so much yarn... so little time!


cable tunic

cable tunic, hip lengthThis tunic worked up quicker than I expected, and I enjoyed the cable pattern on the front. However, inspite of the fact that I did a swatch at the start, the tunic ended up being a size too big for me. I'm not linking to a pattern for this particular FO as I got the pattern online, and I'm not totally certain about copyright stuff. The design is pretty simple though, with the cabling on the front panel, and scs throughout the back and sleeves. The only thing that was odd was in the sleeve tapering, but I think that there might have been other, more basal problems than in the pattern itself (=user error. lol!!!).

...There is a small chance that I switched hooks along the way; there was a period of time where the back panel languished in my yarn closet. And there is also the fact that the projects being worked in the middle of this one may have encouraged a loosening in my stitch tension. I'm not quite sure what went awry here. But even with the largeness of the FO, I still like it a great deal, and wear it often as a lounging garment.

Once again, K modeled this for me. Thanks, K!
