Pattern Description:

A fabulous lightweight tunic, perfect to wear in warm or cool weather.
The feminine styling and smart shaping creates a slimming silhouette. With a deep cross over V-neck highlighting the bust line and a beautiful

that flatters many body types. Knit in 75% yak and 25% bamboo yarn,

together. It is beautifully cut and very female.
