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?
