Beautiful creation and I’m sure you’ve seen several pages with free charts related to it. Well, you can ask, why bother if they are everywhere? : ). Let’s have a look.

First of all, when you try to follow available charts you’ll see that you need to chain 2 in the final row between petals. Chaining 3 as in those charts will make your motif rather curvy. Indeed original HQ photos show 2 chains between petals. Secondly, in charts for decreasing stitches in lace panels (you’ll see such panels at waist level between level of motifs) you can see that the angle of decrease is different than in the original. HQ photos of the original tunic show fewer rows in the panels than in free charts.

Sure an experienced crocheter would complete the tunic with available photos (and even without charts : )). What if you wish to crochet it with clear instructions for every row, reach diagrams and have complete layout of motifs in front of you?

Since I was thinking of a present for my friend this was a nice opportunity to make my permanent customer and my friend happy : ). I still have to crochet second sleeve, hide all ends in the tunic before I make photos and publish them on Ravelry. But the pattern is completed!

This tunic crochet pattern is provided for sizes US (4-8), UK (8-12), Europe (36-40) with bust 84-92 cm (33-36’’) and US (10-12), UK (14-16), Europe (42-44) with bust 94-100 cm (37-39.5’’).

Crochet filet PATTERNS (scroll down the page) – Crochet trends

I adore this pattern with roses – it’s gorgeous, quite elegant and suits almost everybody:

I have made a top tank from the rest of cotton yarn (here is the green original filet top by Eternal Sunshine Creations):

And my own creations (well, the yarn has ended :))

My friend received such a blue tunic with long sleeves for her birthday (I crocheted a present for her) – it is one of her favorite now :)). Plus I made a skirt with the same filet roses (with a thicker yarn) for her teenage daughter:

So, now I have drawn this filet PATTERN with roses with the diagram of the beautiful edging. The complete description is offered in my ETSY shop:

PATTERN for the DRESS with ROSES is available here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/157342834

It includes 3 filet diagrams for crocheting this dress (for front, back and sleeves) and one diagram for the beautiful edge pattern

PATTERN for the TUNIC and TOP TANK with ROSES is available here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/157491899/   

It includes 3 filet diagrams for crocheting this tunic (for front, back and sleeves) or making a sleeveless top; plus one diagram for the beautiful edge pattern

(I have prepared 2 items because the patterns in the tunic/top and the dress vary slightly)

Both crochet tutorials include detailed tutorial in English of how to work filet patterns, make necessary decreases and increases in the filet technique, calculate the amount of chains for the first row if your gauge is different etc – it is rather a beginner’s guide. Row-by-row instructions for the edge pattern with photos of the process are included.

Although there is a slight mistake in the original pink tunic by Eternal Sunshine Creations (left and right sides in front are a bit different :)), the drawn pattern has no such mistakes  :).

P.S.  This skirt/top tank was created with different roses, but I keep the same idea with pattern divided in the centre:
