Published in Knit Picks Bulky 2013 Pattern Collection
The Ayri Tunic is a versatile mid-thigh length sweater, inspired by the ones favored by stylish actresses in LA. Wear it as a tunic over jeans, or make it a little longer to wear with leggings and boots as a sweaterdress. Pattern includes instructions for elbow-length or full-length sleeves.
The tunic is constructed seamlessly from the top down and features raglan sleeves, a scoop neck, and waist shaping for a flattering fit. Simple stranded colorwork diamonds on the upper sleeves and neckband add interest and a splash of color.
