Yarn: 8.5 balls of Debbie Bliss Cathay in colour Wedgwood/ Blue-Gray for size 3.
Needles: Addi Turbo circulars 3.5mm, 3.75mm (for the st st border, not in the original pattern), 4.00mm and 5.00mm
Crochet hooks: Pony 2.5mm (I can use it any time ;)) and 3.75mm for assembly, closing and fancy edges
Modifications: I recalculated the waist shaping for size 1-2 (1.5), because I do have an unconventional figure; knitted the st st border in identical length to lace border just because I thought stitching them together (grafting) will look better; I don’t like seaming, so instead of binding off the st st border, folding it in two and seaming to the cast on row, I bound it off directly to the cast on row using crochet hook and 3 needle bind off method
In other news, I am going to Russia for 2 weeks tomorrow, but I am hoping to blog from there.
