Cafe au Lait Tunic – Project Kit


Mandy Moore of Olach Designs has collaborated with us to design this beautiful tunic top from our Shetland Coffee range. Her design is based on a traditional Fair Isle motif, but with a contemporary twist and a modern shape to the garment. It is worked entirely in the round from the bottom up with a turned hem and cuffs, and links are included in the pattern for those who may be unfamiliar with the techniques used.

Your kit will arrive in one of our Blacker Yarn fabric tote bags, and will contain the pattern and  4-6 skeins of our Shetland Coffee 4-ply wool, in main shade, and 2-3 skeins in contrast, depending on the size ordered. Sizes run from 32.5, 35, 37, 39.5, 42, 44, 47, 49.5 to 52 inches. Our sample photos are knitted in Flat White and Mocha, but you can select your kit wool from any of the colours in our range.
