Allegra is knitted in the round to the undearrm. Then the front and back are knitted separately to the shoulders which are joined by working a three needle cast off. Stitches are picked up around the armhole for the sleeves. The sleeve caps are shaped by working short rows and the sleeves are worked in the round. If you fancy short or longer sleeves, just try the tunic on after a while and stop knitting when the sleeves are long enough. I love this construction method and i'm using it more and more.
Frances knitted this sample and she did a perfect job as always. I'm so lucky to have so many wonderful sample knitters helping me out.
So which one are you casting on first? I must admit I'd love a Allegra tunic for myself. I doubt I'll have time to knit it though.
