Tunic for yarn leftovers – PATTERN

What is most essential to crochet your wearables neatly?

First of all is the yarn! The thicker is the yarn the faster and thicker will be your clothing garment, the more protruding will be all seams and imperfections, the most likely you will not want to wear it outside the house. Second, whether you crochet loose or tight? I’d be very careful with loose crochet stitches – in some boho garments they look beautiful and in more classical apparel they will imply crocheter’s negligence. Third, is the blocking of your completed garment, because this final step reveals the beauty of all stitches.

I love summer crochet garments made with fingering yarn weight (4 ply) and when several rows of solid double crochet stitches emphasize the contrasting lacy geometric patterns. Such garments remain lacy enough, not too thick to make you sweaty, and do not take ages to complete.

In this project I have combined 6 different colours – LEFT OVERS remaining after finishing this off shoulder tunic, diagonal jacketmy boho tunic with tassels, this tunic, three 50-gr balls of cotton/rayon (I loved the dark blue colour even if the yarn shop had 3 balls only : )) and light blue yarn that was left after completing a very old project made for my husband’s sister 8-9 years ago. She put on some weight since then and gave her present away :).

Two colours were originally of DK-weight/8ply and I divided yarn in 2 strands to have Fingering weight/4 ply.

As you might have seen, I love this combination of blue and beige colours very much:
