Sven Sweater

from Moogly
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Sven Sweater
Sven Sweater Sven Sweater - the back
Sven Sweater Sven Sweater

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • half double crochet
  • work with multiple colors
  • basic seaming

Pattern Description:

As a mom of 2 boys, I've noticed over the years that most crocheted sweaters are designed for girls only. I wanted to design something that would really work for both boys and girls, and even when you don't know which kind of baby you're crafting for!

The Sven Sweater is crocheted top down, and each piece is joined as you go, so there's no seaming. The unique color pattern design gives this pattern an intermediate rating, and the PDF includes a link to a tutorial video which fully explains and demonstrates the technique.

Change up the colors, the buttons, the hood - this sweater lends itself to endless personalization, and is one you can make again and again.
