Work up this Bright and Beautiful Crochet Tunic for a stylish piece of spring or summer clothing. The beautiful design on this crochet shirt is light and airy so that you can keep cool on even the warmest of days. I also just can't get enough of this bold blue color that makes it seem like a bright and happy crochet tunic pattern. Feel just as bold as the color by wearing this fun crochet pattern all summer long! Pair it with a nice sweater for the office chills so that you can still be fashionable.

Wow. This Bright and Beautiful Tunic is so lovely. The length of the tunic is the selling part here. It is just the right length for a tunic top which will fit a lady who has the appropriate body for this kind of top design. The color used here is just the perfect color for a top that can be stylish in all seasons of the year.

I'm getting confused at the end of the set up row. I chained 62 and did school in second chain from hook and basically worked in every fifth stitch along and I end up with three chains at the end. Should I single crochet in the second chain and the double crochet into the last chain which would basically match where I began? Or what stitch should I be ending on?

Oops, I did single crochet in second chain from hook, not school, lol

You should have enough chains to end with a sc. You shouldn't end with only three chains left. I would go back and check your original chain count or see if you accidentally put the stitches in the wrong chain. I started this top but do not like the yarn I am using, so I decided to wait until I can order some caron simply soft light to restart it.

I don't understand how to start it.

Hi Becky, If you scroll down to under the Pattern Stitch Section, you'll see the directions for the back that mention chaining stitches to form your foundation row: Ch 62 (72, 82, 92, 102, 112). Work set-up row6 (7, 8, 9, 10, 11) repeats. That's where you begin. Thanks, hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I love the pattern,but don't understand doc in sc from 2 rows below. It says skip 3 sc, so how do you keep track if you don't insert your hook into the row you are working on?

I think this is gorgeous. But I won't make it as a shirt. I am going to make it in black as a swim suit cover up. I think the open work will be great and I will make it a couple sizes bigger so it sort of floats over the suit and isn't tight. Thanks for a great idea and inspiration!

Beautiful! I'm working on it for my daughter. I love the Caron yarn. I found the set up row a bit confusing because the skip 4 came before the ch 3, but finally the penny dropped as they say.

That means--10 2 ?

What does it mean multiple of 10 2?

Measure how big you want the bust to be then make your start chain in multiples of 10 2. They already give you starting chains for most bust sizes, 36" = 62 etc. But if you need another measurement be sure you do your start chain as a multiple of 10 2

It means that the pattern (the wave part) works out in 10 stitches so to add a wave you have to add 10, if you want two more waves you add 2x10 (or twenty stitches), 3 waves = 30 stitches, etc. I think the 2 is for the whole row because if it were 102 for every wave combo wouldn't it have been easier to say 12 stitches for every wave? Not having started this myself I'm not exactly sure. Maybe I'll give it a go though...
