Strawberry summer top 1z

This came out beautifully – the pattern fits so well, and the yarn colors are stunning!  The combination of linen, silk, and alpaca makes for a beautiful drape in the fabric.

Yarn:  Camellia Fiber Company – 2 skeins Flax DK (50% alpaca / 25% linen / 25% silk) in Strawberry, and 1 skein (for stripes) in Rose Quartz

Pattern:  Clarke Pullover by Jane Richmond – the only modification I made was to shorten the sleeves

Size:  36″ – this should have given me 1-2″ of negative ease, but I think it’s a perfect fit

Needles:  US 5s (downsized to get gauge)
