Crochet Tunic Tee Free Pattern

Oh how I have been wanting to share the Crochet Tunic Tee. This pattern is works up quickly for a top and is quite easy to make. And honestly I think it will look wonderful on most. 

Just crochet up the two rectangles and sew them together. Add your sleeves and your pockets and you are all done.

I have added some simple but stunning details in the ribbing on the sleeves, pockets and edge, plus an easy scoop neck. Just add a chunky necklace and a pair of leggings to complete the look. What would you where with this top? Let me know in the comments below.

For this pattern I used Lion Brands Jeans Color and this yarn is absolutely stunning. I really wish I had given it a try before now. It makes this top feel like a high quality T-shirt. The Capri color is so vibrant and the little flecks of white in the yarn gives this tunic top a lot of character. This top will be perfect for spring, summer and early fall. I have already worn it many times!

Sewing your Crochet Tunic Tee Together

To sew your Tunic together, first lay your two body pieces scoop neck sides together and sew the Double crochet and half of the Half double crochet together at the corners. You can use either a whip stitch or invisible stitch to sew this seam. 

This seam is indicated by the red line below.

Learn more about sewing crochet together with this Video Tutorial.

crochet tunic tee

Next, you will line your sleeves up with the center of the sleeve on the shoulder seam. Sew the sleeve to the body of the tunic. This is indicated by the teal line above.crochet tunic tee

Last, you will fold you tunic in half along the shoulder seams and sew from under the sleeve down the side of the tunic. I stopped before the ribbing to create a hip slit. This is indicated above by the pink line.

Now sew your pockets on the front and your Crochet Tunic Tee is completed. I paired mine with a black leggings and teal flats. I would love to hear what you would wear this top with in the comments below.

      You are welcome. It is definitely a favorite as mine. It has only been finished for less than a weekend I have worn it twice now! I really hope you enjoy it as much as I am.

    I love this top. I know that LB Jeans yarn is a thin 4; I prefer working with 3, especially for summer wear. Do you think a 3 will work?

      A long as it meets the gauge, though if the stitch is not tall enough it is really easy to add extra rows for length.

    I love this – just what I’ve been looking for! As soon as my broken wrist heals and I can crochet again, I’m going to make one – and I’ve been wanting to try that yarn, too. I’m going to order so I’ll have it ready to go. (I’ve been going crazy with all the things I want to make and can’t do it with this wrist!)
    Question: on the pockets, R 6 seems to be missing….so should it read R2-6? Just want to make sure I do it right.
    Also, if I prefer a little higher neckline, can I just sew a bit more when putting pieces together? – or should I do more rows at neckline?

      Yes and Yes, I just edited the R6 and you were correct in assuming it was another repeat of DC across. For the seam above the shoulders, you can sew it as far closed as you would like to raise the neckline. That if you want the neck line to have less of a scoop neck and be straighter across, omit the Scoop neck rows (or work less of them) and replace the once you removed with plain Dc rows. Let me know if that does not make sense.

    One day I really am going to have to crochet a garment for myself. I’ve knitted lots but crochet I always stick to hats, blankets and accessories. Pinning!

    This is beautiful! I especially love the pockets. Jeans yarn makes great clothing!
