Poeta is a seeveless tank knit in the round from the bottom up starting with an I-cord cast on. Gentle A-line shaping with positive ease at the hips and negative ease at the bust. The tank is knit flat separately from the armholes up and is joined at the shoulders with a 3 needle bind off.
The centre front panel features a centre cable flanked by diagonal borders that are created by increases and decreases that also create a gentle vee at the hem and neckline. Additional finishing touches include applied I-cord at armhole and neck edges.
