So pretty and airy for summer.
Super cute! Love the colors and drape.
😀 Thank you!
Hi! I just got this pattern as part of the All About Layers pattern bundle! I would love to make it in this yarn but it might be a while before I can order it. Could it be made in a DK weight gradient yarn? Would I need to change my hook size or anything? I think I have more than enough yarn to make it. Thank you!
Hi Kerry, and thank you for getting the bundle! You can make it with larger yarn, but I’d keep an eye on the width of the back as you make it – if it’s the same width, then I’d go with that hook, if it’s turning out smaller or bigger, then you might need to change hooks. 🙂
Worried about being a solid 3X plus size. I really like loose fits. How do I adjust? Also what if I want to use a very cool lite weight for southern humid summers. Suggestions. Thanks in advance!
According to the Craft Yarn Council sizing standards, a 3X chest measures 52–54″. This pattern fits up to a 68″ chest, so you should be fine!
The suggested yarn is indeed a very cool, lightweight yarn. 🙂
Three quarters the way through this project and have a bit of snag….
I sized down my hook and even though my initial chain measured 34” (89 chains), now that i am almost done (back done and right side), the width is only measuring 29” stretched out. I don’t think i can get it blocked to 34” wide. The cotton yarn i am using has some give but not that much.
Do you have any techniques or videos that would allow me to add some rows/stitches up the sides?
Thanks in advance.
Hi Kim! I do indeed! ♥ https://www.mooglyblog.com/adding-rows-to-the-side/
Awesome – thanks.
One last question: the pattern calls for the chainless starting double crochet – would i slip stitch into the top of the row after i do that stitch, or in this case would i chain 3 then slip stitch, and only do the chainless starting on the end of the row that i am not joining to the existing project?
Thanks again! I love all your work 🙂 you’ll Be able to check out my finished project on Ravelry user name kimikim.
The Chainless Starting Double Crochet is only for the very first stitch of the row – so you treat it the same way you would a dc, or a ch-3 dc substitute! 🙂
