Description
When summer gets cooking, Robyn Chachula finds herself heading toward loose layers that let cool breezes flow through. This tunic, worked in a cotton and wool blend, reflects her fantasy about the beautiful and cool mountain regions of Aragon. The jumping shell pattern is worked in two pieces, then an X-stitch border is added that mirrors Aragon's Romanesque castles to transport you farther from the heat of the summer.
