The Shells & Trellis Tunic

This tunic is another one of those patterns that just fell out of my head and onto my hook. I love it when that happens.
My goal was to go back to basics and make a garment that was quick and easy to work up. I loved the Shells and Trellis stitch pattern, but I felt it needed to be broken up and stabilized a little, so I added solid columns down the sides and middle. The effect compliments just about every woman’s shape.

Finished Sizes:
Instructions given to fit size X-small; changes for small, medium, large, X-large, 2X-large, 3X-large, 4X-large, and 5X-large are in ()
XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL)
Finished Bust: 29” (32”, 36”, 40”, 44”, 48”, 52”, 56”, 60”)
Finished Length: Customizable. Length on model shown is 26”

Choose your size according to your largest measurement and desired fit. For example, if you would like to make a tunic length and your hip is larger than your bust, choose according to your hip measurement. If you are making a regular top length and your bust is larger than your waist, choose your bust measurement. This top is written with zero ease.

I used Loops & Threads Shimmer Shawl, which is 61% Cotton/34% Acrylic/5% Polyester, #3 Dk weight yarn.
Any yarn of similar weight would work.
