This tunic length top can be worn with or without a t-shirt, and is great over leggings, or a pair of jeans.

The tunic is worked in one piece from the bottom up in the round. The front and back are then worked flat and a 3-needle bind off is used to join the shoulders. The edgings are worked as you go so no picking up stitches.

A chart and written instructions are provided for the heart motif.

The ‘Love All Round’ bag pattern that matches the tunic is included. (Also available as part of the ‘Little Bags of Love’ e-book..
