Mojave Moon

I’m in love with the construction of Mojave Moon! Worked from the bottom up, it is simply a tube in the shape of a double V. Hip, waist and shoulder shaping are achieved by changing needle sizes along with some uncomplicated increases and decreases. The fringes are made by leaving long ends when joining colours - it couldn’t be easier. Make the Top or the Dress version from the same pattern or as I did, both!

Finished High Hip Circumference: 32 (34, 36, 38, 40 1/2, 43, 45, 47 1/2, 50)”/81 (86, 91.5, 96.5, 103, 109, 114, 120.5, 127)cm
Note: High Hip is 2”/5cm below navel. No ease at high hip.
