My name is Luba. I leave in New Jersey and have a lovely family. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 12. In my teen years back in Russia I knitted sweaters, skirts and other things for myself. When my daughter was born I started to knit for her. Three years ago one of my co-workers asked me why I do not learn how to crochet. This is how I found my new hobby crochet. Since then I spend most of my free time on different crochet projects. Now I would like to share some of them with you.View all patterns by designer (108) »
I bought a long white cashmere dress from Victoria Secret and being not a size 2 or 4 I could see that I need something to put on a top of it to cover my curves. I decided on a tunic. I came across this beautiful top that will look great on any skinny person, but not me :) and I decided to use the same motifs to make my tunic. I know that some women have the same problem I do and now I want to share the pattern
I made it for size 16, but there are measurements in the pattern for size 12 and 14. You can experiment with different hook sizes and use other yarn. You can make it longer or shorted depending on your liking. I placed the elements diagonally, but you may decide to put them the other way and it will make it much easier. It is your choice.
