FO: Kid Tunic (FO Appreciation Pic Included)

A good friend, who has two children, both of whom I childminded a couple of years ago, saw this post and asked if I could knit her daughter a tunic too. I was only too happy to oblige.

It’s funny really, I’ve had this pattern in my Ravelry queue for ages and once I knit one of these, I then got another order for one and made one for a friend as a gift in the space of two months.

I went back to my DROPS Belle yarn, mainly because I love the composition of it, the cotton, linen and viscose mix has a lovely feel to it. It’s really nice to knit up as it’s very soft, but the finished garment really holds it’s shape.

My friend picked the colours, and they work very well together and really suit her little girl!

I decreased less stitches before the cuff of the sleeve as they seemed a little tight on the previous version that I knitted.

I love the pockets on this tunic, they work so well, especially with the contrast. In fact, I have taken a shine to pockets and a garment I finished recently (my own pattern), just needed pockets to complete it!

The buttons I had in my stash, but they came from TextileGarden, and don’t they match perfectly?

My friend was kind enough to send me a picture of her gorgeous girl wearing her new tunic, isn’t she sweet?
