What a quick knit!  I used 3 skeins of Twinkle Soft Chunky in "urchin" and knit the size small even though I am NOT a size small, because the tunic is so stretchy.  The pattern is from Twinkle's Big City Knits, and can also be found in Vogue Knitting Holiday 2005.

Wow! That looks much better in a solid colour! I remember seeing the stripey one and thinking it was awful, but yours is hot! Great colour choice.

love it! I wanted to make that exactly, color and all. But now that it's warm maybe I won't and I'll admire yours instead Smiley

awesome! that's good to know it was only three skeins! i'm a medium normally.  do you think i'd be a small too?

do you know any subs for twinkle yarn? even a three skein project is like $50!!

That is one of my favorite sweaters out of the book.  Yours looks really beautiful.

I don't have time to look for it now, but I believe the book did mention substitutes for the yarn, maybe toward the back?  It has been a while since I looked at it.

Thanks everyone!

thehappiesthooker, I'm normally a medium, too, but someone told me to knit the small and it fits just fine.  I don't think I would have used the Twinkle yarn if I had to buy more than 3 skeins!  Wink  I did run out of yarn before I knit the collar to the length in the pattern, but I don't really mind it shorter.  It still drapes nicely.

As for yarn subs, someone on Flickr suggested Rowan Big Wool, and I just found out that there's a Twinkle knitalong here on Craftster, so I bet that would be the place to find out!  Kinda wish I had found it sooner...

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
