I was thinking of starting the Prairie Tunic from Interweave spring?  Any takers?  I'm currently working on somewhat cowl, so it'll be while before I can get started.

Oohh...I love this top too! I haven't figured out the yarn yet, cos I have a bad habit of buying only 2-3 skeins of yarn without any planning. I'm going to join one day Wink

I just finished this one and there is a typo in the magazine. Make sure you go to the correction page at interweave.com or the front shaping will infuriate you.

Heyyyy it's about time someone started up a KAL for this! I'm doing mine in a miscellaneous black cotton yarn that used to be a storebought sweater and US 2 needles. I swatched and even started on the front several times before I did enough math to successfully produce something that will fit me, and have since finished the front and done 5" of the back.

I was fortunate enough to happen upon the pattern corrections, but even with their help the front shaping pissed me off, so I improvised. I'm also modifying the waist shaping to be more extreme and am changing the back so that it won't look ridiculous wth a bra. I'll try to get around to posting pictures tomorrow.

I hereby officially join in.  I've got about 6" of the back done, in some Rowan linen drape I found on sale.  It's not quite the right gauge, but the fabric would have been too dense on 2's, so I'm just knitting a size down and it's looking pretty good.  Could go horribly wrong at any moment, though, since I didn't really do the math.

Anybody thought about the straps?  I don't like the idea of having that big knot in the twisted cord, so I was thinking of doing I-cord and grafting the ends, but that may be too stretchy to do any good at holding it up...

so far, 2 6-row repeats.  i'm making the 36.5" size.  love the yarn i'm using...filatura di crosa dolce amore in a khaki tan color...it's very soft & silky.  would probably be very splitty if not for my inox needles.  i'm digging the straps in the pattern, so i'm going to do those.

can't wait to be finished so i can wear it this summer!

I really wish cotton could be spit-spliced. This yarn is horribly splitty and it's going to be a bitch to weave in the few ends there are. That aside, I think I got the sizing down, as long as I block the crap out of this in a lengthwise sort of way.
