New Spring and Summer Crochet Top Designs

I've been working on a couple of new designs for Spring and Summer 2017

Both of these tops have a A line fit and drape nicely over the hips without being binding.  Such a faltering look for those of us with large hips.

These tops have a positive ease making it fit perfectly over a tank or t shirt

Both are worked in three steps.  The Back and Front are worked flat in two pieces and the Body is worked off of the Foundation row of the Back and Front.  Seams at shoulders and a short seam under the arm openings.

I used Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop on both of these.  This is a #3 weight 50% Cotton / 50% Bamboo. This yarn is a pleasure to work with and the drape it creates is lovely.

Cheery Tunic #1701 

Cheery Tunic
Includes sizes Small to 6X
Row by Row written instruction, no graphs
Light and draping Tunic is perfect for ALL Seasons when paired up with a different top or light weight sweater
Also would work great as a Beach and Pool Swimsuit cover up if you add length by repeating the last round of the bottom section before final trim round
