Hey everyone. Here's my latest FO: the Punk Rock Tunic.
I've been itching to do another tunic, and I think this one really 'fit the bill' with me this time. I'm really pleased with the fit & look.

The pattern is my own (KUAS Original pattern) & it was knit with a yarn similar to Jiffy, and knit as one piece, top to bottom. I made sure that I knit this one in time for Valentine's Day, since the colors are pink & purple.

Thanks for taking a look! You can check up on my blog for more info about this project. Smiley

That is awesome. It makes me wish I could knit.

This is really fantastic!
I'm so impressed you came up with the pattern too. Any time I try to knit without a pattern it somehow always ends up lopsided... Oh well, hah.
Seriously though, its really awesome. Is there any way you would consider posting the pattern so us less-skilled knitting heathens can leech some of your talent? Wink

Checked out your blog because i would really love the pattern for this. I read that you were planning on writing it up, but i can't find it. Have you gotten a chance to write it up yet?

Can i knit you something in seed stitch? I'd love to swap you for: handspun yarn, hand carved banana stamp...
