Crochet and Relax
Once you choose your yarn, you’ll relax as you work the sweater from the bottom up. It’s such a joy to see the little roses spring from your hook.
I think you will enjoy the stitch pattern on the sleeves as well. It’s unique and rhythmic. The sleeves are easy to customize in both length and width because they are worked from the top down. And you know what that means, less seams!
“The Roses” they look so pretty and overall sweater is so so cute and cozy.Shivana – Tester
Quick Crochet Sweater Pattern

Inspired by Surface Pattern Design
One thing that designers in all mediums ponder is “what is my style?”
A style is very important to an artist because it distinguishes one artist’s work from another.
It’s very valuable because this is what people come to a particular artist for.
As I was pondering this question for the 1 millionth time in my life I realized that my crochet sweater patterns are all heavily influenced by surface patterns or in other words, printed repeating patterns.
I was delighted to make this realization. Before I started crocheting I was, among other things, a surface pattern designer. I would illustrate motifs and put them in repeats for companies.
My illustrations have graced many different types of products from socks, to pajamas, to lamps, to wrapping paper and everything in between.
Until now this surface pattern element of my crochet designs has been completely subconscious. But now that I have realized it, I can lean into it and really make it my own.
So keep an eye out for more crochet sweater patterns from me with interesting pattern stitches that mimic illustrated repeating patterns!
I really like how it turned out! It’ll be perfect for winter! …I like how the pattern isn’t too busy or too obvious.HollyAnn – Tester
