The Siesta Sweater is going to be your go to crochet top for both spring and fall!
This design has been an idea I’ve had on the back burner since last winter and I finally was able to complete it!
I wanted something simple, but that looked intricate! I also wanted something great for transitioning into a new season. It turned out just as beautiful as I had hoped!
This crochet pattern calls for sport (#2) weight yarn. I used WeCrochet Brava Sport for my sweater.
The pattern difficulty is labeled as intermediate.
This crochet top is a bottom up sweater with sleeves added at the end. There is only a small amount of seaming at the shoulders.
The instructions from this pattern come in women’s sizes XS to 2X.
This sweater is fitted with only about one inch of positive ease. If you would like a looser fit, go up one size.
The lacy trim is optional, but I feel that it adds a nice finish to the body of the sweater.
This crochet pattern uses the herringbone half double crochet stitch. I am a left-handed crocheter. If you are a right-handed crocheter the steps will be the same, but you will be working in the opposite direction of the video.
