Pattern Inspiration

Bulky weight yarn is so nice for quick projects, and since crochet sweaters can be quite time consuming, I wanted to try my hand at a sweater made with bulky yarn!

I love a tunic length sweater in the winter because I love to wear leggings and boots! So I knew I wanted this to be a longer crochet sweater pattern, but customizable for those who wanted it shorter.
