Summer Sweetness Tunic
The Summer Sweetness Tunic is light and airy to wear, making it ideal for warmer weather months. This is a great design to pick if you want to explore knitting with many colorful yarns together. The pattern calls for 2 skeins of our Spun Cloud yarn and 5 skeins of our Wildflower yarn.
This sweater is worked from the bottom up in two pieces. The front and back are worked identical to one another in construction, but color patterns are adjusted. You can choose to wear the garment with either side facing front. Our sample is shown with the reverse stockinette side out. The style is available in 5 sizes, XS through XL. Size Extra Small is shown here in color Creme Brûlée (Spun Cloud) and Coral Crush, Dakota Woods, Ochre Rose, Gardenia and Cornflower.
