First, a little info about the Wulf Mens Pullover!
After releasing the Midwestern Warmth Cabled Pullover, I received several requests for a men’s shawl collared pullover without cables. I thought that was a fantastic idea and it would make for a great crochet along this fall!
This sweater uses simple construction methods and there is very little seaming (only the shoulders). Who doesn’t love an almost seamless garment?
The pattern includes a garment schematic so that you can check measurements to make sure your gauge stays on track, a complete measurement chart, and it also includes a stitch chart for the textured stitch section.
Do you have a tall guy in your life? No worries! There are instructions included to easily lengthen the torso and the sleeves!
Most of us can follow a well written pattern and crochet on our own, but I think it’s lots more fun to work with friends in a group. And since I don’t have a local crochet group I can attend, I host crochet alongs online. I think they’re just as much fun!
