Fluted Tunic

August 2011
DK (11 wpi) ?
22 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches
in stockinette
US 6 - 4.0 mm
936 - 1560 yards (856 - 1426 m)

I was inspired by the kind of summer tops I like to wear, simple silhouettes with lovely textural detail. I accentuated the pleats by working them sideways with textural stitches and a small amout of lace.

This top has a modular construction, the stocking stitch panels are worked horizontally and the pleats are picked up from the panels and worked vertically. The top is worked in the round for the bust area and for armholes, but knit vertically for the yoke lace.
