Knit in squishy Puffin, Butte is a big and cozy tunic with a textured raglan yoke in a pleasing knit-and-purl pattern. The simple body is worked in reverse stockinette in the round, starting from the bottom up—all of which translates into an easy knit that works up in next to no time. Instructions are included for tunic and dress length.

Shown in size 37¾“ / 96 cm with 4” / 10 cm positive ease. Now available with an extended available size range up to 69¾” inch / 177 cm bust circumference. #sizeinclusive
