Meet: Gilly from The Gilly Pad.
She tested the Habena top for me using only one color with the original yarn: Wool and the Gang Shiny Happy Cotton.
She used 4 skeins for size small using 1 color.
Her’s turned out a little longer, most likely due to looser crochet stitches.
She tested the Habena top for me using 3 colors with the original yarn: Wool and the Gang Shiny Happy Cotton.
She adjusted the fit slightly by adding 1 extra row & reduced the number of decreases for the waist. Which is a easy adjustment to make if you decide to make this top.
