Fine Madeline Crochet Tunic FREE Pattern
By Kristin Omdahl

If you can crochet a granny square, you can totally make this beautiful top. One of my favorite ways to teach someone to crochet is with the granny square. The stitches are worked in holes, not other stitches, and after a few rounds the pattern becomes easy to memorize. This pullover is seamless, worked from the top down and ends with a pretty colorblocked, double crochet bordered hem.  You could easily modify the length of the top or even add sleeves
for a perfect, custom fit! Wear it belted for a blouson blouse or wear it solo as a tunic, cover up or shift dress!

1 (2, 2, 2, 2) balls of Be So Fine Yarn; 100% bamboo, fingering weight yarn; 650 yds per 4oz; shown in color Blue Danube
