Elinor Tunic

Pattern: Elinor Tunic from Interweave Knits Summer 2008
Designer: Wendy Bernard
Yarn: Rowan Summer Tweed, main color 515, 500, 506, 537

Finished! Very quick and fun to knit. The color work looks more complicated than it is, you only knit with one color at a time on each row. The other color is slipped onto the needle from the previous row. Easy to follow instructions. I chose not to add the beads onto the side seams. The only problem I had was that the red yarn bled a little during blocking. All that being said, I just have to say I hate pictures of myself. I didn't think about that when I started this blog! I really need to find a model.

You shouldn't have given away your secret because it looks much more impressive than you described. I feel the same way about photos of myself, but it looks great on you!
