We wrapped the Caribbean Socks crochet along last week and I enjoyed hosting a crochet along and I didn’t want it to end, so it is time for the Valerie Tunic Crochet Along! I designed a Valerie Tunic for myself (which I need to photograph) and I loved how quickly it worked up and loved the beautiful texture and I wanted to make a mini version for my daughter Elizabeth and I was surprised how I was able to make an adorable tunic in about 3-4 hours! The crochet along will begin Tuesday, July 31st and will run through Monday, August 13th and when the pattern is published on the 31st it will be published in full, so we will have a schedule but you will be able to crochet the tunic at your own pace.

You are going to need medium weight yarn (weight 4) and your 6.5mm crochet hook (or crochet hook to match gauge) to work up your Valerie Tunic. I used I Love This Yarn for mine and Elizabeth’s tunic. So grab you yarn and check your gauge. The pattern will includes size for children (2, 4, 6, 8, 10-12, 14-16) and women (small, medium, large, extra large, 2 extra large).
