Tunics are incredibly versatile - you can wear them on their own as a long jumper or a short dress, or you can use them on top of a skivvy or a T-shirt, for example in combination with skinny jeans or leggings.
The Jo Sharp Tunic (image left) is designed like an A-shaped long dress but you can use the same pattern to make a shorter version if you prefer. I recommend using a DK (8ply) cotton or cotton blend yarn to make this pattern.
The Rellana Tunic (right) makes use of the beautiful variegation of Rellana Denim Cotton yarn, coupled with a clever drop-stitch pattern.
The pattern is incredibly simple and can easily be accomplished by a beginner knitter.
Thanks to its very straight-forward cut, the pattern can also be easily adapted to suit a bigger or smaller size!
Denim is a beautiful yarn at a very affordable price!
The tunic-style dress in Marks & Katten Linen yarn (image below) comes in a large number of sizes and colour options.
The colours of the linen yarn are just beautiful - and each of the colours in the linen yarn works well with every other colour in the M&K linen collection, so it will be very easy to put together a stunning and unique colour combination for this pattern.
