Free Pattern Friday – Stairstep Tunic

It’s Free Pattern Friday!


Oh, look!  Another warm garment for me to steal!  The Stairstep Tunic in Classic Shades Frenzy is a cozy treat for this time of year.

The hem, cuffs, and collar all feature twists resembling tiny faux-cables.  Knit the front, back, and cap sleeves flat, then assemble.  The overlapping collar is knitted separately and attached last.  On US size 10 1/2 (6.5mm) needles, this isn’t a project that will drag on forever.

This is a good match of yarn and project – variegated Classic Shades Frenzy provides visual interest but doesn’t obscure the details.

I love this piece.  Instead of stealing it, I think I’ll make my own.
