for Lion Brand Cotton Bamboo, oh so happy I chose it! Super soft, doesn’t split and the colour is soooo rich. Pink with a slight blueish tint. Wow.
