I'll proof it again on Wednesday and then I'm looking to see if any of you are dying to knit up a top down, simple lace tunic to wear for the holidays? Use up some DK tweed in your stash? I'm needing knitters and some feedback as you go. If you're game. I'll load you up with vintage buttons as a thank you :-)
I have one volunteer for the medium. Would take another, but I'd rather get a large or small going and see how the sizes are working out. It has a little ease in it - is meant to fit loosely throughout the body.
(X Small (32/34), Small (34/36), Med (36/38), L (38/40,) and XL (40/42))
Oops, I cut and pasted off the document so ignore the weird font and space there. Anyways, it's knit out of Jo Sharp DK Tweed - My gauge is 5 st =1" on #6 needles - in stocking stitch. I used all of 6 skeins for the x small - You'd need 7 for the small and med, 8 for the lg and xl. (147 yds each skein)
As always, I'm open to sub yarn, since you'll all do it anyways -- as long as it's on gauge and has the right feel to it. Am thinking it could work in a light worsted or tweed. Something a little wooly would be nice. Not too itchy or sheepy. Nothing too drapey or it won't work. A little texture is probably the most attractive way to go for the pattern. Tweed is lovely, perhaps a wool heather might work too.
And for a start date, I'm thinking, well, nowish? of course.
