Tunics X 5

People always say, if you find something you like, buy it in multiples.

I stumbled upon this free Pickles baby tunic pattern and fell in love.

Creative-wise, this pattern is perfect for a new mom.  It is easy to knit, with few details to remember, is knit in the round and has unlimited options for customization.

Wearability-wise, this pattern is perfect for baby. It is easy to put on, has no sleeves that could get dirty, covers the belly and can be styled as a dress or a tunic.

I made one...
This one used up 250 meters of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton.

Then I made two more (in a slightly larger size)!
Each one of these used 3 skeins of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton (2 skeins main color + 1 skein contrast color).

Afterwards, I found another Pickles pattern that was basically the same as the tunic, but shorter and with a little pattern to spice things up. Each one of these took 2 skeins of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton.

They are perfect layering pieces for playtime and used up all my stash of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton. Yay!
