Mesa tunic

I like simplicity, don’t you? This is a simple, yet stunning piece to create and wear~ It looks feminine on many body shapes. The yarn is really what makes this piece look so special~

The tunic can easily be worn over a dress or over a tank top or T-shirt with a pair of jeans, dressy Palazzo pants, a skirt or even leggings.

Worked in 6 pieces, the front and back plus 4 side strips that provide interest and closure. Knitting loosely is recommended.

Degree of diffculty: Easy/Beginner

Sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL.

2/2/2/3/3/3 skeins of Mesa yarn, a hand dyed and truly stunning rayon boucle in a fingering weight by Mary Gavan (400 yards each) available at yarnz2GO.
