I am not a fan of the purl stitch. So, I decided to face my purl demons by designing this easy, 8-paneled, boat-neck, 3/4-length sleeve, summer cotton tunic. While I still prefer to do colorwork in the round, I am more than a little pleased with the outcome. I think you will love this design. Versatile with classic lines. Easy--and fun actually--knit...even with the purls! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit, purl and follow instructions GAUGE 20 stitches and 18 rows = 4 inches SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Pattern includes instructions for Women's S, M and L...and pattern is very easily adjustable for sizing.
