Knitted tunic with a hidden front pockets 3


Just few days ago when I checked my daughter’s winter outfit, I recognized that I missed to share with you one tunic. It’s my knitwear from last year, when I was preparing my daughter for the cold winter, but it wasn’t so cold.

I can’t find any step-by-step pictures, but I hope my sketches will be helpful for you.

I wanted to make horizontal cable stitches on the bottom of tunic, so I knitted two rectangle shapes with cable stitches (one for the front and one for the back sides).

Then I collected the stitches (from the longer side of  knitted rectangle) and knitted up with Stockinette Stitch. I collected all the stitches for the back side, but for the front – I left few gaps of rectangle ant put some extra stitches for making pockets in the future.

And I knitted it the same way as any sweater just a little bit longer.

After that, I knitted one more rectangle with cable stitch for the high-neck and 2  strips of one cable to make nice sleeves edges. And for the pockets, I collected stitches on double pointed knitting needles and knitted as long, as deep my pockets would be.

Finally, I sew all parts together, made buttonholes and stitched 2 buttons, one for each pocket.
