Stroll through a garden in the height of summer in this cool lace tunic from Interweave Knits Summer 2017. Puck’s Tunic is a subtle, airy tee that is elegant and feminine. It’s made in two simple rectangles and seamed so that all the focus stays on the whimsical zigzag lace on the front and back.
Magazine Kit includes Interweave Knits Summer 2017 (pattern inside) and selected yarn.

ALTERNATE YARN: Hempathy by Elsebeth Lavold (41% Cotton / 34% Hemp / 25% Modal; 50g/153yds): 4 (5, 6, 7) Skeins. This European fiber blend wears extremely well and has a very similar hand to Zooey.
