Pattern Description from The Best of Interweave Knits: “Hemp yarn is both comfortable to wear and easy to care for. Lana Hames has used four shades of sportweight hemp for this simple, lightweight top. Worked in the round from the bottom up with circular yoke shaping, the stripes are uninterrupted from hem to neck. Lana twists two stitches at each side of the body to produce ‘phony’ seams that define the boundaries between the back and front. The lower body, sleeves, and neck are edged with narrow bands of garter stitch.”
