Belted Tunic : Part 1

At the weekend, I started making a belted tunic for Jenny.  The pattern is titled Lime Queen in Simply Chunky Knits, a supplement in Simply Knitting magazine.  Jenny chose the yarn herself: Stylecraft Life Chunky, Shade 2319 Mixtures Cranberry, which is 75% Acrylic/25% Wool.  The tunic features a “skirt” of lacework and a top of ribbing, with a cowl collar.  It’s a beautiful garment, designed by Pat Menchini.

I’ve gotten this far:
