Ginseng is a V-neck tank top designed by Sarah Hatton that is packed with intricate details along the neck and side seams with a 1×1 rib section at the top of the body. It comes with 2 length options – a shorter version or a longer version with vents at the lower rib. The deep V creates a flattering fit whether you wear it on its own as part of a beach outfit, with a shirt or long-sleeved tee as part of a layered look for warmth or as a splash of colour over a dress for an evening out.
The front and back of the vest are knit separately and joined at the shoulders with a decorative 3-needle bind off. The sides are then seamed using the mattress stitch.
Ginseng is the ninth pattern from The Almanac Series.
Based on the original farmer’s Almanac guide to the seasons, this collection acts as a guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. and celebrates each month of the year by giving knitters the chance to sample our Yarn of the Month, with a new design launch.
This year’s Almanac Series has a theme of herbalism to recognise the importance and heightened appreciation of maintaining health in these times.
In the second half of our first Almanac Series collection we embrace the Spring Summer season, where each month’s yarn has been specifically chosen for its qualities to compliment colder conditions. February is the month of Cirro, March is Acadia, April is Canopy Fingering, May is Luma, June is Amble and July is Meadow.
