Gusset Tunic

Gusset Tunic was published in knit.wear Spring 2014 issue.  The original sample is kept by the magazine so I made one for myself.  I used a yarn called fettuccine, it was on a cone and I got it from a yarn exchange with my machine knitting guild.  I made it shorter than the original sample.  I am 5' tall and the model is lots taller.    Since it's top down I just ended earlier and this also cause the gusset to be shorter as there are fewer stitches to decrease to a point.  That's what's great about top down knitting, flexibility.
