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 โ€“ 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, a seasonal guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. yarns. This collection will feature a new design every month, each in a different yarn according to the qualities of the yarn to match the season.
