This pattern can be found on pages 28-35 of Knitting Green: Conversations and Planet-Friendly Projects by Ann Budd, with contributions from some of the knitwear industry’s leading designers.

The tunic is made with an organic cotton and linen yarn named for Al Gore, who made global warming a household term. The two fibers are blended into a yarn that is comfortably breathable and has crisp stitch definition—perfect for a lacy summer top. Therese began by working the back and front separately for a few inches, then joined them together and worked in the round to the armholes, at which point she worked the back and front separately to the shoulders, shaping the armholes and V-neck along the way.
