Product description

Purled garter mesh worked on a large needle creates an open fabric perfect for oversized layering. Kusama features split curved shirttail hems shaped with short rows; all pieces are worked flat and seamed, both for structure and for breezy all-rows-the-same knitting. Extra-long sleeves are designed to roll back. We’ve styled this tunic with 11” of ease; choose a size that gives you about 6” of ease if you prefer less volume.
