386 Layering Tunic
Everyone loves this flattering tunic. It is worked in two identical pieces for the front and back. It is worked in single rib with a two inch band around the armhole. The stitch pattern and shaping will intrigue a novice but will hold the interest of an experienced knitter.
Originally written for Fleece Artist 2/8 BFL, this is a wonderfully warm and comfortable tunic for cooler weather. But it makes a beautiful summer tunic when knit in cotton and linen.
