Notes: Tarmac is worked from the top down, beginning with provisionally cast-on straps. The upper front is worked first, then the upper back. The front and back are then joined to work in the round to complete body. Finally, the hem, armholes and neckline are finished with a contrasting i-cord cast off. Yarns A and B are alternated throughout to create single row stripes in St st.
