Boho chic is so popular, and this Wild Child Tunic is right on trend. Your favorite little one will look adorable in this granny square tunic that makes the perfect transition from summer to fall. It will be her favorite top to wear over leggings and a tee, tank, or leotard.
Kids—and parents—will love the easy-on, easy-off design of the Wild Child Tunic. Plus, the multicolored granny square bodice goes with just about everything in your child’s wardrobe. They’ll dance and prance when they put it on, because it’s so fun and comfortable to wear. No arguments!
The Clementine color shown in the pattern works well to bridge the seasons, but you can also choose the child’s favorite hues. Rainbow shades, primaries, whatever makes your child happy.
The Wild Child Tunic pattern is worked in flat pieces from the bottom up. Begin with the back, then work the front up to the bodice. For the bodice, work eight granny square motifs. Block and join the front, back, and motifs (leaving a gap in the center to mimic a Henley style top), then work the sleeves.
Crochet and knitwear designer Tian Connaughton created this pattern for I Like Crochet. Tian says her designs are intended to provide learning opportunities featuring interesting and unique details—and we can’t disagree. If you’ve never made a child’s top or granny squares before, Tian’s pattern provides the perfect opportunity to learn.
The Wild Child Tunic pattern includes:
- Complete stitch instructions for 4 sizes (2-8)
- List of necessary materials
- Pattern notes
- Finishing instructions
Just imagine how proud you’ll be to see your young one wearing this handmade garment. Not to mention the happiness you’ll bring to the wearer. The Wild Child Tunic is right for any child who likes to dance, play, and frolic—while looking absolutely adorable.
