This sassy tunic is knitted in a bulky weight yarn for extra core warmth. Seriously, this is so warm, I’m glad it has short sleeves!

The ribbing for the sleeves are worked first and placed onto holders. The body is knit in the round from the bottom up, working the pocket seamlessly as you knit. At the underarms the body is joined to the sleeve ribbing and the yoke is worked in the round to the neck, while working set-in sleeve shaping. There are some short rows worked at the tops of the sleeve caps, then the shoulders are joined with a three needle bind off.
