Spring Crochet Blackberry Sweater

Spread the love

The beautiful texture in this sweater is so soothing and can be made into with either a sleeveless, above or below the elbow or a full sleeved sweater according to your preference.

Another great thing about this pattern is the fact that you can remove the front pocket if you are not a fan. I generally love pockets and try as much as possible to add them to my designs. Are you a pocket kind of girl?

Pattern Notes

1.     This pattern is written in 4 sections: the front and back panels are first made, joined together, the turtle neck is then made and the front pocket.

2.     Any Double Knit (#3) yarn can be substituted.

3.     The beginning chains do not count as a stitch unless stated.

4. Progress pictures are from 2 different yarn colors but same sweater.

Construction Note

1.     This pattern is worked in 4 sections

–        Section 1 – Front and Back Panels are made separately.

–        Section 2 – Shoulder is seamed together and the Neck cowl is made.

–        Section 3 – The front pocket is made and sewn to the body.

–        Section 4 – The Sleeves are then made and the sides of the panels are joined together. 

Adjustments

Length – You can reduce or increase the length of your sweater by reducing the number of repeats in either the Ribbed band or when crocheting the body.

Note that you would need to replicate this when working on the back panel.

I hope you have much fun working and wearing this beauty, spring blackberry sweater as I did.
