I made this for Elin

    I've made several of these tunics for Elin as it's her favourite piece of clothing. Her mum finds it hard to get it off of her to put in the wash as she loves it so much. It looks just as lovely over tops and jeans or leggings as it does over a a dress. The open front means the dress doesn't get all bunched up underneath. An all round versatile layering piece. This time I made 3/4 length sleeves for her. Red was the requested colour by Elin for this one as she now has a passion for red!


    Needles & Hooks

    • Circular 4.00mm (US 6) 60cm
    • Circular 4.00mm (US 6) 80cm
    • Single Point 4.00mm (US 6)


    • Tapestry Needle
    • Stitch Markers


    Age: 6y

    Notes: I find this pattern comes up small as a finished chest size of 25.5" is too small for a 6 year old as this is a looser fitting garment. This is the size I made for 3-4years.
