|Amaryllis Tunic, Interweave Crochet Magazine|
This is the project that when finished last year, I said it's either brilliant or awful. The jury is still out for me. My vision was a tunic that you wear over leggings and tall boots.
To be honest, this top was made for teenagers in mind specifically. It is actually sized from pre-teen. I don't do many teenager fashions, that is probably why I am still waffling on it. I was thinking a mashup of plaid and flowers. The empire waist is really high to hit right under your bust (if you are built like a teenager that is, aka, not like me).
It is a blast to crochet though. The plaid is super fun with little chain spaces built in for your embroidery. The motifs are easily memorized sc and ch pattern. The yarn is fantastic, Cascade superwash. I think I have used it at least 10 time since crocheting this sweater.
You can check out all the pictures over at ravelry, and let me know what you think. Would your teenager wear it?
