~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Bright, cheerful and fun tunic is very comfortable and perfect for playtime.
But the main attraction that kids and adults will love the most is the kitty in the pocket.
You can get very creative with this pattern replacing who is peeking from the pocket, length of the tunic, etc.

To break the color patterning of the yarn, garter stitch LEGO motifs are placed in the center of back and front. Tunic begins with two separate pieces for front and back until the length of a slit is reached. At this moment pieces are joined for knitting in the round up to armholes. Front and back are separated again and worked to shoulders. Shoulders are joined by 3-needle bind off. ¾ length sleeves begin with picked up stitches around armhole and shaped from underarm to the lower edge. Included in the pattern, there are a few suggestions for easy modifications such as short or long sleeves, neckline finish with a trim or a cowl, and a pocket with a cat appliqué.
