Marian Tunic

MARIAN TUNIC
Michaela Moores

A split neck, sideways knitting, and a unique openwork pattern give bohemian appeal to this lacey tunic. Top is worked back and forth from stitches picked up from two central lace bands.

Finished Size 48 (51, 56, 59, 64, 67)" bust circumference. Tunic shown measures 48", modeled with plenty of ease.
Yarn Madelinetosh Tosh Lace (100% merino wool; 950 yd [869 m]/3½ oz [100 g]): chamomile, 2 (2, 3, 3, 3, 3) skeins.
Needles Bands—size 2 (2.75 mm). Body and sleeves—size 6 (4 mm): 32" circular (cir). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notions Stitch holders; tapestry needle; removable markers; smooth waste yarn in contrasting color (for blocking).
Gauge 24 sts and 24 rows = 4" in Openwork chart patt on larger needle; 20 sts of Diamond Lace patt = 2¼ " wide and 49 rows = 4" on smaller needles.

  1. Please explain what “plenty of ease” means in numbers? It”s clear that it’s an intentionally oversize garment, but how much ease is “plenty”? Many thanks!

  3. I love this tunic and want to knit it. I am hesitating because of the instruction to knit the bottom band after knitting the center band and then picking up stiches on the center band to knit the body. My question is how does one join the bottom band to the body of the tunic. I am probably missing something obvious, but need some help.
