Tunic

How quick and easy is this!

20 motifs made on the Magic Butterfly Loom and then double twist to join them together.

20 motifs, I used 5 x 100g Drops Andes super chunky in Ice Blue from Wool Warehouse.  I wrapped 1 row and used the x stitch to knot.

I joined 6 together in 3 rows and then joined these rows together to give a 6×3 strip.  I then joined 2 of the 3 rows together on the short edges, giving me a back and front of 9 motifs each with the top squares open to form the armholes. The 2 remaining motifs I attached to the top to create shoulders.  To finish I simply used butterfly braid to tidy up the edges around the neckline, the armholes and the bottom.

I am going to see if I can make some sleeves using the rectangle loom.
