I got two wonderful yarns as a Christmas gift from Kerstin and frieda. They are perfect for this tunic.
I especially like this kind of construction with pockets, because I can take my office-keycards and mobile with me.

After an unsuccessful attempt that looked awful, I made some changes in procedure

  • tubular cast-on
  • ribbing with tbl on the private side
  • It’s not a good idea putting increases and color change on a prominent place on the front (raglan line). So I changed the beginning of the rounds to the back and worked jogless stripes, see techknitter’s tutorial (pictures to follow). The raglan lines are now undisturbed
  • I didn’t work lifted increases but regular M1 slanted to the left or to the right depending on direction.
  • Added undrarm stitches for better fitting.

Frogged the whole piece because on one side I hadn’t fun to finish this project. Another point was that I wasn’t sure to look good in this dress.
The third point is that it would be pityful to waste such a fine yarn in a project you won’t like and wear.
