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.
