Which yarn should I use to perfect this crochet crop cami top?
Well this cute cami top is perfect for any yarn type for example acrylic yarn is great and so stretchy.
I use cotton dk weight yarn or 3 light because I had more leftover of them a bit. And the cotton fiber is not so stretchy like acrylic yarn but will give a good drape and nice weight and also comfy to wear for the summer time.
An if you girl happen to have any wool yarn that will work just fine and also any natural fiber content will work also.
Just incase you donot have any dk weight yarn on your hand you can also use any 4 medium weight yarn also.
