A versatile Tunisian crochet garment that’s eye-catching and very adaptable for different occasions and outfits. It could equally be worn at the beach, in the office or at a party and although designed with summer in mind, it could be perfect for other seasons as a layering garment.

The simple stitch and block shaping make this a great first garment project with easy seaming and blocking and a subtle, interesting texture. The Tunisian twisted simple stitch is much less prone to curling than the standard simple stitch so it’s ideal for this garment with its interesting neckline and hemline.
