For this shaped tunic with separate cowl, Teva Durham has worked with two strands of a linen-nylon yarn that has an unusual leatherlike texture. The lower body edges and the cowl are worked in a cross-woven stitch that drapes nicely. The separate cowl can be slung this way or that across one or both shoulders - like a mini cape - or worn up on the neck. The tunic body is worked in the round from the lower edge to the armholes, then the front and back are worked separately to the shoulders. The cowl is worked in the round.
