Zephirine

Here is the Zephirine Tunic, which I designed for Knit Now's 50th issue!

Zephirine, a fun and floaty summer tunic, is knit with Yarn Stories Fine Merino 4ply, which is ridiculously lovely yarn to work with! It has good stitch definition and a lovely hand, and has a nice bounce to it. I like their colours, and would work with it again in a heartbeat; might have to try the alpaca blend next!

I'm quite pleased with how Zephirine turned out, particularly the sleeves, as I had been worried that they would turn out to have not made as much sense in reality as they did in my head. It's always a delight to see something you worked on in sketch, math, and stitch form come all together with the finishing.

There are several lovely tops and sweaters in this issue, and also some great accessories! The previews are starting to turn up on Ravelry, and I think you'll find that in addition to the warm summer's day knits, that quite a few that are just right for a chilly summer evening or for the inevitable transition to fall.
