LACY CROPPED SWEATER

LACY CROPPED SWEATER


I have this lovely variegated yarn, but not sufficient to make a full length sweater – so thought a cropped one would be just right.  Here is what I have created.

Do check my long Pinterest link for all the free patterns I’ve written up over the years right at the bottom of this blog.

And inspired by this photo (designer's photo - not mine), here are my pattern notes as I work on my project.

Materials usedToday I’ve used ~ 1 skein of our superb Indian Oswal 3-ply variegated yarn with a 3.5 mm crochet hook

Size : 32” – 34”
Difficulty level : Intermediate Skill level. 



Instructions : (Using U.S Terminology)

The designer has offered different sizes and a neat diagram that makes it easy to see what we are constructing.

The pattern itself is really simple – all just chains and sc.

I found the ch-sp was too much and made my work far too lacy ; so I reduced it a bit – but it has worked out really well all the same.

I also did not want the ruffles at the end of the sleeve, so ended with two rounds of sc.


I think if we work 2 back patterns, and do not keep the front open, we will get a superb full sleeved crop top, what d'you think? Hmmmm.. idea for another day ;)

The beauty of this pattern is its simplicity and the fact that you can make it any size, using any yarn with a suitable hook!
