Notes

Le Guin is worked in the round from the bottom up with 1 strand of Lunar and 1 strand of Maai held together throughout. Short row shaping lengthens the back and forms a rounded bottom hem. Slipped stitches frame each side of the Garter Stitch panel at center front. Work is divided for front and back at the armholes, and worked flat to the shoulders. Sleeves are worked flat from the cuff up, then set in and seamed.
