Wave Lace Tunic

This is a lovely lace pattern; leave it unblocked for high texture, or block it out to see more of the openwork. Just be sure your gauge, whether blocked or unblocked, matches what the pattern calls for. The tunic is worked mostly in the round; you only have to sew in the sleeves. The side slits allow the tunic to fit nicely over your hips without clinging.

The front and back hems are worked flat to form a slit, then joined and the body is worked in one piece to the armholes. The front and back are worked separately to the shoulders, which are joined using 3-Needle Bind-Off. The sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up, then the cap is worked flat and sewn in to the armhole.

The lace pattern is presented in written format.
