As first seen in Inside Crochet Issue 2, the pattern has been re-written in US terms and additional sizes. Deceptively intricate lace pattern, the Zany Tunic is simply a combination of the most basic crochet stitches. Whether you make it close fitting as shown, or oversized by going up a size; it will turn heads everywhere you go.
