    Hello Jane,
    This is a beautiful pattern and want to make it for my daughter. I have never felt a yarn that has hemp in it. Is it scratchy? She has very sensitive skin. What are the care instructions for this yarn. I could not find them on the website link. Please let me know. TIA =)
    Marion Niewald would like you to read..Simple crochet triangle scarf patternMy Profile

  9. Hi Marion you can use any 4 medium weight yarn that soft and gentle for your daughter skin for example lionbrand or darn good yarn or even paint box yarn with cotton content

  10. Marion Niewald says

    Thanks so much! I have used Lionbrand before, so will check into that. I really appreciate your taking the time to answer. Thanks 😀

  11. Hi Jane

    I ended up using a 10 mm crochet hook to get the gauge correct. Seems so far from what you used. Do you think I’ll have a problem?

    I’m crocheting along, looks like this will be a great project. Thanks for sharing it!

  12. Hi donna , It will be fine as long as it fit you perfectly. Because each person will have crochet stitch tension tight or loose. If i make this summer cardigan second time it would be a little bit different for my foundation chain i tent to crochet loose.
