Ebb is a flirty throwback to the Sixties mini dress, with a marled gradient created by holding two strands of Loft in different colors together and changing one color at a time. It’s styled here with the purl side out, but careful finishing will make this seamless garment completely reversible. Slim-fitting Ebb is worked top-down, with short rows to shape the neckline and sleeve caps worked contiguously with the body. Clean rolled edges keep the focus on the ombre fabric, and small pockets add the perfect practical detail to this simple shape.
