This tunic showcases a lightly variegated ribbon yarn. The yarn’s colors and textures display differently in the lace and stockinette sections, adding visual interest. A twisted cord belt allows the wearer to easily adjust fit and length.

Intermediate: Skills include reading charts,
lace knitting, short rows, and seaming. See
Techniques section beginning on page 146 for a
photo tutorial on working short rows.

Shown in size S with +2 1/2”/6.5 cm ease. Intended to fit with -2”/5 cm to +3”/7.5 cm ease at bust.

• Worked sideways in four pieces, from center
front and center back out to sides
• Instructions for lace panels are given in
written and chart form
• Because all edges are self-finished, new yarn
is best joined not at edge of piece, but at
transition from stockinette stitch to lace

There is no waist shaping, so tunic length
is easily changed: add/subtract stitches to
stockinette stitch section and/or repeats to
lace section.
