This is testknit for Svetlana Volkova. Svetlana, thank you!!!!

Like her patterns and instructions. Instructions are very well-written and understandable. Patterns are very basic (this is advantage from my point of view) and you may use them to make something special for yourself.

This time I tried to implement my own idea using Svetlana’s pattern. Though I didnt change anything and only knitted bigger size (L instead of S) on bigger needles, my garment differs from the original by concept.

Inspite on seeming easiness, I made mistakes and needed attend to knit and purl rows when trasferring to round-knitting.

Photos from bottom to top: four bottom photos - this is my first adition of the tunic I didnt like because the edge was toooo streched (better to knit on smaller needles two last laces). Upper photos - the last version, I’ve shorted the length of body and knitted garter rows on smaller needles.
