Ballerina top is a DK weight summer top, perfect for little girls to dance around in. It can also be knitted in wool and serve as a pretty vest in the winter time.
The yardage is for the body, but you will also need an additional 215-450 yards of light fingering weight yarn for tutu. Mohair is recommended since its very light weight, but you can do it in any light fingering/ lace you want.
The top also looks good without the tutu and will stop halfway down the hips. Without tutu you will have a halter top, and with it is a tunic.
Wear and enjoy. Happy knitting:)
