09 Oct “Woodland Rose Tunic” republished….
Have you seen the new special issue of Creative Knitting Fall 2012 – No Sew, Circular & Seamless Knits?
This special issue has all kinds of projects to knit using circular needles and/or circular techniques. There are over 50 projects ranging from home decor to sweaters to accessories and knits for kids in this issue.
And, I was pleasantly surprised to see that my “Woodland Rose Tunic” is included! A tunic length vest, “Woodland Rose Tunic” was originally published in “Circular Knitting Redefined” (February 2010).
What makes “Woodland Rose Tunic” special are the lace hem & yoke, with an eyelet panel on the front outlined by traveling stitches. The waist shaping is hidden in those traveling stitches so there are no visible increase or decreases. “Woodland Rose Tunic” is knit in the round with only the shoulder seams to join (3-needle bind off is the recommended method to join the shoulders). Who doesn’t like a project with practically no seaming or extra finishing!
This special issue of Creative Knitting is available for $14.99. One lucky knitter can scoop up the last copy I have of Circular Knitting Redefined for only $13.50 (a soft cover book originally priced at $19.95).
Whether you buy the magazine, or the book – you’ll have lots of fun projects to work on!
Happy Knitting! ~ Jean

It’s a stunning piece. Love that it looks great with a shirt underneath. It would be super cute in the fall!
