This week we're looking back to issue 31 and the fabulous Broomstick-Tunisian Lace Top by Amy Depew
Amy's sleeveless cowl-neck top really highlighted for us the skill Amy creativity with Tunisian Crochet. The added broomstick lace mid section gives it natural waist shaping and helps to create a stunning piece that can be dressed up or down.
Why we love it: As well as the broomstick mid section and crossover with Tunisian crochet, the cowl-neck is a lovely touch and was hugely popular back in 2012. The cowl neck on this piece is made separately and sewn on afterwards opening up the possibility of easily omitting it altogether.
This garment is meant to be fitted. Keep that in mind when selecting a yarn, and be sure to choose one with a little give.
