Happy New Year Maker’s! 🙂 Brenna from @brennaannhandmade here, and I’m so excited to share my 1st FREE, brand new design of 2019 with you all, the Oversized Crochet Pullover Sweater Pattern, made in collaboration with HobiumYarns!

It uses their beautiful, super soft, 100% La Mia Natural Wool, which comes in a some lovely neutral shades, perfect for garments! Are you ready to get started? Great! Let’s go! 🙂

*Fit’s Womens Size Small / Medium as written, (22″ long x 23.5″ wide)

To alter pattern:
– Body / Arm Length: add / decrease 3 rows of hdc per inch to base pattern
– Body / Arm Width: add / decrease 4 bl hdc rows per inch to base pattern

Materials needed:

5 skeins of La Mia Natural Wool yarn (be sure to purchase additional skeins if sizing up)

A pair of scissors

A 6.5mm crochet hook

A tapestry needle

 

Abbreviations:

ch = chain

beg = beginning

sl st = slip stitch

sc = single crochet

hdc = half double crochet

bl = back loop

 

Directions:

Sweater body: (Make 2)

Row 1: Make a slip knot, and ch 15. Put 1 hdc in the 3rd ch from the hook & across. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: Put 1 hdc in the bl of the same st, and each st across EXCEPT the last st. Instead, put 1 regular hdc in the last st of the row. Ch 1, turn.

Rows 3-58: Repeat row 2.

Next, ch 1 & turn your work 90 degrees; you will now be crocheting across the side of the rows you just completed, as pictured.

Row 1: 1 hdc in the same st, *put 1 hdc in the next st, and then 2 hdc in the stitch after that. Repeat from * across the entire row. Ch 1, turn.

Rows 2-50: put 1 hdc in ea st across, chaining 1 and turning at the end of each row (except last). Cut yarn and pull through, leaving a long tail for seaming.

(Now repeat the above steps to make 1 more panel)

 

Sleeves: (Make 2)

(Repeating the same ribbing stitch as above)

Row 1: Make a slip knot, and ch 15. Put 1 hdc in the 3rd ch from the hook & across. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: Put 1 hdc in the bl of the same st, and each st across EXCEPT the last st. Instead, put 1 regular hdc in the last st of the row. Ch 1, turn.

Rows 3-18: Repeat row 2. Now you are going to seam up the cuff & crochet the rest of the sleeve in the round.

 

To Seam Up Sleeve Cuff:

Step 1: Ch 1, and fold the cuff together, placing the finishing row even with the starting row.

Step 2: Sl st the 2 sides together evenly as pictured, by inserting the hook from front to back, through the bl of the 1st st on the last row & the 1st st on the starting row, and pulling through to close. Repeat up the entire cuff.

Next, ch 1 & turn your work 90 degrees; you will now be crocheting around the side of the rows you just completed, as pictured.

Row 1: 1 hdc in the same st, *put 2 hdc in the next stitch. Repeat from * around the entire row. Sl st to the beginning ch 1 to join the round.

Rows 2-25: Ch 1, put 1 hdc in ea st across. Cut yarn and pull through, leaving a long tail for seaming.

(Now repeat the above steps to make 1 more sleeve)

 

Sewing Up The Sweater:

Step 1: Place the two body panels together as pictured, and using the tapestry needle threaded with the long tail, sew in 27 st per side, leaving about a 9″ neckhole. Cut yarn & pull through.

Step 2: Now using another long piece of yarn threaded through the tapestry needle, sew up each side of the sweater, leaving about a 5″ armhole (or bigger if sizing up, just measure across the top of your sleeve piece (laying flat) – this will be the amount of inches needed for your arm hole)

Step 3: Using another long piece of yarn threaded throughout the tapestry needle one more time, sew the sleeves onto the body of the sweater.

 

Collar:

Row 1: Attach the crochet hook & yarn to the middle of one of the neckhole sides and ch 1. Now put 1 sc in each st around the entire neckhole, joining with a sl st to the beg ch 1 to connect round.

Row 2: Ch 1 and put 1 sc in each st around. Join with a sl st to beg ch 1 to connect round. Cut yarn, and pull through to tighten.

Weave in all ends. You’re all finished! 🙂

I really love the pattern. I know the neckline isn’t perfectly round like the sleeves and bottom of the sweater, but do you Think ribbing the neckline like the sleeves and bottom possibly work? Thank you, Jessika

Hi! I’m just wondering about more information on what kind of wool/how much/what weight. The link to the wool doesn’t work for me, and I’m very keen to make this pattern! Thank you! Katie

Hi, once I start working down the waist ribbing to create the body, the amount of stitches creates a huge flair out. Your pictures are showing a rectangular panel. By alternating 1 hdc and 2 hdc all the way down I am getting way too many stitches to create a rectangle. How many stitches should there be going down the side of the 58 rows of ribbing? Thanks ! :-)

I love this pattern and it’s well written, but I’m having trouble following it without stitch counts. I agree with the previous comment that without knowing a total stitch count for this row, i’m getting a flare out. Help?

I am having the same problem. Mine is flaring out and not rectangular. I love this pattern but without stitch counts on certain parts, it’s difficult to follow and hard to know if your doing it right (until it’s too late).

Hi. Like the last comment from WENDY, when I alternate one and two hdc to create the main part after the waist ribbing, the main pattern seems way bigger than the ribbing, so a wavy main part is created. Do you have a comment on that? Could you perhaps tell us how many stitches you have on the main part? Thank you!

Hi Wendy! I am making th same sweater and running into the same problem. I notice she didn’t reply, but did you figure it out on your own?

I put 5 stitches for every 4 rows of cuff/bottom band. It ended up being the right fit of stitches. Hope this helps!

Hi, I finally figured out what the problem was with my sweater. I was creating more stitches than necessary. Keep in mind that you should crochet only those stitches that look like a slip knot. At the end I have approximately 90 stitches in the main body of the sweater (e.g. the back part) and I created 60 stitches at the ribbing. Hope this helps.

Is there a way to increase the size of the pattern to fit a size 3X? If so I really would like to know. Thank you in advance.
