Messy Mama creations and patterns
About a month or so ago, a lady posted a picture of a beautiful crochet tunic she’d made following a chart. So many people were interested in making this tunic that she set up a group on facebook specifically to help people learn how to follow charts. I joined and made several hundred mistakes on my first tunic attempt and learnt more about how to rip stitches out without getting too fed up with the whole process 😉 But I finished! Here’s my first tunic:
The only problem with this tunic is that I used a wool blend yarn so for a summer tunic it’s a bit scratchy! My plan is to use up the rest of the yarn to extend it at the bottom, and wear it in the autumn over a little black number.
So, I wanted a summer tunic and went on the hunt for some cotton yarn to use. Eventually I found and fell in love with this:
It’s sooooo lovely. And I’m really loving working with it too!
Sadly summer has been and gone and I have been busy making everything else – still, it’s there for me when I get chance to sit down and catch my breath!
