Lattice Shell Tunic
by Kollabora Follow

The Lattice Shell Tunic is crocheted in two pieces and then joined with a funky cluster stitch. Alpaca yarn's ability to stretch makes for a quick project, since you can add length and width when blocking. Great for layering, the shell pattern stitch adds vintage charm to the tunic’s modern shape.

We like it tossed over a turtleneck dress or with a tee and jeans - the Lattice Shell tunic is a beautiful layering piece that you can make in just about any color or texture. 

1 skein Nora’s Pantry yarn: Purple Basil
Size 7 (4.5 mm) crochet hook, or any size needed to obtain gauge

Size S
Finished bust: 29 in. (73.75 cm)

GAUGE: 4 shells x 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) before blocking.  For best results, check your gauge.
