Description
This curvaceous, Old World-style tunic is worked in the round from the lower edge to the armholes, then the back and front are worked separately in rows. The waist shaping is cleverly achieved by adjusting the size of the cables and the number of purl stitches between them. The front features a romantic keyhole opening and a stand-up ruffled collar. The sleeves are fitted at the wrists with buttons.
