A study in serene comfort, Zephyr’s pretty lace panels encourage the breeze. Cap sleeves and gentle princess shaping add finesse, while practical pockets keep life simple for the woman on the go. The silk and bamboo fiber blend offers the best of both worlds; a subtle sheen from the silk that elevates this tunic to a dressier level, and gorgeous, airy drape from the bamboo that will make it your go-to for a night out. Because it is worked from the top down, you can easily try on the tunic as you knit, ensuring the perfect fit.
Tunic is worked in one piece in the round from the top down, with pocket openings worked as you go. Lace instructions are provided in both written row-by-row and chart formats.

Pattern Notes: The ‘skp‘ instruction in the Harebell Lace pattern in the written row-by-row format is correct as written, but it was misinterpreted on the chart and the chart’s Stitch Key as ‘ssk.’ Both are left-slanting decreases, with slightly different appearances but no impact on the overall outcome of the lace panels. In the Stitch Key and on the chart (p. 89), please correct the ssk to skp throughout.
