Ladies Stripey Sweater Crochet Pattern to fit UK size 10-12 (US 8-10)


This pattern sadly only comes in one size as I designed it specifically for me, as I really wanted to design a crochet jumper that looked different, and used a thinner yarn than the normal chunky yarn I usually use. However I would still like to share with you the pattern for your enjoyment though. Hopefully it will inspire you to adapt the pattern if you are larger or smaller than the stated size here.

This sweater pattern is a medium to fit a UK size 10-12 (US 8-10).

Materials Required
Important Notes
  • The half double crochet stitches are made in the hdc space NOT the hdc stitch
  • This pattern is in US terminology
W = White 
B = Blue

Pattern

Cuffs

Row 1
Using W, crochet 40 hdc foundation stitches - (40)

Note* If you are new to the hdc foundation stitch, you can watch my tutorial here, which explains the basic method but applied to the dc foundation stitch. Simply work a hdc as normal instead of a dc after pulling through the first loop. http://youtu.be/PskA7r0a6Lc

Second Note* Crochet less foundation stitches for a shorter cuff.
