Wyatt Tunic Knitting Pattern Download
After publishing my first pattern, Wyatt Tee, I almost immediately had the idea for a tunic version. I wanted a bit more coverage with not just an extended length, but also along the back/neckline and arms. I know leggings, skinny jeans and even jeggings are popular right now. This design gives you coverage with the ease of a lightweight, drapey fabric from linen. The Wyatt Tunic could also easily be made with a wool, cotton or silk blend for other climates (linen is ideal for humid months aka year-round Florida).
This pullover is knit flat as separate front and back pieces, which are seamed at the shoulder using three needle BO. One continuous seam is created using mattress stitch: sleeves are seamed WS facing and the seam continues down as the sides are joined, RS facing. The bottom ruffle is picked up along CO edge and knit in the round.
