  • Knit, Purl

Pattern Description:

I live in south Florida and I made this tunic sleeveless because I knew that if I made a heavy, thick sweater with sleeves I wouldn't get to wear it much. It just doesn't get very cold here, but when it does, this is the perfect sweater to ward off the chilly wind. If you prefer a sweater with sleeves, you could easily pick up stitches around the arm holes and add sleeves.

This design is nice because it has the decorative cable detail, but the rest of the sweater is just stockinette stitch and doesn't require much attention (or any counting) and I like a project that I can work on while watching a movie.

For size reference, my daughter (pictured) wears a 5/6 in juniors. I made this one for myself and I wear a women's size 12. Even on me, the fit is still very loose and relaxed.
