Email to email@example.com
Technique: Regular Crochet
Be certain to also print your graph for the tank top, in both front and back, in the size you need. The graphs will depict the stripes for the Boricua Tank Top. When using the graphs for the Tuxedo Baby Set, make the back in one solid color and the front using only the center stripe in white with three rows of red on either side of the white stripe. Alternatively, print the blank graph to make your own unique design. Print the instructions and graphs on the following pages.

Note: From time-to-time, there could be mistakes in my patterns no matter how much they're tested and tech-edited. Mistakes can happen in writing, tech-editing or during pattern layout. If you find a mistake, please feel free to email me. Until computers start designing and writing patterns, mistakes will happen. I have been designing and writing patterns for over 20 years. All of my designs have been created originally by me. Any similarities to any other designs are purely coincidence.
