The beauty of variegated yarn is best revealed with quite simple crochet or knit stitches. I have knitted a couple of rows with stockinette stitch, but the result was boring : ). Endless rows of single or double crochet stitches would not be a great option either because they are known for their stiffness. My skin is rather sensitive and I cannot wear stiff clothes on my shoulders, that’s why I prefer not using more than 2 repeated rows of them in crochet tops. So, a combination of single crochet, half double crochet stitches and chains was chosen for making this contemporary looking drapey top. Besides I could include my yarn left overs of the same grey hue.

This tunic features beautiful central detail with scalloped edge. Front and back are symmetrical. The tunic looks nice with a figure hugging skirt, shorts or jeans.
