I like this patterns look and I had already suitable yarn to it.

November 8th: I knitted the swatch and started to knit back and front of the tunic.
November 19th: I started to knit first sleeve.
November 21st: I finished first sleeve and started second.
November 23rd: I finished second sleeve.
November 24th: I blocked pieces.
November 26th: I sewed sleeves to the body and started to knit collar.
November 28th: I finished collar.

I decided to knit front and the back in the round.
I made long sleeves and added a cable in them. Sleeves I knitted also in the round.
For the collar I picked 104 s and knitted stockinette 10 cm. Then I increased 10 s. When collar was 20 cmand 25 cm I also increased 10 s. After last increasings I knitted 3 rounds garter stitch. Then I bind off.

I like this. It is just right size and my modifications looks nice. Ecspecially collar is just that I wanted.

Tunic took 316 g yarn.
