In Hollywood, especially when it is a hot summer day, it is fashionable to be dressed in a casual manner, but with natural talent and distinctive and stylish elegance which equals to Hollywood Flair!

Extended Sizing is included in the pattern -
XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL) - 31 (35, 38, 41, 45, 51, 55, 59, 63)” Finished Garment Chest

There is nothing more fun than to wear a natural fiber top that breathes, that has a wonderful drape (and thus hides any imperfections) and that gives you that flair.

This tunic is worked from the top-down and thus allows customized length fitting since you can try it on as you knit.

It fits with about 1” of ease around the chest and flares out on the sides toward the bottom. The overall length for the prototype is at the top thigh, but the overall length can easily be adjusted because of the top-down construction.

The photos show the sleeveless version, but the pattern also includes instructions on how to work the tunic with short sleeves. Sleeves are knit onto the armholes and are worked from the top down.

Since the gauge is 16 sts/4”, it is a really fast summer knit!

I have listed lots of yarn options. Most of them are DK weight yarns, but some fingering weight yarns, such as Rowan Panama or light worsted yarns, such as Berroco Linen Jeans work as well.
