This tunic is constructed of two rectangles worked side to side. Knit in fingering weight yarn at a loose gauge, this top is lightweight, drapey, and perfect for layering. Pleats and buttons circle the lower half of the tunic and are arranged on the diagonal, rising from hem to waistline. This project is great for anyone wanting to ease their way into sweater-making, or for those wanting a simple wearable top with a bit of detail.
This pattern can be purchased individually or as part of Beyond the Sea, an eBook collection of six patterns, including two sweaters; a shawlette; a convertible shawl which can be worn as a shrug, vest, or stole; a pair of lace knee socks, and a cowl. The designs in this collection are inspired by the sea and are suitable for year-round wear. This collection is part of the Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project.
