I am loving the look of this tunic. Personally, i like the way she wrote out the pattern. It is just the way I like to read my patterns. It is kind of written like a paragraph in a book. The beading is exquisite. However, as long as I have been crocheting, I just do not know if I can pull this off! Do I have the smarts to complete a piece like this?

This is quite a colorful crochet tunic pattern from Caron Yarns and would be beautiful on any body type. Made with beads and simple crochet stitches, this top is easy to make and perfect for wearing out with your friends. Those who are new to crochet this is a great pattern to help you get started.

I think I would possibly create this tunic for my youngest daughter! I really like the pattern with the color banding stripes. She creates jewelry and works with beads quite a bit soooo I think she'd like this! It also has an empire waistband which is flattering on any body shape. I'm thankful they thought about us larger women. Maybe I'll even make one up for myself!!!

Lately I have clicked on some patterns that have no picture.

Hi GrandmaSue, We transferred a lot of our older patterns to a newer template, and so a lot of our older patterns had images that are too small for this template. We're in the process of finding and replacing these images so please be patient with us! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

FYI - I googled the pattern name and was taken to the web site and was able to download a pdf copy of the pattern.

Thank you for alerting us to the problem, and we are glad you were able to find the pattern through a search. We apologize for this and we have updated the link to the correct site. Happy Crocheting! - Editor of

I am having the same problem. I click on the link next to the picture, I sign in to the next page I am sent to. I put the pattern name in the search box and get nothing. 1 start because the link does not take me to the pattern and I can't leave a comment unless I leave a rating.

Where is this pattern?!

You shouldn't rate a pattern poorly just because you can't find the link. Click on the "click here for pattern" which is displayed to the left of the picture.

google the pattern name and it will take you to I was able to download a pdf copy of the pattern.

This link does not lead to the Tunic diy, just a bunch of other items, like 11 shawls.
