This tunic sweater is almost completely crocheted with hairpin lace, a very stretchy, open fabric of strips that are joined as you go. There is a solid single crochet waistband, lending structure to the tunic and loosely defining the waist. The unique texture of the flat ribbon yarn is prominently displayed by the open construction, and the simple repetitive stitch pattern creates a clean look for the finished garment. With a relaxed fit and airy but elegant appearance, this is a truly beautiful and versatile piece. This pattern can be found in Kristin Omdahl's Crochet So Fine.
