The Eva Tabard is a quick, colourful layering piece designed to add versatility to your wardrobe and skills to your knitting repertoire. Front and back are cast on using a tubular cast on and knit separately, then seamed at the shoulder. Contrasting icord edging and ties are added for practicality and interest.

Sizes
Sizes 1 (2, 3, 4) (5, 6, 7, 8) with finished garment chest circumference of 80 (90, 100, 110) (120, 130, 140, 150) cm / 31.5
(35.5, 39.5, 43.5) (47, 51, 55, 59)”

Select the measurement closest to your actual chest measurement. As the sides of the garment are open and caught with icord ties, the finished garment is designed to be 10 –15 cm/ 4-6” less than chest circumference. This is not negative ease – more like negative space to be filled with the textures and colours of other garments or skin.
