Color Block Tunic

This easy-to-wear tunic provides just the right amount of coverage when wearing leggings. The dramatic color blocks provide a slimming profile and the lace waistband adds a feminine accent. The dual-colored cables on the sleeves twist the colors into eye-catching stripes. I wanted a longer design that would be easy to wear and fun to knit. Despite the longer length, the majority of the garment is worked in quick stockinette stitch, but it incorporates enough elements of change to hold the knitter’s interest.
