This tunic exploits the possibilities of two basic Tunisian Stitches, the Tunisian simple stitch and Tunisian purl. The front panel of the A-line sweater is worked in alternating simple stitch and purl framed by slimming panels of Tunisian simple stitch. Therich textured panel is echoed in the slightly flared cuffs of the elbow-length sleeves. The Zara merino superwash is springy, giving the shaped tunic just the right stretch.
