Free Crochet Pattern – 2T Crochet Tunic

I crocheted this 2T Black Sparkly Crochet Tunic for a customer last month. While I was working it up I just happened to remember to write down the instructions. Most of the time I just work it up as I go and completely forget to document what I am doing. I know…makes it quite difficult when I want to work it up again. But since I wrote down all the instructions I figured I would share the pattern with you all so that you could work them up too (if you wanted). Scroll down for the pattern!

2T black sparkly crochet tunic - thesteadyhandblog.com

You will need:
D hook
Sport Weight Yarn (I used Lion Brand Glitterspun)
Stitch marker
Yarn needle
Scissors

Notes:
The top is worked in 3 parts.
1. Middle – worked from the neck down
2. 1 arm – worked from shoulder down
3. 1 arm – worked from shoulder down

I do not have a gauge for this pattern but I do tend to crochet a little more tightly than most. You want the tunic to be loose since it is open-weave and needs to be worn over another top.
