Textured Tunic

This is a sweater from Stefanie Japel's Fitted Knits. The design is top down which I love since you can try it on as you go. The original pattern called for a different weight yarn and a different neckline. It also incorporated buttons on the sides which isn't really for me. I basically used the final dimensions and stitch pattern. The yarn used is Paton's Classic Wool (4.5 skeins) with a size 8 needle.

The other 4 shawls I made for the 10 Shawls 2010 challenge are
Lion Brand's Country Shawl in a worsted weight yool-
A black Sweet Scallops Shawl in a bamboo cotton sport weight -
Klamath which used a full skein of Zitron Trekking XXL sock yarn-
And a Half Granny Shawl in a bamboo yarn -
So that makes 10 shawls from last year. I completed the challenge!
