New crochet pattern in the shops - Seamless Boat Neck Crochet Pullover Sweater / Top Pattern.

Hey everybody,
I am excited to show this new pattern in my shops.
What looks like made out of motifs actually made as one piece with connections as you go between "motifs" and for side and sleeve seams.
It's shaped loose or over-sized. I personally recommend dark colors to really show this pretty stitch.


Crochet Seamless Drop Shoulder Open Stitch Sweater / Pullover / Top / Cover Up.
Though the stitch looks like consisted of motifs, there are no motifs; body is made as one piece with connections as you go for side seams. Sleeves are started from the body and made as one piece each with connection as you go for seams.

*This is a crochet pattern and not the finished item*

Crochet level:
- Intermediate
You should know how to crochet following stitches:

This pattern includes:
- schematic for sizes and individual schematic for every size, explaining order of work
- written instructions under step-by-step picrures
- charts (charts reding skill is not required)

Instructions are given in English language, American terminology

Crochet hook:

Recommended materials:
- 230 (280, 300, 360, 390) g of Fingering weight yarn (100 g / 3.5 oz / 300 m / 330 yards); shown here – Lithuanian 6 ply Linen Yarn from YarnStories on Etsy in #402 Radiant Orchid - buy 3 (3, 3, 4, 4) balls of 3 ply (100 g / 3.5 oz / 600 m / 660 yards) and use 2 strands from inside and outside of one ball (fingering weight requires 6 ply of this yarn)

- Technically there are no motifs, but you can visually separate square “motifs” in this stitch. 1 “motif” side is about 8 cm (3 1/8''), 1 smaller “motif” in the center of bigger “motif” side is about 3.5 cm (1 3/8''). Make a swatch (Chart 1, step-by-step pictures) 3 x 3 “motifs”, measure central motif for gauge

  1. Esse é um trabalho magnífico! Muito delicado!

  2. Me chifla!, crees que es posible darle un toque más informal y utilizar un algodóm para aguja del 5, por ejemplo?. Para llevar con vaqueros...
