Tunics are really fantastic travel pieces. They're so versatile and can be worn over jeans, leggings or bare legs. The tank style of this top lends itself to being layered over long sleeves in the winter and bare arms in the Spring and Summer. The chevrons around the waistband have a slightly native feel to them and they provide a starting point for the rest of the tunic as this piece is knit first. Smooth stockinette shows off the colors of Malabrigo Rios the best and the lightly textured top adds another dimension to the whole piece.
The tunic is modifiable in length and the fabric has a generous amount of give so any of the 4 sizes should fit most adult women! The geometric detail in the waistband is where it's all started, with stitches picked up for the top and skirt later.
Finished Measurements: 22 (28, 34, 40)"/51 (71, 91, 111) cm around the waist with -4"/10 cm to -8"/20.5 cm of negative ease (the waist band is quite stretchy)
18 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches in stockinette

I’ve been knitting for more than thirteen years and one of the greatest motivators for me to keep going is that every single stitch counts. The completed project needs every stitch to be knit. Every minute I spend on my business, even if I’ve only got one, helps push my brand, my passion and my career in the right direction.
Inspiration comes to me from many places - color, texture, attitude - but most importantly I want to create things that are new, unique but still functional and not overly excessive. My items cater to the colorful, young at heart with their own sense of style and value.
