Cats Pop Over Tunic

Cats Pop Over Tunic

"Sometimes a long sleeve shirt is just not warm enough to wear around the house or for a quick trip to the shops. So I decided to make a simple throw over tunic style top. I had purchased some caron cakes in various tones and chose to use the bumbleberry style to make my top. I'm so glad I chose this yarn as it has a nice drape to it. I do hope you enjoy this pattern."

NotesThe level of difficulty in making this tunic can be overcome by either learning a new technique or using an alternative stitch, the pattern begins with a foundation row of double crochets, the alternative to this is to chain the amount of chains needed, then make a double crochet into each of those chains, the foundation row of dc's gives the Tunic a firmer starting edge, thus eliminating the need for a row of ribbing. The pattern also uses a standing double crochet at the beginning of the row. the alternative to this is a chain of 3. (see stitches used).

This top has been made in different colors and I am not sure which shade I am more fond of. There are a lot of pattern notes and pictures to help crochet the tunic and it is constructed of two identical sides. The use of ombre yarn will give you this magnificent color tunic without the hassle of changing out the yarn.

I don't see the length anywhere on the pattern instructions. I wonder if it's a tunic length. That is my favorite length as it is the most flattering for me- I am only 5 foot 3.5 inches. What a great use for the Caron Cakes! Most patterns I have come across are shawls and scarves, plus lots of baby blankets -)

Very lovely tunic top. Perfect weather to wear this over a lighter weight shirt to give you a little added warmth in the early mornings or evenings for this time of the year. Another great pattern that uses Caron Cakes yarns. They are wonderful to use to create multi toned projects.

I must admit when I read the title on this project, I thought I would find a top with cats on it. My friend loves cats so I thought it would be perfect for her. When I saw cats referred to the creAtors name I was disappointed. But then I read the directions and I am still making it for a different friend.
