Same Thing, Different Result

Last year several posts were devoted to the quick, fabulous South Bay Shawlette from Lion Brand.  I made several and delighted in each.  That same stitch pattern is also used to crochet the New Lace Tunic from the same source.  

I'm making the tunic with the yarn from yesterday's post.  Having made the stitches before, it is almost too easy to create a rectangle.  The tunic, as it turns out, is just two rectangles seamed appropriately to create the effect.   The rows are churning out quickly and one hour of work produces as much lace as does twice that time spent on a new pattern.  

There just might be something to this whole repetition thing.  The brain is in balance and all cylinders are firing!
