Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off, read charts, cablework, and seam.

Pattern Description:

This charming tunic is simply perfect for all the young ladies in your life. Soft, flowery cables adorn the bodice with hints of lace and delightful in texture. Delicate crochet chains decorate the armholes, while the fun length gives just enough twirling room! It's named after my own little Sophie (the model) and compliments her sweetly feminine childhood.

My patterns are filled with beautiful photos, easy to read text, eye-catching layout, and everything you need to know in order to complete the project. Sophie Tunic has written instructions, but the stitch patterns themselves are only charted. Also note that measurements are provided in standard and metric units.
