I am so excited to share with you the Camellia Sweater! This sweater is made with hand dyed DK (#3) weight yarn from KT and the Squid!
Katy is a fellow crochet pattern designer and also a super creative yarn dyer! She sent me this beautiful yarn, called Cari, to create with and I was so excited to start designing!
The Camellia Sweater is a hi-low style sweater with an optional cowl neckline and long sleeves.
The crochet pattern comes in women’s sizes XS to 2X.
It is a rectangle workup, meaning you create two rectangle panels and sew them together to create the sweater. The sleeves and neckline are added at the end.
I used the gorgeous hand dyed yarn from Katy for this project. This yarn is 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon. However, you can use any DK (#3) weight yarn you prefer.
The pattern difficulty is intermediate. The stitches used are very basic sc and dc, but you will need to have some knowledge of crocheting garments and sewing crochet pieces together.
The sweater has about 6″ of positive ease to it, making it slightly over sized. You will, however, be able to easily adjust the length and width of the project. For a tighter fit, go down a size. The cowl neckline is optional and added at the end.
Since the backside is longer you can wear this sweater with your favorite leggings and boots!
