Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/round, so just choose your best technique ๐Ÿ™‚

Special stitches used:

2dc-V stitch: ( 2dc, ch1, 2dc ) into same stitch or space.

This crochet Summer air tunic pattern fits size L ( chest size 36 to 38 inches )

Skill level: Intermediate

Gauge: 10 double crochet stitches x 4 rows approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )

    Thanks for your prompt reply. I dont think that I was clear in my question.
    Row 57…Front *dc,ch2,skip next ch2-space etc. does Not continue the pattern. Does Not work when crocheting into Row 56?????
    Is this an error? For the back, I just did what I thought I should. Thanks.

    • Maz Kwok says:

      For the front piece, you will crochet 2 panels for shoulder parts, R56 to R60 are crocheted continuously from the front piece at one side. Then you will insert hook and join yarn to crochet at the other side ( simply repeat R56 to R60 )

  2. Blenda Banse says:

    Have confusion with Front Row 57……It does not continue in pattern with Row 56.

  3. Blenda Banse says:

    Have a question about R57 for front. Dc ch2,skip ch2 space,dc into next st
    I assume that this is a drcrease but it causes a bumpy lump. It this correct?

    • Maz Kwok says:

      Hi, there’s no decrease/ increase in this row as the shoulder part should be straight up.

  4. Blenda Banse says:

    Am confused with Summer Air tunic patter.Back ..Repeat R59 and R60 at the other side. Do not understand. Also Repeat R56 and R60 at the other side.Would appreciate a clarification

    • Maz Kwok says:

      You can simply add/ subtract a few rows to increase/ decrease the length of this tunic ๐Ÿ™‚
