Kristen TenDyke - Tranquility Tunic

  Tranquility Tunic  

This super-soft tunic has an interesting construction that begins with the body and sleeves worked separately in an easy-to-memorize cabled feather-and-fan pattern. The sleeves are joined to the body with decreases positioned along the body "armholes" and the back neck is raised by decreases positioned along the back sleeves. The remaining yoke is worked in the round with some raglan shaping before the bind-off at the neck.

Pattern available in Finish-Free Knits. See all designs in this book.
