Outsize lace panels create long vertical lines that flatter in the Alpaka Tunic. Deborah Newton designed an A-line silhouette that works equally well with minimal or plenty of positive ease. A gently felted roving-style alpaca yarn makes for crisply defined lace patterns in a silky and fluid fabric.

Finished Size 43 (48 1⁄2, 54)" bust circumference. Dress shown measures 43", modeled with plenty of positive ease.

Beautiful Tunic Review by Betty L.

I have knit this in Berroco Vintage Chunky and it is very beautiful. Also, i knit it for a tall slender pregnant woman. I think that it will be a wonderful maternity tunic, to wear with leggings....the pattern is very easy to learn and is beautiful.
