Smart sizingSelect to view your size only with this pattern!
  • Aim for a 4 ply / fingering weight yarn that has a yardage close to 400m per 100g. Any kind of fiber can be used. Be careful with pure cotton – it’s often stiffer and bulkier than wool so you may need to experiment with hook size to achieve gauge.
  • My size L sample with 3/4 sleeves was made using Madeline Tosh Merino Light (100% superwash single spun merino wool, 384m/100g) in colourways Glazed Pecan, Saffron (1 skein of each) and Oscuro (2 skeins). Single spun yarn gives wonderful stitch definition.
  • An economical yarn for Australian and New Zealand makers is Bendigo Woollen Mills 3 ply Classic. I made my silver version using this yarn and achieved gauge with the same 5.5mm hook as the Madeline Tosh sample. This yarn comes in 500g cones for $37 AUD.
  • 5.5mm crochet hook long enough to hold a maximum of 12 stitches at a time. Adjust hook size to meet gauge. This hook will be used for all entrelac sections of the pattern (95% of the project). This hook can be a standard short crochet hook, or you may wish to use an interchangeable Tunisian hook to attach a cable to later.
  • Cable and cable connectors to attach to your crochet hook or a separate cabled hook. A 50cm cable would be long enough for all sizes. You will only need the cable when making the button band. If you need to use a different sized hook on the button band, I recommend you go up a size from the hook used on the entrelac sections. This will assist with preventing curl on the button band.
