Pictured in hourglass silhouette. Also available in a-line, straight, and tapered silhouettes. Please see our page on silhouettes for a full explanation of silhouettes in Customfit.
Lauren's sample was knit in Quince and Co Lark, an all-American 100% wool that's soft, sustainable, and that comes in a variety of great colors. I used the color "Iceland", at a gauge of approximately 5 stitches per inch. For a standard size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)'' bust at the same gauge, you'll need approximately 6 (7, 8, 8. 9, 9, 10, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18) hanks of Lark.
Amy's sample was knit in Habu Textiles N80 Wrapped Merino 4p in color "Green"; I liked a gauge of approximately 6.5 stitches per inch. For a standard size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)'' bust at the same gauge (and the same length/silhouette options), you'll need approximately 7 (8, 9, 9, 10, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 14, 15) cones of the Habu.
