The Layla Tunic crochet pattern is a beautiful tunic that is great for spring or fall. The length is long enough to wear with leggings and boots, and the sleeves come all the way to the elbow. I love a good tunic and leggings outfit in the fall!
It is a simple project with just a few stitches required.
You will use one main stitch throughout the project with a delicate and gorgeous stitch combo added for the trim. Also, you’ll need just a small amount of contrasting color for the trim as well. The beauty is in the details.
This tunic is a top down project with sleeves and trim added at the end. You will need a DK (#3) weight yarn for this project.
The pattern comes in women’s sizes XS to 2X and has a slight ease to it that increases as you work. This way you will not only get a great fit in your bust, but also at your hips.
The pattern is labeled Intermediate in pattern difficulty, however, most advanced beginners could create this tunic.

The Layla Tunic crochet pattern also comes in a children’s pattern! This pattern includes children’s sizes 2-10! It would make an adorable mommy and me set! It requires the same yarn, also with a small amount of contrasting color. My biggest recommendation when making both the children’s and the adult sizes is to just try on as you go.
