ClaraTop is knitted from top to bottom in one piece. The top becomes wider by increasements (M1R/L) on which the back piece is knitted. Finally, add a string of any kind, either a thick string or the strings can be knitted in the same type of yarn as the body of the top. The ClaraTop is a fresh and light summer top.
Difficulty level: 1⭐️ out of 5⭐️
Needles: Circular needle size 4 mm (60, 80 cm, depending on growing number of stitches when knitting back piece)
(Double pointed needle size 4 mm for cord)
Tension: Two threads on needle 4: 10 x 10 cm = 18 sts x 22 r
XS (S) M (L)
Chest circumference (widest place, measured on own body): 80-84 (85-90) 91-95 (96-100) cm
Armpit to armpit over the chest, measured on own body: 40-42 (42-45) 45-48 (48-50) cm
Ease (negative): 5-10 cm, ie. 5-10 cm is drawn from your measurements on your own body, after which you choose the circumference below that fits these measurements. So, if, for example, you measure 45 cm above the chest (from armpit to armpit), a size small would be appropriate in relation to the measurements of the width of the work and ease.
Measurements across the chest: 37 (39) 42 (45) cm
The circumference of the top with the back piece (ie just below the chest): 65 (68) 72 (75) cm
The top measures about 5-10 cm less as a garment than when you wear it. You should choose the smaller size if you are standing between two, as it can also expand a bit during use.
My ClaraTop in the picture above is knitted in a size small and my measurements are 90 cm over the chest and 76 cm around the waist.
The yarn spending is approx. 110 (120) 150 (160) g of cotton yarn (Infinity Hearts Rose 8/4 (50 g = 176 m)) from Rito.dk, ie. around 4 balls of yarn (since it is knitted in double thread), but you can make do with 3 balls of yarn with specific sizes.
My ClaraTop is knitted in the color 81 – light blue
