Summertime Tunic

Yey! My Summertime Tunic is fineto!I'm one happy knitter!Pattern: Summertime Tunic
Designer: Katie Himmelberg
Source: Interweave Knits, Summer 2007. It's also a free pattern that you can download here.
Yarn: Reynolds, Gypsy. 100% cotton. 7 skeins.
Notes: The yarn was a bit 'stiff' to work with but once I finished and washed the piece it softened up. Kind of has a nice, denim-like finish.

What a great project! I love the contrast ribbon, too.

Some people have complained about how deep the slit in front is. Yours looks great! Did you modify it?

Knitterella said...

Thanks everyone! I'm truely happy with this knit! :)

Jodi, I didn't modify the pattern, just pulled the straps pretty tight and then tied my bow that seemed to close my 'slit' up pretty good.

And actually, I made my 'ribbon' out of some fabric. I made sort of a bias tape of out some fabric from my stash. I liked the way it worked.

Thanks!
Jill
