This is a versatile design. I liked it as published but I adjusted the design to shoulder width and made a sleeveless top that fits close to the body. I toss it on over a tee (no belt needed) and feel much more dressed up.

First of all here's a link to a yarn weight chart: http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/weight.html Second the pattern doesn't specify yarn amount because it will vary based on your personal measurements. I just don't think the picture looks like lace weight yarn. It look more like a 4 to me, but you could certainly use a 2 or 3. I don't think I could use a G/6 with lace weight. I'm going to give it a try using some Sugar 'n Cream (4) that I've got with a G/6 and see what happens.

I love this top. I am trying to make it, but need a bit more information about the size of the yarn and the amount of yarn. Does anyone have any ideas about this?

It looks like it could be adapted to any thin yarn, since it goes by measurements instead of guage. I picked up some beautiful yarn at a close out sale, about the same weight as lustersheen, and was looking for a pattern to do something with it. This will do nicely. I love patterns by measurement instead of guage because you can adapt it to any yarn - just make up a couple samples until it looks pleasing

I have been to several yarn stores and they all say that there is NO Yarn that is a size"0"., even crochet thread, so EXACTLY was the brand of yarn used in this item? I love it and want to make several but until we find out the brand of yarn AND the amount needed(to make general sizes like S-M-L-XL) we are all stuck...PLEASE HELP!!

Maybe I'm missing it, but where does it say how much yarn/thread is needed? Yardage?

 

Jul 31, 2012

can you please let me know what brand of yarn was used?

This reminds me of a swimsuit cover up. I really don't see this as a maternity top.
