The Acute Crochet Sweater is a dream to crochet. A clever use of triangles creates flattering lines for the body of the pullover, and it’s a project that works up very quickly and easily. The wool used here, Eco Andean, highlights the stitch definition and resists stretching out, while also creating a beautifully lightweight, yet warm, fabric. This classic raglan style construction is given a twist with a funnel collar. This piece is designed to be fairly form-fitting, though the fabric does have some give.
Approximately 3/4/4/5 skeins of Eco Andean DK Wool (100g/350yds each) in col. 004.
5.5 mm crochet hook (or size needed to obtain gauge). Please check your gauge.
In single crochet:16 sts x 16 rows = 4”.
In bobble pattern: 6 bobbles = 4”.
(Crochet a gauge swatch: ch 20, then single crochet 20 rows. Measure the inner 16 sc to see that they end up being approx. 4” x 4”.)
S/M/L/XL to fit 30-32/34-36/38-40/42-44” bust (choose the size that best matches your or the recipient’s actual bust measurement; positive ease of approximately 1”-2” is accounted for in the pattern).
