I found this beautiful tunic while I was searching around, but it is sadly for crochet...and I'm not very good with it...

So I was wondering if there was a similar pattern to this...with or without the pockets and shorter/longer lengths is fine...or maybe there is some pattern stitch that could look similar to it so I could just use that to improvise...

What about twisted stitch rows or drop stitch rows?  That'd be my best guess as to making that stitch look similar.

I am not a knitter so I can't answer your direct question, but I can say that this was my 2nd non-scarf project, and my first clothing project.  It was super easy, because it is only two stitches.  It went quickly too.  The only thing is that the weight of the yarn is very bulky, and I don't care for how it looks on me (I am plus sized).  Either way, it is super cute and I wish you luck.

Well I guess that might work...

My niece just arrived in Thailand yesterday and she brought with her FIVE (count 'em, f - i - v - e!!!) knitting magazines. One of them, and I'm sorry I don't remember which one, has that very stitch (filet) that someone invented for knitting. I'll try to bring/remember the name tomorrow. Very cleverly worked out and in my mind ended up looking even better than the crochet filet - oh, and there was a pattern very similar to this pattern you linked to given for that stitch in that mag as well.
