Ripple Effect Tunic

Pre-blog FO

I knit this tunic last winter and still consider it one of my best knits for my daughter. She wears it this year too (not as many times as the tunic actually deserves, IMO :) ), but as she grew more than 10 cm in height since last winter, the tunic is now shorter.
It is knit in the round up to the armholes, no waist shaping. I learned some new techniques with this tunic last year, which I now employ on a regular basis - tubular cast on, tubular cast off, double based neckpiece (cowl in this case).
As we hadn't taken any decent pictures of it, it was high time to do so before she outgrew it completely.
So today we decided to take advantage of the beautiful snow for a photo shoot.
It was a rather short session though, as just when she began posing, a gust of cold wind blew tons of snow upon us from the trees around and we hurried back home.
