Happy New Year Maker’s! πŸ™‚ 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! πŸ™‚

*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! πŸ™‚
