Designed By:     Double Stitch Twins

Skill Level: Easy

Required Supplies:

STITCH NATION by Debbie Stoller® Bamboo Ewe™: 1 ball each 5625 Sprout A and 5230 Buttercup B
(Bamboo Ewe is discontinued)
Crochet Hook: 6.5mm [US K-10½]
Yarn needle

This piece offers many wearing options. It looks great with a tank top and jeans, but would look fabulous over a pretty dress or could double as a beach cover up. This versatile tunic would be perfect for summer travel plans.

Gauge/Tension:     GAUGE: Rows 1-2 = 5″ across. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

One size fits most.

Diameter: 30”, laid flat. Because of the loose nature of pattern stitch, Tunic changes shape to fit a wide variety of sizes.

NOTE:
Tunic is worked in a circle from center out. Two circles are sewn together for shoulders and sides.
