The beach is calling, but so is your yarn. What’s a knitter to do when sand and stitches both beckon you? Combine the two while you soak up the sun! Beach Bum cover up adds beauty to function whether wearing it as a short dress or side split skirt. Open shell lace graces the bottom while a clever moebius covers up top. The multiple tying options ensure it stays right where you want it while catching sun rays or splashing in the waves.
Constructed top down, seamlessly.

Style It: Moebi Knits 2020 Pattern Club all features “double” in some fashion. Beach Bum is no different. Double comes into play with the style options. Wear it as a beach cover up skirt or dress! Relying upon the beautiful stretch of brioche, one size should fit both style options.
