Namaste Tunic

The Namaste Tunic makes a practical yet decorative cover-up over yoga tights or everyday leggings. On wintery days, that extra bit of warmth is welcome and you’ll look great whether going to class or just hanging around! Namaste!

The tunic is worked in the round (for meditative knitting!) from bottom edge to armholes, where it is divided for front and back. Shoulder seams are joined with Russian Grafting (explained in the pattern) and then neck and armhole bands are picked up and knit in the round. Our sample shown in Size 2. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Intermediate knitters.
