This open back crochet tunic will be a great evening hit. You can style this garment with straight-cut trousers for a contemporary look or with a short slip dress to show off your beautiful legs. The original crochet tunic by Free People it’s already sold out, but you can make your OWN creation! : )

This will be a comfortable open back tunic to wear – your shoulders will not be displaced and fall off as you might have experienced in other open back garments created without any safe-strings in the back.

Crochet tunic PATTERN – hoodie by Free People

Here is another great pattern: tunic by Free People.

Nothing captures a care-free, bohemian spirit quite like this oversize V-neck crocheted hooded sweater. It features beautiful pineapple pattern with scalloped edges and drawstring tie at the neck. My favorite way to wear it would be as a form of summer layering: put it over a shirt or a top and it completely changes the look of an otherwise usual outfit. Or wear it over a dress for more bohemian look.

The original tunic is already sold out, but if you like to crochet, it’s not a problem to make your own creation! : )

It is worked from the shoulders downwards and has 4 motifs (width) in both back and front. The main pattern is crocheted twice in full height and once for 2/3 of its height. These shorter motifs are placed between the shoulders and the armholes.

Here is my completed tunic:


Gauge and thus width/length of my tunic corresponds with all measurements mentioned on the Free People web site: original measurements.

I’ve made two versions of this pattern:

1. WRITTEN out tutorial with 4 charts and row-by-row instructions is available on Ravelry and my shop:

2. For chart-crocheters I have made concise CHARTED version with basic instructions (on 5 pages) and 4 charts. It is available here:

Both written and charted tutorials include 4  HQ diagrams in PDF-format (four full height and full width motifs of the main pattern for back and front;  2/3 of the height of 4 motifs placed between the shoulders and the armholes with all increases for the neckline and the armholes – this diagram is given in two parts for a better printable view; and an overview of the last diagram).

Anleitung in Deutsch ist auf Anfrage erhältlich (schreiben Sie mir bitte). Fuer diese Anleitung muessen Sie Haekelschrifte lesen koennen.
