Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2007: “VK has always been ahead of the fashion curve, as this shapely number from almost a decade ago attests. This ribbed tunic by Mari Lynn Patrick is as current a silhouette as you’ll find. Allover multidirectional ribbing provides natural waist and bust shaping, while set-in sleeves, a wide V neckline and crocheted neck edging lend a polished ease. It’s knit in 100 percent ‘Cashmere Trend’ from Schulana/Skacel Collection.”
