Moontide is worked in St st in the round from the bottom up beginning with a shallow garter hem. This makes for a quick and relaxing knit.When you get to the bodice, get ready for a bit of interest with a textured band around the body before separating for the Back and Fronts, and the Armhole shaping. The top is finished with a delicate lace panel worked up along the neckline.
