Rib - 6mm
Main body - 6.5mm
I wanted to make this top for sometime but I wasn't keen on the Rowan colours apart from white and I have only just made a white jumper. However - when I saw this purple passion in Wendy Supreme Cotton I just had to order it and make it work. I ordered 16 balls but I only used 11. I think a nice chunky scarf will ensue at some point.
