About the Pattern

The Fantasy Pullover is a top down, yoke style sweater, which uses DK yarn and a very elastic style of hem that will offer both a flattering fit, and comfortable drape. This pattern was written for use with Lion Brand Mandala yarn, but any size 3 yarn will do. The fabric works into a beautiful texture with a soft, elastic finish.

There is no sewing or joining, as this sweater is worked entirely in one piece, with new rounds beginning in the center of the back and insides of the sleeves. It is an excellent project for advanced beginner to intermediate level crocheters who are nervous to step into sweater and garment making.


All of the stitch counts are provided, so no measuring or math is necessary along the way! Just choose a size that works for you, and follow the pattern. If you’re comfortable adjusting sizes to make your own custom fit, this pattern works excellent for that given just how simple it is to adjust.

Note: Body width is 1/2 the circumference of the hips. It is measured by laying the sweater flat and measuring across the front. Diagrams are included in the pattern, and in the preview images.
