I named this pattern Southern Cross TOP (or Crux TOP) – after a constellation centered on 4 bright stars in the southern sky in a bright portion of the Milky Way. It is among the most easily distinguished constellations and is present on the flags of Australia, Brazil, New Zealand, etc. I can’t wait to wear this top while strolling down the streets of Melbourne and Sidney at night and gaze at the stars with my loved one. It will be such a romantic and educational journey!
The width of first 13 rows is considered as gauge and depends on the chosen size.
This crochet pattern is given for bust circumference 83-90 cm (32.5’’-35.5’’). I have included suggestions on how big should be your gauge if you wish to crochet this top for bust circumference 92-99 cm (36’’-38.5’’) and 101-108 cm (39.5’’-42’’). In this case you will need to use slightly thicker yarn and/or bigger hook.
Total yarn usage is 550 – 650 yards (500 – 600 m).
