~ so practical when a sweater is just too much ~

Whether worn alone or over a favourite blouse or turtleneck, this elegant cable and lace tunic will add a touch of special to any outfit.

This square neck tunic features an off-centre cable band on the front in a field of Stockinette stitch; a band of wrapped stitches acts as a visual separator and leads into the butterfly lace yoke. The back features only a single cable motif at the center, positioned just below the wrapped stitch row; the back yoke matches the front. Sides are slit from hem to mid-hip. The armholes are finished with a narrow moss stitch border and the neckline is completed with an I-cord bind off to nicely tie in with the cable design.

Knit top-down, the front and back are worked separately until the armholes are complete, then the work is joined and knit in the round to the side slits; front and back are worked separately again and finish with a Moss stitch border.

Armhole and neckline edgings are added by picking up stitches. No sewing is required.

If necessary, adjust needles to obtain correct gauge
US 7 (4.5mm) 32” / 81cm circular needles,
US 7 (4.5mm) DPNs or 16” / 40cm circular needle (for armhole edging)
US 6 (4mm) 24” / 61cm circular needle (for neckline edging)

Sizes listed are finished bust measurements of garment.

Skills Required
