Have you been wanting to make a garment, but find yourself intimidated by them? If so, come join us for the Urban Crossover Pullover Crochet-A-Long! This sweater is the newest design available in my shops: Ravelry, Etsy & Craftsy and I’m hosting a CAL that runs thru mid-April (2017). Hop on over, join the A Crocheted Simplicity Crochet Community group on Facebook and join in the F-U-N! (Keep reading for all crochet-a-long details.)
Now let’s talk a little about the pattern itself.
Sizes: This pullover is sized from Women’s XS – 3XL and includes instructions to customize the overall length of the pullover and the sleeves.
Yarn: I used Lion Brand Heartland, in the color Mount Rainier, for the pullover in the photos. Lion Brand Heartland is a 100% acrylic, light worsted weight yarn (4). This yarn lends the perfect amount of drape to the design.
Yardage: The yardage for this pullover varies from 1,250 yards (XS) up to 2,000 yards (3X).
Hook: I used a 6.5mm crochet hook for this garment design (Clover Amour are my favorites). The 4mm hook that is listed is only for the small belt that wraps around the cowl neck. Make sure to make the small gauge swatch on page 2 and adjust your hook to meet gauge. Since this is a garment, gauge is very important. 😉
Pattern: The pattern itself is very clearly written and has been tested by several crocheters at all different skill levels to assure it’s easy enough to read for even a confident beginner. The pattern is 20 pages long and includes photos for any and all spots that may need clarification.
