Apicella Tunic For KAL
Join KAL, aka knit-a-long
By joining the KAL you actually have a better chance to finish this gorgeous top, because you are doing it in a group setting and are not alone~
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. This tunic is bound to make you feel feminine with it pretty sleeves and side panels. The front and back also have little details 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, so you may skip a bra or camisole. The sleeves and side panels are knitted with a single strand.
