As someone else posted this is sexy! Perfect little slip off the shoulder and peek through holes. I see this on my daughter with one of the cami's that she loves to wear. I think the best thing about the design it is perfect with a pair of jeans, or a nice skirt for work. I love the color it is done in. But I can see it done in many other colors that can make it a very dressy elegant event to a fun coverup on a summer night. Another plus is a well-written pattern to all level skills. Plus it's available to print!

I simply love the sexiness of this European Goddess Tunic. The length and the way it hugs the body is just perfect. The crochet stitch used is just right, the see thru spaces are not too large and not too tiny. The way it fits the shoulder area is just perfect, highlighting the very sexy cami straps peeping from the sabrina style tunic top. Thanks for this very detailed and easy-to-understand pattern, even beginners can do it. Cheers!

I've been in love with this top since seeing it on another site a year ago, and even hunted it down so I could find it, but they wanted me to pay for it, and I can't do intermediate projects yet. But it's been in my saved projects all year, and I intend to try it at least before I die. Ha!

Oh this is very nice indeed! And the flared sleeves are just darling. I am definitely saving it to make in late Winter so that it will be ready for me to look gorgeous in Spring! Tahki Yarns are not available here in South Africa but we do have some very good locally made cotton yarns so I will definitely be able to find a good substitute.

Perfect for wearing over a tube top or a tank top to give a little pizazz to an otherwise boring or plain top. Love the way the sleeves flare out at the bottom to give it a retro 70s look. This could be worn almost year round since it is mess and made with such a light-weight yarn.

This is a nice breezy looking top for summer. It could also be made a bit longer and used as a beach cover up, with or without sleeves added. I like that the pattern calls for DK yarn. It is not so thin that it is difficult to work with, not so thick that the finished top is bulky. Has anyone here tried it with acrylic instead of cotton?

Oh my, love the look of this European Goddess Tunic. I'm glad the pattern is right here on this page and there is a print tab. I think I need to print it out, that way I have a page for the Pat parts so I don't have to keep scrolling up and down to see the pattern. I love the sleeves in this tunic and the open mesh would be great when you need a cover up while wearing a bathing suit. I like that it is all crocheted in one single piece and I don't have to sew it together and there are different sizes taking that guess work out of it.. All in all I have saved this to my 'must make' list and I love it! Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I love the look of this top. The lace makes it a perfect layering piece and it can be used in any season.It seems like it would look cute with a crocheted belt in same or contrasting color. Another project to add to my ever growing to do list.

Here is a photo of completed project along with a skirt I crocheted.

Thank you. Used a finer thread (50gm200m)with larger hook (4mm 4.5mm for 3ch pat) had to add length to body and sleeves. In small size. It is drying from being washed. So I do not have finished pic. However, wife is very happy with it.
