Innfluenced by nature’s timeless Pine Tree, the Southern Pines Sweater is a round yoke, top-down design which uses post stitches to create a circle of branches expanding outwards, as if reaching for the light.

The pattern was inspired by my earlier poncho design: The falling pines poncho. If you’re not confident in making sweaters, you may want to try the poncho first! You can find it here:

The pattern is written in US terms (with UK equivalents given in the abbreviation list) for sizes XS - 3X and includes a schematic and some photo prompts to assist with construction.

Skills Needed
This project is suitable for advanced (or adventurous!) beginners or intermediate crocheters. The pattern is worked in the round and requires the use of post stitches, simple increases and decreases.

4.5mm Crochet Hook for body of sweater and 4mm hook for cuffs, hem and neckline.
