Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round
  • follow cable & lace charts (written directions are given, as well)
  • work newly increased sts into the lace pattern

Pattern Description:

Perfect for snuggling up with your favourite book, the Etta tunic will fast become one of your favourite knitted pieces. It's a relatively simple design in terms of construction - knit in one piece from the top down - allowing you to concentrate on the pretty cable pattern, which is the same on the front and back.
