Rowan Jana knit tunic

Finished my first adult knitting project in years. This is mainly cos I’ve been doing multiple baby knits for Bub and friends. But this one was for me.

Rowan’s Jana tunic in wool-cotton. Should look like this:

I have learned, from bitter experience, that I NEED my knits in machine washable wool. Too many old projects are unworn because they no longer fit I can’t easily wash them. So I swapped the yarn to a non-Rowan cheap cotton of a similar weight. But I don’t think it’s impacted at all on the final outcome.

I also cheated enhanced the design by not doing the cable pattern on the back and instead leaving it plain. As this was my first ever cable knit I thought that forgivable. Though I’m pleased to say I found cable pretty straightforward and am looking forward to doing some more.

Anyway the final result looks like this:
