Aurora Summer Fun
I wanted a quick to knit summer tunic type sweater that would look great in a summer yarn, and that would be great to wear over a pair of jeans or leggings. It is easy to short or to lengthen this sweater because it is knit from the top down.
It features raglan sleeves and a modified v-neck. The pocket is knit into the pullover, no seaming involved. The sides at the bottom are left open, with a 4” slit. The ribbing is worked in such a manner that does not pull together at the bottom, thus finishing off a slimming tunic look.
Aurora ~ is the he most kick-butt girl on the planet. She makes Chuck Norris whimper. Not only is she great and powerful but her beauty can not be described. The most beautiful girl in the universe. Named after the northern lights, she rains sunshine on everyone’s day. She is sexy and incredibly funny and caring. Great person to hangout with! .”Aurora? Oh yes… she IS epic!” * Source: Urban Dictionary of American Slang
