Notes

Odessa is worked in the round from the bottom up, starting with a rolled hem and (k1, p1) ribbing, with 1 strand of Birch and 1 strand of Pebble held together throughout. Short row shaping creates a curved hemline. At the armholes, work is divided for front and back and worked flat to shoulders. Garter stitch armhole edgings are formed by casting on stitches at the armhole, which are turned in and seamed. A rolled collar is picked up and worked in the round.
