Steller Tunic

1:48 PM

My Steller Tunic pattern is published on Ravelry!  This tunic is knitted seamlessly top-down. There is garter stitch edging on neckline, hem and cuffs. The tunic has a flattering a-line shape with set-in sleeves, designed to fit tight around the shoulders and loosening along the way towards the hem. A color block in the hem gives room for a bit of color play. Choose a size closest to your bust circumference. This light tunic worked in a wool-linen-silk yarn is perfect for warm days and nice to wear when the weather starts getting colder.

Pattern: Steller Tunic
Yarn: BC Garn Colori, MC colorway 24 (192 g) and CC colorway 20 (47 g)
Needles: 3 mm (US 2 1/2) and 3,5 mm (US 4)

If you think that autumn is not optimal to knit a short-sleeve top, you can do as I did for the prototype version of this pattern: knit half length sleeves. Or continue until 3/4 or full length! If you knit the hem first, you can see how much yarn you have left and knit your sleeves accordingly.

Pattern: Prototype for Steller Tunic
Yarn: BC Garn Colori, MC colorway 5 (187 g) and CC colorway 1 Cr (50 g)
Needles: 3 mm (US 2 1/2) and 3,5 mm (US 4)

This project takes some time, as there is quite a bit of stockinette stitch to knit. After finishing the set-in-sleeve set-up at the top, it's all easy stockinette that continues and continues. This is the easy part, and it will be your comfort project when everything else seems too difficult or requires too much attention. And it might not be a silly idea to start knitting a summer top at this time of the year - you might just finish by the time spring arrives again!

Linking up to RUMS.
