On the Half-Shell

This sublime summer piece has one or two small details that render it exquisite in addition to madly wearable. The 'String of Pearls' edging is gloriously feminine and delicate, with a little short row shaping; the whole is easy to make in one piece. Looking for something to criticize, we frowned at first: no chart? But then we looked at the stitch pattern and realized that it was too dead simple to need one: one active row in 4 rows of st st is nothing, and there's nothing here most knitters haven't already done. Finished garment measures 32" - 48" (see data page). Lovely, relaxed, sweet.
