Kina is an A-line tunic in 8 sizes (XS/S/M/L/1X/2X/3X/4X), that features an hourglass cable coupled on a reverse stockinette background. The bottom edge, armhole edges, and neckline are left unfinished to retain the elementary lines. Kina is knit from the bottom up in pieces, with a flared hem and gradual decreases, offering a loose fit throughout the body that transitions to a fitted bust with slight negative ease. While the garment is constructed with simple lines, there is a luxurious, rich texture to the finished fabric, inspired by the undulating landscape of the Scottish Highlands.Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement
