Work through the entire project with 1 thread of each No. 6, 7 and 8.
Circular and double pointed needles size 3½ and 4mm / US 4 and 6. 3 m yarn in a contrasting color and crochet hook no. 3½ / US 4 for the crocheted, temporary cast-on. 7 stitch marker.
Gauge: 20 sts and 28 rows in stockinette st on needle size 4 mm / US 6 = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches
Directions: The tunic is knitted in the round from the top down in a simple pattern of alternating stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch. Cast on stitches using a temporary crochet cast-on, so the size of the neckline can be adjusted subsequently. Short rows are worked across the shoulders and back at the beginning to give a higher neckline. The yoke is worked with increases. The work is divided and the sleeves are finished first. Then the neck is finished and finally the body, to make sure as much yarn as possible is available. Increases are made on the body mid front and back, to provide an increased width in the skirt.
