Crocheted Tunic ~ New Project!


I haven't told you about my latest project yet.  I know I've been working on my Solomon's Knot lace vest and actually, I finished it.   I haven't taken pictures because I really want to make a second one now that I have the pattern completely worked out.  Since this was a first effort, I had to add a couple rows here and remove a couple there.  I'm kind of a perfectionist and it looks like a first draft effort to me.  I do like the design so I will make another, but I'm taking a little break.  

Here's what I'm making now.  I referred to this tunic as new, but I've been working on it behind the scenes for a little while.  If I just took a picture of the fabric, it would be hard to tell where I'm going with this project, so I drew a little sketch.  I'm working the design in four pieces, two squares and two long polygons.  The inspiration for this tunic came from my own closet.  I have a cool top that was made in Japan.  I really like the clean lines and construction of the piece, only there is one aspect of it I would change if I could.  Then I started thinking, why couldn't I?

I didn't know where to post this, but I just wanted to thank you for posting that video on YouTube about crocheting a rose.


Thank you very much!
