Meadowlark Garden Sweater
This winter tunic provides great coverage with a high/low hem and side slits for easy movement. With movement, a 3-D effect is created and the darker stripes fade out of sight, leaving the lighter color more visible. The tunic hangs straight from the shoulders and features a prominent folded over cowl worked in a combination of Garter & Stockinette. It is worked flat from the bottom up using a slip stitch pattern which creates a thick, warm, dense fabric. This is a great outdoor sweater to wear instead of a coat.
