Rinda's tunic

I've been laid low with a spring cold bug so resorting to knitting archives.

My daughter is allergic to wool (imagine that in my house with more wool than a yarn shop) so I try to make her interesting garments from non-wool yarns.  This tunic was made of pure acrylic, not my favourite to use.  It was made as a vest but Rinda suggested the rib on the bottom to convert to tunic and as I thought it a trifle on the tight side I opened the side seams and added the band of rib right up to the neck.  It only shows on the right side seam on the front and the opposite side on the back.  Now a striking garment with the addition of the wide belt.

Gives me encouragement to try again!

  1. Allergic to wool in this country? Poor thing. But this looks nice, and easy to wash, I assume!
