Prairie Tunic

Almost finished the back of the Prairie Tunic from the Spring 2006 Interweave Knits. Having been set aside in favor of the baby cardi, it’s now knitting up surprisingly quickly on US3s. The yarn is Lion Brand Micro Spun (“an ultra soft microfiber sports yarn”) in Lily White. The yarn really is soft and machine washable and dryable, though it splits easily, creating obvious pulls on the finished knit. The lace panel, which makes up the center of the back and the sides of the front, looks great. The overall pattern is simple enough make this a great mindless knit and small enough to travel with. Thumbs up, so far.

  1. Hi, i’m knitting this too in a different yarn/gauge. Are you having a problem with the sides curling? I’m experiencing mega-curlage despite garter stitch edges. Will this go away in blocking, maybe?
