Okay, I am joining the Capri Cover club. The Capri Cover was
designed by Tammy Hildebrand for Interweave
Crochet Summer 2012.
If you haven't already checked out Marcy's collection of
Capri Covers in different lengths, I would recommend visiting her "Who
Lives in a Pineapple?" blog. The dress length modification is fabulous!
Next to join the club was Sharon. She whipped up her top in
just two days. I sat next to her in a meeting one afternoon as she worked on
the yoke. Maybe that's where I contracted "Pineapple Pandemonium"
fever. Or maybe it was the parade of Capri Covers I saw at the office. They
were gorgeous! You can see Sharon's top in her blog "Who Lives In A Pineapple? Part Two."
This pineapple tunic-length crochet top is a great
year-round option. I plan to pair mine with a long-sleeve shirt this winter. The pattern is exciting and a fun modern take
on the pineapple. But I think my favorite part is how quickly this pattern works
up. The crochet lace design means it grows quickly and the top-down construction means
you can try it on as you go-but keep in mind that it will grow with blocking.
Have you crocheted this tunic? What modifications have you
