Autumn Road Tunic
This sample is actually my prototype! It is close to a size 4 in the pattern and Scarlett is 5.5yrs here, so it doesn't have much ease. It cold comfortably fit a 2 yr old as a little dress.
The sleeves are puffed a lot more in the pattern than in this sample. They feature sweet little garter stitch ties.
A-line shape, with increases on either side of the front and back sections are fun little details.
The buttons and holes are located on the left front raglan edge.
Description: “The Autumn Road Tunic was designed with my little girls in mind. They love stripes, lots of colors and fancy details like puffed sleeves and ribbons. This cute little tunic is worked seamlessly and flat, from the neck down and then joined in the round after the buttonholes are worked. It features raglan shaping, gathers along the sleeve caps, and increases along the front and back panels. Sleeves are kept short and are gathered at the cuff where garter stitch ties are worked. The neck edge, hem and cuffs are worked in garter stitch with a contrasting color to add a pop of color. The striping pattern is optional and is great for using smaller amounts of yarn.
“The Autumn Road Tunic is sure to become a go-to favorite!”
