Only because I can't wait to show this off. I'm so happy when something comes out like you hoped!

More info will follow on Ravelry, and I'm guessing I'll have the pattern ready to test sometime in the next two weeks. I used 6 skeins of Jo Sharp DK Tweed.


And although it wasn't meant to be a tunic, I'm thinking it looks pretty good this way.


I made it so the neck could be a shorter, wider foldover - kind of 1960s style. Or it can be a cowl. Like I have it on now, 2009 style.


I added a fake button tab (aka no holes, just a flap), so there would be something fun along the bottom, and used two of my navy blue vintage buttons on it.


And I had a little fun with the shaping along the side, making the ribs increase and decrease where I do. It's a little hard to see in the photo below, but it's there!


I know I've hardly given you guys time to comment on my earlier post, but hey. Feel free to comment twice and make my day!

Your new sweater is gorgeous! The length is great and so are the openwork textured stitches. I especially love the bottom detail with the buttons. Enjoy it.

Looks wonderful. A very classic tunic sweater with lovely imaginative details. Can't wait to see the pattern on Ravelry! You must be so proud.

I can't keep up with all of your posts! :)

The tunic looks awesome. Absolutely perfect. I also second your friend's suggestion to knit a flask cozy...hilarious! You have to do it.

Have fun at Rhinebeck!!

Very cute, Thea! The shaping is great, and I love the buttons. Hope you have time to knit the flask cozy before Rhinebeck :)

That tunic did come out very nicely. It's a perfect layering piece, and I love off-white for fall and winter wear. Modern, but not stark like pure white.
