Making Clouds Tunic ~ by Lavender Hill Knits


Easy lace tunic, in a pretty garter and elongated stitch pattern.  Directions include color pictures, very detailed knitting instructions and definitions of stitches used, and NO CHARTS.  So this pattern is easily accomplished by an intermediate knitter.


The Making Clouds Tunic was inspired by my son, Aaron.  When he was two years old we were outside one day admiring the blue sky when he said, “Look Mom, they’re out making clouds again today!”  He was referring to the long white trails, called contrails, that the airplanes were leaving behind in the sky.  We spent a good long time mesmerized by the shapes the vapors created as they spread out across the sky.  Aaron has always been fascinated by airplanes and dreamed of becoming a pilot.  He’s older now, still loves airplanes and traveling, and maybe his dream of being a pilot will come true and one day he’ll be out making clouds.  If you loved my Making Clouds Shawl pattern (shown in last photo), you will love this tunic!
