Short Description: The Mala Tunic is a long sleeveless sweater. It features knit tassels on the bottom edge and a knit tassel and mala bead necklace which extends around to the back neck. This design is worked from the bottom up in the round, utilizing a-line shaping up to the bust where the front and back are then worked separately. Knit in YOTH Yarns Big Sister, it makes for a sweater with great stitch definition, drape, and wearability. The Mala Tunic is as fun to knit as it is to wear. Style it over leggings and tall boots, or over a maxi skirt and sandals to compliment a youthful, bohemian, free-spirited wardrobe.
