Block Stitch Tunic pictures
This is my FAVORITE sweater. It is almost 18 years old. Those of you who come into the shop in the Fall and Winter see me in this one more than anything else. It is a tunic that reaches down to mid thigh, and I wear it with leggings, wool socks and wool clogs. My Cold Weather Uniform:



And then there is the one in the front window:



And I am driven to make this in Mountain Goat, so I did a Block Stitch Tunic Hat to establish a gauge:



...and finally, the sweater is moving right along:



Some sweaters designs are so thoroughly wearable, that you CAN and SHOULD have more than one.

I LOVE the new sweater-in-progress! Which MC colorway is that? I am now thinking that this stitch might have to find its way into one of my next projects.

What a great sweater! Love your new color. Is the pattern yours? How would it look as a cropped design without the bottom band. I would prefer a shorter version.
