New Lace Tunic

Lion Brand« LB Collection« Silk Mohair

GAUGE:

2 V-sts + 6 rows = 4 in. (10 cm)

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Front and Back of Tunic are worked as rectangles. The side edges of Front and Back are sewed together to form side seams and cowl neck, leaving openings for armholes. The shoulders are shaped by seaming diagonal lines, through both thicknesses, from the top of the armhole openings and working toward the center of the piece.

New Lace Tunic Reviewed by Paulina on 2014-01-29 ****
I decided to make this tunic shorter so in fact it came out as a longer top and it is lovely this way!
I can suggest to make sure that the size you choose to make will really fit you as I had to make my top one size bigger than the pattern shows.
In conclusion, this is a quick and easy piece of work! Have fun
