Introducing the Evergreen Pullover.

The Design

This cozy crochet sweater is perfect for a chill afternoon running errands or hanging at the local coffee shop. It features a relaxed cropped fit, straight sleeves, and a subtle eyelet striped texture. This pattern was inspired by the evergreen trees found near my home in Minnesota. It can also double as a low-key and stylish Christmas and holiday sweater.


The sweater is constructed by making a front and back panel and seaming them together at the shoulders and sides. Then, the neckline ribbing and bottom hem ribbing are added using the perpendicular method. And finally, the sleeves are added to the armholes and topped off with the sleeve ribbing (using the same method as the neckline and bottom hem).



Fit + Sizing

The Evergreen Pullover has a cropped, boxy fit, crew neck, and straight sleeves. Sizing is based on Craft Yarn Council's standards. However, it is quite easy to adjust the length or width of this sweater (if you require customizations), and add length to the sleeves. Notes for customizing the length and/or width are noted along the way.


It is designed to have a positive ease of 8-11". To select your size, measure your bust and find the garment circumference in the chart that matches approximately 8-11" larger. If you prefer to have more or less ease, select the garment circumference that reflects that number in inches compared to your measured bust in inches.

Materials

As written, you'll need:

  • approximately 1266(1439, 1534, 1755, 1948, 2148, 2301)yds of category 3 DK weight yarn

Other materials you'll need:

  • 3.5mm and 4mm crochet hook

  • tapestry needle

  • scissors

Yarn Substitutions:

The yarn I used, WeCrochet Paragon Sport is discontinued (Knit Picks, WeCrochet's sister company, still has some bare undyed Paragon in stock if you're looking for a basic ivory color), but many DK and some sport weight yarns should substitute well. You can also check out Yarn Sub. I recommend making sure you make a gauge swatch. Small differences in gauge can lead to big differences in project outcome. For more on gauge, you can read this blog.

  • WeCrochet Galileo | This is a sport weight merino wool and bamboo blend that is a very close and nearly perfect substitute for Paragon Sport.

  • Lion Brand Coboo | This DK cotton bamboo blend is a really drape-y, cool-on-the-skin yarn, that makes a great, really wearable and comfy garment. I think this would make an excellent warm-weather substitute that would create a very slinky and breathable final result.

  • We Are Knitters The Cotton* | This is a 100% Pima cotton from Peru that is labeled a sport/DK weight. From a cotton standpoint, it's really luxurious and the color selections are gorgeous.

  • WeCrochet Swish DK | Swish is a 100% fine superwash merino wool that is really soft and comes in a lot of beautiful colors.

  • WeCrochet Andean Treasure | It's no secret this is a fave of mine. I've used it in several of my designs. It's a 100% baby alpaca sport weight yarn that is so luxurious and a dream to work with.

  • WeCrochet Heatherly | This is a newer yarn from WeCrochet that comes in both sport weight and worsted weight. It's an 80/20 acrylic/merino wool blend that is designed to be easy to work with, have great stitch definition (which should highlight the texture of the Evergreen Pullover nicely), and easy to care for. It comes in a variety of gorgeous pastel and muted colors.
