vit tunika järbo 8/4 bomull garn virkad crochet tunic top dress cotton bomullsgarn

This is my white Summer tunic. The pattern is from a Thai magazine, so I'm sorry to say that I'm not able to share it with you. My intention was to make only a top, but eventually the project became a sleeveless tunic or short dress.

The yarn is Järbo 8/4 in white and the crochet hook is 2,5 mm. Järbo 8/4 is a wonderful yarn to crochet with - the yarn slides so easily over the hook and it's more thread than yarn. Thread is the perfect thing to use for crochet and the mercerized finishing makes the result shiny and lyxurous. I'ts also wery comfortable to wear. It's easy to wash and looks great even though it has been washed several times. I just love this 100 % cotton thread/yarn.

The Thai patterns are constructed using another body shapes than our Nordic viking ones, så the written measurements are petite and tiny. However, since I used a heavier thread and thicker hook, I was able to follow the diagram as is in width. I had to make it a bit longer, though.
