Eva Tabard


This product is a digital knitting pattern designed by Pru Raymond.

The Eva Tabard is a quick, colourful layering piece designed to add versatility to your wardrobe and skills to your knitting repertoire. Front and back are cast on using a tubular cast on and knit separately, then seamed at the shoulder. Contrasting icord edging and ties are added for practicality and interest.

Sizes 1 (2, 3, 4) (5, 6, 7, 8) with finished garment chest circumference of 80 (90, 100, 110) (120, 130, 140, 150) cm / 31.5
(35.5, 39.5, 43.5) (47, 51, 55, 59)โ€

Select the measurement closest to your actual chest measurement. As the sides of the garment are open and caught with icord ties, the finished garment is designed to be 10 โ€“15 cm/ 4-6โ€ less than chest circumference. This is not negative ease โ€“ more like negative space to be filled with the textures and colours of other garments or skin.

When you buy a Dear Pru knitting pattern, you’ll get a PDF sent to your email and can grab it from your account. We’ll keep you posted on updates.

But remember, these patterns are just for you and your knitworthy friends and family to enjoy- no selling of the PDF pattern or items knitted from the pattern. Happy knitting! ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿงถ
