Kristen TenDyke - Whisper Tunic

  Whisper Tunic  
 

Knitted with two strands of linen yarn held together, Whisperis an elegant warm-weather cardigan. It easily adapts to a variety of styles—over a simple dress for a splash of lacey class or as a simple cover-up while wandering the beach. Knitted from the bottom up, it is shaped by changing to pregressive needle sizes along the way. The sleeves and neck are shaped without interrupting the lace pattern. Easy!

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