from Just Jussi
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Aria

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basics (cast on and off, knit, change colours)
  • Knit in the round

Pattern Description:

Aria is a fun tunic worked in stocking stitch in the round. It has a cute pocket and rib accents at neck and armholes.

There are multiple sizes which make it a long lasting versatile garment that can be worn in autumn, winter and spring.

When it comes to the armholes I have suggested you use DPNs, but please use your favourite method of working small circumferences in the round.

If you search "magic loop" or "2 circulars" on www.youtube.com you will find a variety of excellent video tutorials.

I have include a photo tutorial illustrating my way of casting on provisionally.

Please use the "child chest" measurement to decide which size to knit, you can adjust the length from ribbing to underarm to suit your child.

This pattern has been test knitted and tech edited.
