PATTERN DETAILS

An easy-to-wear long tunic tee featuring a deep V-shaped back neckline with twisted cord ties, Kelpen is a simple topdown seamless knit from provisionally cast on shoulders. Stockinette stitch with no body shaping and a textured, drapey yarn focus attention on the details; the wide front and deep back neckline are finished with a casual rolled edge, and ribbing forms the short cap sleeves. Casual for daytime or just enough to keep off a little evening chill, Kelpen can also be worn with the V-neck to the front - just omit the ties or tuck them inside.

GAUGE 20 st and 30 rows/4" in stockinette stitch with larger needle, after blocking. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Garment Measurements: Bust & Hip: 31.25 (33.5, 36, 38.5, 42.5, 46.5)".
