• DK weight yarn (see table of page 3 for yardage)
→ I used Indigodragonfly DK Matter, 100% superwash merino wool, 280 yds/100g. Main colour (MC) is “Bait is Enough” [blue colourway] and Contrast colour (CC) is “Claw and Order” [orange colourway].
• 4 mm (G) crochet hook, or size needed to make gauge
Gauge: After blocking, your swatch should match the following measurements: 18 st and Rows 1-9 in pattern = 4” (10 cm)
This pattern is written in 6 sizes: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6). Choose your size based on the bust size range outlined in the chart below.
A note about yarn/yardage: Indigodragonfly DK Matter skeins are often generous in weight/yardage - the designer used only 1 skein of each colour for the size small. However, the yardage in the chart should be your guide when choosing how much yarn you need.
