Description Leanne had a sample skein of Blue Heron Rayon Metallic and loved the color so much she knew it HAD to become a tank or tunic. After a little Ravelry research, she settled on Janna's Tunic by one of her favorite designers, Grace Akhrem. Leanne knit the smallest size, and had a little bit of yarn left over so she thinks one skein of the Blue Heron is enough for the first two sizes. Although we don't carry this particular color (and Leanne couldn't remember which one it is) she thinks the Deep Copper, Curry, or Water Hyacinth colors would garner a similar variegated effect. We don't currently carry this Grace Akhrem pattern, but it is available for purchase as a download on Ravelry.

Leanne did not modify this pattern much at all. She knit everything as written for the smallest size, but found that the Rayon Metallic is so drapey after it relaxed that by the time she wore it for the first time, it hung too low on her her body. She ended up going in and removing about 2' of length on each side of the straps, but that was easy since the pattern is knit from the bottom-up. We think this turned out so cute! Nice work Leanne!
