I am so excited to share my newest crochet sweater pattern – Plumbago! This pattern is in the Spring 2022 Issue of Crochet Foundry Magazine!
A long sleeved, lightweight sweater with eyelets down the sleeve has been on my “to-design” list for a while! So when I saw the call for the Crochet Foundry spring issue, I knew that was the design that I wanted to propose.
I have a thing for eyelets. They are such an easy way to add flare and class to a crochet garment. I just love how elegant they look! I also love picot trims! You’ll find this style of trim in a number of my designs. I used both eyelets and a picot trim to give this design the look I wanted and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!
The Plumbago crochet sweater is a top down, raglan style workup. It is made with fingering (#1) weight yarn. I used WeCrochet Gloss fingering for my sweater.
Gloss Fingering yarn is a merino wool/silk blend. It is a dream to work with and comes in 17 beautiful colorways.
This pattern is rated intermediate, mostly because it is a garment that requires some shaping, increases and decreases, and sizing knowledge. The stitches, however, are very basic and beginner friendly.
Plumbago is worked from the top down with just a bit of seaming at the sleeve cuff. Everything else is worked in the round, joining at the end of each round and turning.
The Plumbago Sweater crochet pattern comes in 9 sizes ranging from women’s XS to 5X.
