Fan Lace Tunic

Lion Brand« Pound of Love®

GAUGE:

16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. over Fan Lace pattern.

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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

ssk (slip, slip, knit)  Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them together – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

2. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
3. Front and Back are worked in Fan Lace pattern with Moss st side borders, Lower edges are worked in K1, p1 Rib between the Moss st side borders.
4. When you see "as established" in the instructions, this means to continue in the current pattern st ensuring that the sts line up as in previous rows and maintaining the stitch count.
5. Front is divided for neck, then each side is worked with a separate ball of yarn. For the 2 smallest sizes, wind about 15 yd. (14 m) of yarn into a small ball and set aside before beginning the Front.
6. Stitches for the neck edging are picked up around the neck and worked in K1, p1 Rib.
7. Sides of the Tunic are seamed just below armholes, then left unseamed to lower edge, creating side slits. If desired, you may seam the sides completely.

Fan Lace Tunic Reviewed by Mollie Dosch on 2013-12-27 *****
Just finished knitting this today. I used Denim and thoroughly enjoyed knitting it. I used a 10 needle to obtain the correct gauge and bound off the neck using an 11. I did a three-needle bind-off instead of sewing the shoulders. Came out great! Now I'm waiting for colder weather so I can show it off.
