Inspired by moorish motifs, this tunic conveys a sense of that influence, without complex construction or a high level of difficulty. The simple, knitted pieces allow the striking crocheted edging to really stand out. A deep split neck and fairly straight sleeves, both edged in the same crocheted pattern, contribute to making this a comfortable, cool garment ideal for warmer weather.
