The Penelope Tunic is is a sweet little top with wonderful classic lines and neat, smooth finish. It can be worn as a shirt in the summer or as a vest in the winter, make it longer and it is a great dress and if you bind the bottom together it would make a great sleeping bag.

The smooth doubled over stockinette hemlines give the tunic a really professional feel. The chevron (zig-zag) pattern is perfect for showing of some special sock yarn that is too cute to hide in shoes. Also Chevron stitch is particularly good for stash busting and has a nack for combining yarns that you thought you might never get rid of in an unexpectedly pleasant way.

This sounds a bit vague doesn’t it? You can use fingering through to sport weight yarn. Just check your gauge and if you are happy with your swatch appearance then go for it, this pattern is very forgiving.
