Delicate and feminine, yet with a rustic simplicity, the Nubnik tunic (or long-line sweater/jumper) is a modern take on traditional lace. The lacework is toned down by being confined to the lower borders, and is given a softened, earthy quality by the use of aran weight tweed yarn. (A tunic with nubs in the yarn, thus “Nubnik”). Tapered columns of twisted ribbing grow out of the lace borders, and are echoed in the yoke. Nubnik is fitted in the yoke and down to the waist, then flares for a flattering line with movement at the hip. The sleeves are also slightly flared. The garment is knitted in one piece in-the-round from the bottom up. The length of the body and arms are both customisable. Five sizes are included (from S to 2XL). The edge pattern is charted as well as fully written out, and uses only basic stitches, making it a much simpler project than the finished garment appears.

I am an Australian knitwear designer with a love of twisted stitches and innovative techniques. "Jumbuck" is an old Australian word for sheep, so I publish my patterns as Twisted Jumbuck Designs.
