Baby Doll Tunic
Which word describes it best-- enchanting? Graceful? Feminine? And have you ever seen anything that makes better use of a fine hand-dyed yarn? We thought not. The airiness and soft swing of this piece is as becoming as it is comfortable. 6 colourways of yarn are used, and the construction is intriguing: the skirt of the tunic is made of squares that are joined in the round; sleeves are knit in the round; bodice is knit flat. The whole is worked in garter stitch, “which creates an elastic fabric with a close, flattering fit,” reports O’Neill.
