A nifty Tunic sweater for those who are tired of knitting hats and scarves and ready to move on to something more exciting.

I love this sweater, MrsB. Do you think it could be enlarged to a 2X? :D

lovely - chest measurement says 26"? Isn't that a tad small?

Funny you should mention that as I am also a size 2X. I believe that you can increase the number of stitches by additional reps to get the proper fit. What I normally have done is to take the largest size specified and go up a size or two in my needles. Depending on the pattern, that seems to work fairly well. However, it would depend on the openness of the weave in the design. More experienced knitters than I would have no problem calculating increased stitches. I just wouldn't know how many stitches to cast off for the armhole and neckline decreasing. But, I'm willing to learn -lol

I just looked at the pattern. Looks to me like 26" is HUGE, this pattern is stretchy and also has a dropped shoulder. 26" = chest mmt if you place the sweater flat on a table and measure across it directly beneath the armhole seam.

You should be easily able to increase the size by a few repeats of the lace pattern. But you are right, the armhole will be tight unless you increase the circumference of the sleeve and then open up the armhole a little bit to accommodate. The pattern has very little armhole shaping, so it should not be that difficult. Per the directions, you are knitting a great big square until you reach the armhole.

Great pattern post, MrsB, I have been looking for something just like this, I love tunic length.

The yarn appears to be sort of fuzzy and maybe would work with a mohair or acryclic blend (from low end cost to a bit more). It would also look nice in an ecru, rose or maroon colored yarn, I'm thinking.

I think the 26" is a typo. I copied this the other day and if you compare the gauge it should be 56" I think, at least that is what I am assuming.
Yep, went back and checked gauge is 12 sts to 4 ins in pattern, cast on 168. 168 - 12 = 14 and 14 x 4 = 56 ins
Pickles always seem to give the directions for 1 size only and you have to buy if you want another sizes. So for a change they gave close to my size.
