It is with much pleasure to share this crochet unisex sweater pattern. I have designed this beauty for my husband and couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
The Tranquility dawn sweater is the first crochet unisex sweater I have designed. Seeing the beautiful look of this sweater on both genders makes me excited.
I have always wanted a crochet sweater perfect for men, and when I made this version, all I wanted was to make another for myself. You would agree that finding crochet sweaters for men can be daunting.
This crochet unisex sweater pattern is so versatile. There are 3 different options as regards the number of buttons. You can either go one-third, two-thirds, or even full length with the buttons.
The tranquility dawn crochet unisex sweater is a paid pattern. You can get the pattern on either Ravelry or Etsy. Use the links below.
The tranquility dawn sweater can be made in single color or in multiple colors. The prototype was made using self-striping yarn. I have pulled out the colors to fit the arrangement below.
The pattern was written with instructions on using multiple colors.
Some beautiful Photos from my pattern testers. I love all the beautiful colors and how they have pulled them together.
