DESIGNER NOTES

• Tunic skirt is worked in St St. It may be easier to make pleats if Skirt is worked back and forth in rows using a circ ndl.

• Pleats are worked at upper edge of skirt, creating waist shaping, then Bodice is worked in Pyramid Lace st and St st for the rem of pieces, with shaping (incs) worked in St st at armhole edge.

• Sleeves are worked in St st with one Lace repeat at center of Sleeve.

• When working shaping, work 1 st in from edge.

• While working shaping, do not work inc (yo) without a compensating dec (ssk or K2tog); work sts in St st.

• Slip all markers every row.

• Finished measurements include Front bands. Due to St pattern matching, the two Fronts when buttoned measure slightly larger than Back width.
