The Midnight Mexican Top, designed by Iron Lamb, is a stunning summer top, and can easily be paired with jeans, shorts or a bohemian skirt.

The pattern requires Knit Craft yarn, a cotton/acrylic blend, not available locally in South Africa.

But don’t worry! We did the hard work to figure out which South African yarn would work best. After a bit of swatching, we decided to use Eco-Fusion from Nurturing Fibres. Eco-Fusion is a bamboo/cotton blend, perfect for this type of top. It works up to approximately exactly the same gauge and it comes in a range of delicious colours.

We made a neutral one, using Vanilla as the main colour and paired it with Blush, Lilac, Watershed & Mint.

With a whole range of Eco-Fusion available, the hardest part would be deciding which colour to use!

The kits are for the yarn only and is available here: Midnight Magic Top

The pattern is available via Ravelry.
