Crochet Turning Leaves tunic

Crochet Turning Leaves tunic

Autumn is coming! It’s time to whip up some Fall accessories. This Fall theme crochet tunic is made by cotton self striping yarn, interleaved pattern. The main crochet stitches are quite complicated so it’s not for beginners. Still, nothing says Fall like these beautiful leaves texture xD

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 🙂

This crochet pattern is done by 2 identical front and back parts, seam to join shoulder and body lines.

Special stitch used:

V stitch ( dc, ch 1, dc into same stitch or space )

2dc – V stitch ( 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc into same stitch or space )

This crochet Turning Leaves tunic pattern fits size XL ( chest size: 40 to 42 inches )

Skill level: Intermediate

Gauge:  12 double crochet stitches x 4 rows = approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )

    hello I have a question in this pattern you say to do 2 dc ACROSS ch1. I noticed that you use this word in each row. Should the word ACROSS be used.
