A thin layer of snow was covering our patio this crisp October morning when I was just about to publish this pattern. That reminded me of the things I love about winter. Having a hot cup of tea with lemon is definitely one of them and so the tunic got the name Lemon Slice.

Inspired by 60s dresses, Lemon Slice tunic features bold colors and a box pleat. The garment is worked seamlessly from top down and requires minimal finishing. Working fingering weight yarn with larger needles results in a lightweight fabric that has a nice drape.
