Description
Texture and color come together in this cheerful tunic. Each piece is worked separately from the lower edge to the armhole, then given a raglan shaping to the neck. The modified rib at the hem, cuffs, and neck is repeated in the yoke where it is punctuated with flecks of color, drawing upon the Fair Isle colorwork in the body and sleeves.
