Inspired by a meandering river with lush summer foliage spilling over the banks, this tunic looks lacy but is really just single crochet stitches manipulated to blossom into open stitchwork along the body and lower sleeves. The border at the hem reflects the lacy chevron sleeves, creating balance and drawing the eye downward for a flattering, lengthening effect. Extra ease is worked into the hips with chains that also create an unusual seaming technique. The result is a comfortable, versatile, and elegant tunic. This pattern can be found in Kristin Omdahl's Crochet So Fine.

Pattern looks beautiful.  Unfortunately it is not sized to fit -- at least not in the larger sizes.  After spending tons of money on the yarn, and many many hours doing incredibly boring front-loop sc stiches for the main body of the piece, I find it many inches too small to fit.  And yes I did  swatches until I found the right hook size.  I am very disappointed.
