50 Fair Isle yoked tu­nic

The Knitter - - Contents - Mary Hen­der­son LERRYN

MARY HEN­DER­SON has com­bined her two favourite styles, Fair Isle and lace, to cre­ate her yoked tu­nic. It’s knit­ted from the top down, with a stranded colour­work yoke, and a lace panel on the cen­tre front for added in­ter­est. The tu­nic has short sleeves and pos­i­tive ease, to al­low it to be lay­ered over a blouse or T-shirt in the win­ter months.
