GAUGE

12 hdc + 9 1/2 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm).

15 sts + 9 1/2 rows/rnds = about 4 in. (10 cm) in (hdc, ch 1) pattern of Sleeves and Cowl.

BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

NOTES

1.Tunic is made in 4 pieces: Back, Front, and 2 Sleeves. Each piece is worked from lower edge up.

2.Cowl collar is worked directly onto the neck edge of the Tunic.

3.Back and Front are worked in hdc. Sleeves and Cowl collar are worked in a (hdc, ch 1) mesh pattern.

4.When you see ‘– 12 sts’ at the end of a row, this is the number of sts you will have after working that row.

5.Our pattern includes diagrams to help you visualize how the Tunic is made and put together. Take the time to review the diagrams before you start knitting. The Tunic is easy to make, but having the big picture will make it even easier!
