I happen to love tunics! This pretty one can be worn over a pair of your favorite jeans, a flowing or even a pencil skirt, a fun pair of leggings or Palazzo pants. Apicella is bound to make you feel feminine with its pretty sleeves and side panels.
The front and back also have little details around the neckline such as raised lines, just a little simple accent that also lets you easily see which is the front and back.
Simple styling, perfectly accented and super comfortable. An easy project to knit, even for a beginner. Knitted in separate pieces, sleeves and side panels get seamed at the end. (Sleeves could also be picked up and knitted straight to the body).
The front and back are knitted with two strands of yarn held together. An Option is given to use a sport weight yarn for this portion. The sleeves and side panels are knitted with a single strand of a fingering weight yarn.
For Bust sizes: 36 (38, 40, 42 / 44, 46, 48, 50 / 52, 54, 56)”
