We are continuing our journey to the next pattern in the Pom Pom Quarterly Summer 2018 Issue 25. Join Martina to knit this beautiful tunic. She is using a new yarn, Unity. It is a blend of linen, cotton, wool and bamboo and has solids and multi’s. Please come in and purchase supplies at least a week before we start so that you may get your gauge before we meet the first day.

Leiden is a modular knit with no seaming, beginning with the front striped panel. Stitches are picked up and worked outward, connecting the back and front at the shoulder to form the sides before a 3-needle cast of is worked to join the side seams. Sleeves are continued from the side pieces. Finally the neckline and bottom hem are picked up and knit last for a neat finish.
