Nell Tunic Yarn Kit



You too can knit your own gorgeous Nell Tunic by Eri Shimizu in the Kokon Bleu fingering / 4ply yarn. 

Nell is a raglan yoke tunic worked from the top down. The yoke is first back and forth, with short-row neck shaping and raglan increases, and gathers are added to the body. The fronts are joined at the bottom of Henley neck, then the piece is worked in the round down to the hem. The sleeves, set aside at the underarm, are worked top down in the round with botanical motifs.

This fabulous pattern is available on Ravelry. Eri's version is knitted in the Kokon Bleu fingering / 4ply using the speckled indigo for the main colour and semi solid indigo for the contrast colour.


Alternatively the lovely Leanne who knitted my version for the shop used Kokon Bleu fingering / 4ply semi solid indigo for the main colour and speckled indigo for the contrast colour.
