The evolution of The Over Brook Tunic Collection started while sitting on my front porch swing, crocheting and coming up with new designs last summer. That is when I created the Over Brook Poncho and I am in love with the stitches in that poncho! When the attempt was made to create the Over Brook Tunic, I kind of stumbled upon the Over Brook Ponchette/Cape and it was a happy surprise. I had planned on making the Mesh Over Brook Poncho all along, because we all need an item like this for walks on the beach or just a little warmth on a cool evening. You can find the collection on Ravelry and Etsy.
The patterns are packed with helpful info. You can use a variety of techniques to create a one of a kind garment for you to wear or to gift to a loved one. They are quick and easy to make. I used Lion Brand Comfy Cotton. I love the drape that it lends to this design.
The first tunic I made using the Over Brook stitches was the Lace Tee. The tee lands just below the waist and has a new set of stitches in the border at the waist.
Use this link to add the Lace Tee to your Ravelry Que and please don’t forget to give it a heart?
Continuing on with the Over Brook Tunic Collection was fun. The next design was the below the waist tunic, and it needed to be a bit longer. The picot edge is a perfect addition.
The last tunic is called the Extended Lace and is a favorite for so many. It is lovely, so lacey and versatile. This is perfect for Maternity wear and I have added info in the “Designer Notes” that have been added to the pattern.
Using a variegated yarn makes this a casual design.
Oh wait, I haven’t told you the best part. You can add sleeves! Many different sleeves! Each pattern will have three sleeve additions for you to try.
I wish you could sit with me on my porch swing and crochet and chat the day away! That would be so lovely! Leave me a note and tell me where your favorite place to crochet is. I would love to hear from you.
