Notes

after laundering/wearing for a day:
-gauge = 18 st/4 in and 28 rows/4 in (so more like the 34 than the 32 I was planning but that’s ok)
-20-1/4” to underarm
-24” down the point
-10” armhole depth

I’d make this again -maybe in a fiber closer to the stated gauge (maggi?) and without the pockets….

5-27-11 - added a few (poor) self-photos. timing just wasn’t good today for anything better. but I LOVE this tunic! really everything about it - I think it fits great, it’s long (even enough to cover my ever-sagging behind :-), I wore it today and got compliments, and washing/drying make it better. really - what’s not to love??!!

5-27-11 - done! I ended up restarting this on the 19th, so it really took me just a week to knit. hope to get photos soon. had about 1/3 of the 3rd ball left.

5-15-11 - fell in love with the pattern - enough to rip the back of the zola vest I’d nearly finished so I could use the yarn! I need a finished bust size of ~ 32”. If I can get 19 st/4 in instead of the 18 stitches the pattern recommends, that will do it. I swatched with size 6 needles and got ~20 st/4 inches. So I cast on with 7’s and I’m hoping that works (yeah, I was too impatient for casting on to knit, wash and dry another swatch :-)
