I needed a project while I am on vacation, easy! So I picked again this pattern.

Top. on US 4 Bottom up, circular from bottom to armsyes, then flat. 12 reps wide, added 3 riffles with “Be Sweet” extra fine mohair yarn on US 11, then they were sewn to the top. Edges around the collar and the bottom were crocheted with single sts to create borders.

Skirt 1. on US 5 top to bottom, 14 reps x 12 sts around the waist, 50 reps towards bottom (started at hips area) in trellis framed leaf pattern.

Skirt 2. On US 11 using “Be Sweet” extra fine mohair yarn cast on 300 sts at the waist, then increased to 500 sts in plain st. sts. Skirt looks very light and puffy. Was dyed with acid dye, color “gun metal”.

This project was knitted with all natural color yarns It was are dyed with jacquard dye “gun metal” color .
