I got this lovely handspun yarn from her. The yarn was 2 colour plied and had a pretty repetition of colours . I wanted to accentuate the way the colours worked in the yarn, they had a kind of rythm to them. So I came up with summerbreeze. A very simpel knitted in the round top or dress. That all depends on how much yardage you have!
Yarn: aran weight probably, wool. I guess any yarn will do but I like the way the stitch sets off the self striping pattern and two colour plying in this particular yarn.
Needles: circular 4 mm /6 mm
Yardage: 120 meter (131 yards). This is enough for a top for a 4 year old. I wanted to make a dress, but ran out of yarn. So more yardage makes a dress, less makes a top. Both cute!
Measurements: I made this summerbreeze for my 4 year old girl
