Beautiful, clean lines and textural contrast, this minimalist tunic is the very essence of spring. The mix of sport-weight merino and fingering weight mohair/silk provides effortless versatility and drape for perfect warm-weather wear.

The tunic is worked in two main body pieces and then seamed at shoulders. Worked separately and seamed at the shoulders for added stability, the 5”/12.5 cm mohair border panels are seamed inside the edges of the body in front, back, and sides, so that the body pieces overlap the borders with decorative running stitch seams. Then the tunic is seamed down the sides from underarm to below the waist, leaving open split sides and approximately ¾“ / 2 cm of Front and Back overlapping the borders.
