Dream Motif Tunic
Inspired by bold graphics and flowing tops of the late 60’s, this tunic will dreamily float around you. Whether you wear it open and baggy, belted at the waist, or just cinched under the bust; it will be a bold new piece to your wardrobe. The construction is purely from granny motifs that can be joined as you crochet or joined once they are all complete. Yarn:
