Etta is now available through Ravelry and has been updated to include the errata from the magazine issue.

Perfect for snuggling up with your favourite book, the Etta tunic will fast become one of your favourite knitted pieces. It’s a relatively simple design in terms of construction – knit in one piece from the top down – allowing you to concentrate on the pretty cable pattern, which is the same on the front and back.
Since layering is one of my favorite ways to keep warm, I designed a cable and lace tunic that is long and roomy with short sleeves. Aran weight yarn makes Etta quick to knit with no seaming involved. It is perfect to throw on and sit by the fire or to shovel the snow!
