Jordan Pineapple Tunic - $35

Saturdays, October 31st, 1-4p & November 7th, 2-4p

The Jordan Pineapple Tunic is a great layering piece that will keep you comfy as the fall weather turns cooler.  Worked from the top down, students will work the straps in the round, then begin working charts for the front and back of the tunic separately before learning how to join into the round again to work the body.  The gorgeous pineapple stitch pattern has increases incorporated into the sides, giving this piece a swingy A-line shape.  The pattern includes a wide range of sizes, making this a great addition to everyone's fall wardrobe!
