Legging Lover Tunic

Crochet Summer Tunic Top Pattern

This adorable free crochet summer tunic pattern is perfect for girls of all sizes.

Because I absolutely love wearing leggings, especially in the warmer weather, I’m always a big fan of long tunic style tops that look cute with a fun pair of leggings.

The Legging Lover Tunic was designed for all the legging lovers like me.

My daughter Netherlee is also very much a fan of tight, legging style pants.  So it made a lot of sense to design this pattern to fit her.

Confession – I did actually design this pattern through adult sizes, but I haven’t finished my own sample version yet….and so for now I decided to go ahead and share the child sizes – because really – what good is this pattern doing simply sitting in my collection waiting for some attention?

Secure and weave in all ends.

(Optional) If you’d like a V-neck that is less deep, you can also seam the very bottom of your V to the desired fit.

I added 5 SC sts to the inside of mine at that spot. Turn right side out.

 

To trim out the project, connect a new strand of yarn and follow this pattern:

 

*SC each of next two sts, 3 DC sts in next stitch* Repeat around each section that needs trim.
