The Maya Tunic is a top-down garment, knit using four different colors of Machete Shoppe yarns. Brittany of Machete Shoppe is offering three different, gorgeous kits for you to choose from! Visit her site here to purchase your Maya Tunic kit before they sell out!

Knit holding two strands of sock or fingering weight yarn together, the Maya Tunic is the perfect garment to play around with color blending or melting. Choose from speckled, variegated or solids to create your very own, unique handmade tunic! The length falls just below your bum, allowing you to rock this garment with a cute pair of leggings, or try your favorite high waisted jeans to show off the deep, side-split hem. Choose your own knitting adventure and create a sleeveless or long sleeve garment as you knit down this top! You won’t get bored with this design which features eyelet detailing, bust and hip shaping as well as knitting in the round and flat knitting components.
