PATTERN NOTES
This tunic is worked from the bottom up in the round. Shaping is worked by changing needle sizes and stitch patterns to manipulate gauge. Several gauges have been indicated for different areas in this pattern but the most important for bust fit is 22sts / 22 rows= 4 inches in stockinette stitch on US 7/ 4.5mm needles.

After completion of the skirt, short rows are worked to create ease for the bust. The armholes are slit openings without any stitches bound-off, and the two halves of the front and the back are worked separately to the shoulders. The bodice top has an eyelet pattern that is worked on smaller needles for the 3 largest sizes. The front edges decrease dramatically for a deep v-neckline and the eyelet pattern biases slightly for a lovely draped fabric. Garment should have 2-3 inches positive ease around the bust. Sample shown is 34 inches finished circumference with 2 inches positive ease.
