Its too hard to keep a secret..


Lacy Tunic Front

So I have been sitting on a little secret, and since I stink at keeping them....
So the reason I have not returned phone calls or emails, Is this sweater. I have been working night and day on it. I made it for Catwalk Crochet (the book my Vickie Howell) using Karabella's Breeze and a G hook. Tunic sits at hips and gently flows over ribbing (even though on my model it sits at Suzie's low waist- she doesn't have hips!). Sleeves are wide at the bottom with a slight bell shape. Tunic is fitted in upper arm and bust. Boat neck is closed with one simple button. It think the book comes out next year. It is going to be all crochet garments for the whole family, that are inspired by catwalk fashion.

Finally, I can sit back and breath again!
