The simple rectangular shape of this crop drapes nicely over a tank top or dress. Blush and Glow is worked from the bottom up, beginning with a garter stitch hem. Short rows on the front and back create a curved hem, accented on the side seams by ribbing which slightly draws in to shape the sides. The garter stitch chest and back have gently shaped shoulders for a flattering fit. A row of beads on the front of the neckline adds a delicate accent.
