New knitting pattern for a comfy slouchy style tunic in James C Brett cotton/acrylic





I have spent many months designing and refining this design, and I am really pleased with the result.


It is knit in James C Brett Cotton On DK, which is a lovely soft cotton/acrylic blend, and is machine washable.


The soft yarn and positive ease make it a joy to wear and it looks great with trousers.  It is a sweater that I shall wear and wear!






           Here are the details:

The sweater is knitted from the bottom up in pieces and seamed. It is patterned with slip stitches and bobbles, and edged with brick stitch; all instructions are written out fully and are easy to follow. The slightly dropped arm and positive ease makes it comfortable to wear.

The model is wearing size 36”, which has 2” of positive ease.

For experienced knitters.

Measurements are:
Size: 36, 42.5, 48.5”
Chest size of finished garment: 38, 45, 51”
Length of sleeve from underarm: 16.5, 16.5, 16.5”
Length from underarm to hem: 16.5, 17, 19”
Length from centre back of neck to hem: 24, 26, 29”
Number of balls of yarn needed: 9, 11, 13
