This tank is worked in two pieces and seamed.
The hem uses both Cotton Supreme (MC) and Bamboo Bloom Handpaints (CC) in a slip stitch pattern where strands of the CC are carried across the front of the work. When three stitches in a row are slipped on CC rows, take care not to pull working yarn tightly across the work.
Shirotae is available as part of e-book Bamboo Bloom Book 2, and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
