Sample shown in Bare Naked Wools Kent DK, color Beachglass

An easy-fitting tunic in ten sizes (XS to L and 1X to 6X) is streamlined by a tailored fit in the sleeves and neck, for a look that is comfortably loose, but never sloppy. This pullover features a center cabled panel of wonderfully earthy texture, a V-neck neatly trimmed to match the hems, and side vents for a smooth appearance. Knit from the bottom up in pieces, with seaming to provide structure and secure the shape for years to come.Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
