Pattern Considerations:

  • The borders are achieved by working those areas with Melody and Bamboo at the same time. When working the borders, knit holding both yarns for the width indicated, then drop the Bamboo yarn, continue knitting to the other border, pick up a second strand of Bamboo and knit both the Melody and Bamboo to the end.
  • If preferred, work the body of the top with no shaping. This will require some additional yarn.
