Completed Tunic

Well I finished my Summertime Tunic last week but just now got to take pictures of me wearing it. It ended up very big and I tried 3 times to shrink it but not much of a difference, I really like it Im just bummed its so big around the bottom, I may give it to my mom, but I cant decide cuz its so cute, Im not set on a ribbon yet either, I just chose this one so I could try it on, its a little rough, Id like something more smooth on my skin

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cathay in Teal
Needles: circular 4 and 6
Mods: I casted on a number between the 33 and 36 inch size, I cant remember how much, I have it written down somewhere Im not sure of right now, Other than that I followed the rest of the instructions, except knitting the back on straights, so I didn't have to move stitches around

Here are some pix..enjoy!

That's very cute. Did you go down a needle size for the ribbing? It's looser than the pattern, but looks really comfy and summertime cool.

Thanks for the comments!

Susan- I did go down in size as directed for the ribbing, when it lays flat is goes in a little, the fabric is really heavy though, and stretches out a lot.

I wore it yesterday on a hot day and it was really cool and breezy on me!
