Louet Garter Stitch Tunic
Last night, I started another project. I know....I already have enough projects as it is, but I just couldn't resist.

It's the "Garter Stitch Tunic" - the free pattern on the Louet website. I have a lot of vintage yarn in my stash, so I've decided to put it to good use in this project.

The yarns I'm using are:
Nomis Lustro Excellence, sport weight, in Coral - NICE SHIMMER EFFECT!
(50% Acrylic, 50% Nylon)
Bernat Linette
(27% Linen, 27% Rayon, 28% Acrylic, 18% Nylon)
Those two yarns will be held together to make the main color of the top.

Caron Simply Soft, in Jonquil (acrylic) - NICE GLOW!
Fruit of the Loom, in Frosted Red (acrylic and nylon) - SPARKLY!
Those two yarns will make accent stripes in the top.

I think it will be a nice top that I will enjoy wearing.

Here's a photo of the design:

I think there is a problem with other Louet patterns right now also. Maybe they will appear again tomorrow.

In the meantime, I've attached a photo of the top, and here is the pattern:

LOUET GARTER STITCH TUNIC
Finished Measurements: 44 inches (bust) 28 inches long
Yarn Requirements: 5 skeins (100 grams each) worsted weight yarn
Needle Requirements
4.0 mm straight needles
4.0 mm crochet hook
Gauge: 18 sts & 24 rows = 4 inches in garter stitch
Note: Entire T-shirt is worked in garter stitch. (knit every row)
All increases are worked 1 stitch in from the edge as follows:
Knit 1, insert left needle under loop between 1st and 2nd stitch,
placing this loop onto left needle, with right needle knit into
back of loop twisting loop as you knit. Increase made. Repeat
at end of row, working until 1 stitch remains, then working
increase into loop between stitches.

Back: Cast on 100 sts. Work even in garter stitch for 86 rows.
Increase 1 st each end of needle on next row (row 87), then on
rows 95, 100, 103, 106, 108 & 110. Work even until 164 rows
are complete.

Shape back neck: Work even across 49 sts, join new yarn,
bind off center 16 sts, work to end of row. Working both sides
at the same time, bind off 3 sts at neck edge once, then
decrease 1 st at each neck edge twice. Work until 170 rows are
complete. Bind off.

Front: Cast on 100 sts. Work even in garter stitch for 86 rows.
Increase 1 st each end of needle on next row (row 87), then on
rows 95, 100, 103, 106, 108 & 110. Work even until 132 rows
are complete.

Shape front neck: Work even across 53 sts, join new yarn,
bind off center 8 sts, work to end of row, Working both sides at
the same time, decrease 1 st at each neck edge on rows 135,
137, 139, 141, 143, 145, 147, 149 & 151. Work even on 44 sts
each side until 170 rows are complete. Bind off.

Finishing Note: Machine wash and dry tunic pieces and block to measurements before joining with single crochet. The single crochet seams and edging add a decorative touch to the right side of the garment.
With wrong sides together, using crochet hook, single crochet side seams, starting 6 to 8 inches up from the bottom, in order to form slits in the side of the tunic. Single crochet shoulders together. Join yarn at right shoulder, single crochet edging around neckline, armholes and lower edges of tunic, including the edges of the slits.
When working the single crochet seams we suggest that you single crochet between the garter stitch ridges (working one single crochet for every two rows of knitting). This allows for a neater seam.
