  This sassy tunic is a great pattern to try out a few techniques that you may not be familiar with: stripes, fair isle and steeking. The striping and fair isle patterns are super simple—worked in the rnd, and the unused colors are carried along the inside of the sweater. When you get to the armhole shaping, you have an option—to steek, or not to steek. I’ve included instructions for both, and even came up with a video tutorial to help make the steeking process seem easy!
