I’m not sure if you have noticed, but I love clothing with angles. It’s a great way to wear something memorable without having to make it a very loud colour (though I have been known to wear loud colours from time to time). And it breaks up the monotony when you’re making something large like a piece of clothing. I get bored easily, so I like to throw in fun stitches and patterns to wake up the senses!

When I made the Blissful Boho Shrug, I fell in love with the triangle shape and how it complimented my body’s shape (ahem, hourglass with extra minutes). So, I decided to design a tunic with the triangle shape in mind. It turned into this fun, easy to wear garment. I named it the Angles Tunic. This piece is not going to spend very much time in my closet. I’m gonna wear it again and again! I hope you love yours just as much!

Instructions

The Angles Tunic is made by crocheting the back panel down to the armpits, then crocheting the front panel down to the armpits and joining it to the back panel. Then you work back and forth in the round until you have the desired length.

You should now have 29 (30, 31, 32, 33, 34) rows.

This will be the depth of your arm holes. The right and left edges of your piece should be 7 ½” (8”, 8 ½”, 9”, 9 ½”, 10”) high.

Note: I designed the Angles Tunic with large armholes in mind to keep it loose and comfortable to wear. If you prefer to have close fitting armholes all you have to do is work less row repeats. But be sure to work your front panel with the same row repeats as your back.

Fasten off, leaving an extra inch of tail more than you normally would.


Top Front Panel

Now you will work the front panel from the neckline down to the bottoms of the arm holes.

Do not fasten off.

Joining the Panels

You will now join the two panels together.

– Lay the panels one on top of the other with the wrong sides facing each other (right sides facing you).

– Use the tail end of your back panel to tie it to the matching stitch of your front panel. (I recommend doing this just to give the piece more stability as you begin working from the armpits down. )

– Grab your hook and front panel again and ss to the matching stitch on the back panel. Turn.

– You will now be working in the round, but still turning your work at the end of each row.

Your top should peak in the middle front and back and come up to a corner at the sides. Here’s a side view to give you idea what it should look like.

Now you will repeat rows 31-40 until you have reached your desired length. You will want to end off on a row that is a repeat of rows 32, 34, 36, 37, 39, or 40. This is because the other rows have an off number of stitches or are a Hdc, ch1 row. The others just don’t mesh well with the edging.

Edging

Next we will be adding a picot edging. For those of you who have never done picots, here is a little tutorial.

Know how to do a picot? Awesome!! Now, just follow the instructions according to your size.

Turn and Ch1.

– *Sc in next 6, picot. ** Repeat from * to ** until you have 7 (7, 8, 8, 9, 10) picots.

– Sc in next 4 (7, 4, 7, 7, 4) sts. (This should bring you to the ch2)

– Sc2, picot, Sc2 in ch2.

– Sc in next 4 (7, 4, 7, 7, 4) sts.

– *Picot, Sc in next 6 sts. ** Repeat from * to ** until you have 7 (7, 8, 8, 9, 10) picots.

– *Sc in next 6, picot. ** Repeat from * to ** until you have 7 (7, 8, 8, 9, 10) picots.

– Sc in next 4 (7, 4, 7, 7, 4) sts. (This should bring you to the ch2)

– Sc2, picot, Sc2 in ch2.

– Sc in next 4 (7, 4, 7, 7, 4) sts.

– *Picot, Sc in next 6 sts. ** Repeat from * to ** until you have 7 (7, 8, 8, 9, 10) picots.

– Ss to first Sc. Fasten of.

Now you will finish off the sleeve  and neck edges and tack them together. This gives the Angles Tunic a sexy cold shoulder. Of course, if you don’t love the cold shoulder, you can always whip stitch the tops of the sleeves together to give it a solid shoulder.


Sleeves

– With the right side of your piece facing you, join your yarn with a slip stitch into an armpit.

– Sc up the side of the armhole, placing 1 Sc in every Hdc row, 2 Sc in every Dc row, and 3 Sc in every Ch3 (Sh) row until you get to the top of the sleeve, with only 1 stitch left unworked.

– Ss into the top stitch. Then Ss into the top stitch of the other side of the sleeve.

– Continue to Sc down the other side of the sleeve, using the same amount of Sc you used in the first side.

– Ss to your first Sc. Fasten off.

– Repeat with the other sleeve.

Neck

– Lay your top flat on a surface.

– Match up the neck edge on the front of your top with the top of row 9 on the back. I find it helpful to hold them together with a locking stitch marker.

– Do the same with both sides of the neck.

– With the right side of your piece facing you, join your yarn in the center back of the neck.

– Sc around the back of the neck, placing 1 Sc in the ring, 1 Sc in every Hdc row, 2 Sc in every Dc row, and 3 Sc in every Ch3 (Sh) row until you get to the last stitch before your stitch marker.

– Ss into the last stitch of the back. Then Ss into the first stitch of the front.

– Sc in each of next 26 sts.

– Sc2tog (into the 2 sc at the bottom on the V).

– Sc in each of the next 26 sts.

– Ss into the last stitch of the front. Then Ss into the first stitch of the back.

– Sc around the back of the neck, placing 1 Sc in the ring, 1 Sc in every Hdc row, 2 Sc in every Dc row, and 3 Sc in every Ch3 (Sh) row until you get to your first sc.

– Ss to your first sc. Fasten off.

Weave in your ends and you’re done!

I hope you enjoyed making your Angles Tunic as much as I did! I’m really excited about its versatility! Make it extra long and it’s a dress. Extra short and it’s a crop top. Make it in cotton yarn and it would be a super cute bathing suit cover! The possibilities are endless!

Now go rock it!
