The Dagwood Kit from Tahki Yarns includes the PDF pattern download and the 2 colors of Donegal Tweed Fine yarn you need to knit this remarkable tunic.
Dagwood is a tunic-length cardigan that features a simple fitted bodice paired with a dramatic gored skirt that alternates stockinette stitch panels with lace ones worked in a contrasting color. Donegal Tweed Fine adds warmth and texture to this garment with its tweedy blend of wool and mohair. This sweater begins with working the bodice from the waist to the armholes in one piece, where the front and back are divided and worked separately to the shoulders, which are joined with a three-needle bind-off. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armholes and worked down to the cuffs with short rows shaping the sleeve caps. The skirt is comprised of wedge-shaped sections that are each knit separately and then seamed together before being sewn to the bodice. Note: Lace pattern is written only.
