It has been a long time ago I posted something here.
Spring is finally peeping around the corner after this very cold and snowy winter. And my poppy tunic is ready, the pattern tested and up. I’m so happy with it. It is perfect for this time of the year.
Maybe you remember the Holst Garn in those beautiful red colors of a preview post here
Just couldn’t help thinking of flowers in a field, poppy’s …
Papaver is a tunic or pullover (if shorter) worked top down, in the round with a circular yoke. The flowers are worked as intarsia color blocks, but the main color is stranded all the way.
It features a large pocket with a lining in contrasting colors and flowered elbow patches.
Possibility to choose from 3 different neck finishes and 2 motifs (flowers or spirals). Small graph paper is included to make up your own drawings, if you should wish to.
