I love this pattern because it’s actually two for one! The PDF includes instructions for both short and long sleeves.
So, depending on the type of yarn you use, this could be your go-to sweater year round.
I love Knit Picks CotLin for spring and summer. It’s a dk weight yarn with a touch of linen so it doesn’t stretch. As you may know, 100% cotton yarn might stretch a bit. My daughter has worn hers several times and I haven’t seen any signs of stretching.
For for fall and winter, I’m imagining any dk weight yarn with some merino wool such as Swish DK. It would be gorgeous with the puffs!
Speaking of puffs…how cute are these? I named it the Dahlia sweater, because the circles of puffs remind me of the layers of petals in a dahlia flower. I love the added touch of the puffs on the sleeves…it just adds that extra dimension of interest.
I designed the pattern so it is worked from the top down with the sleeves finished last. The best part is, there’s no seaming!
The pattern also includes links to 4 videos to help you along the way. And as always, if you need help, you can always contact me.
The pattern comes in all sizes from child size 4 to women’s 3X. So you can make one for yourself and someone you love. So grab some yarn and have some fun!
The Dahlia Baby is now also available! The baby sweater has a back slit with button closure to accommodate baby’s head. It comes in sizes 0-6M, 6-12M, 12-24M, and 2T.
I hope you enjoy The Dahlia Crochet Sweater Pattern! Be sure to share your photos with me, I love to see them. #tealandfinch on Instagram.
