Granny Square Tunic Top -free crochet pattern-

Granny squares are fun and can be used in so many different ways, like this pretty tank styled crochet tunic top!  A great aspect of this pattern is that, even though worsted weight yarn was used, you can easily implement your own yarn weight and adjust the size.  Of course a light weight yarn would require more work, however, would be more suitable for summer.  I would love to give this one a try! This is a Ravelry download.
