The Springtime Sweater crochet pattern is a fun, lightweight, sweater that is great for the end of winter and the transition into spring! It has 3/4 sleeves and a simple trim to give it a super classy look! This pattern comes in children’s sizes 2-10 and adult sizes XS-2X. It is worked from the bottom up, with sleeves added at the end. There is just a tiny bit of seaming done at the shoulders.
I used Baby Bee Sweet Delight yarn from Hobby Lobby. It is a DK (#3) weight yarn that I really enjoy using. I’ve used it before in designs like the Katie Cardi and the Derby Duster Vest. It’s soft and comfortable against my skin. This yarn also has a really nice drape, even before blocking. It’s a 60% acrylic, 40% polyamide blend. Sweet Delight comes in a huge variety of colors including neutrals, pastels, and brights.
The Springtime Sweater uses the extended single crochet stitch. You can find a video tutorial I made for this stitch HERE. This is a really easy stitch and it gives your rounds a little bit more height than the basic single crochet stitch. Plus the added height gives it a nice stretch as well. I love this stitch and have used it in a few of my previous designs such as the Parker Baseball Tee and the KJ Hat.
