AMBIANCE ORIGAMI: Sweater Crochet Pattern – published!

I don’t want to challenge conventions of beauty and create something ill-fitting that swamps the body and uses enormous amount of yarn. So, even if every catwalk seems to show oversize and awkward looking chunky knits I prefer wearing more proportional and comfortable clothes. Especially if they are oversized :).

And I’m very happy that regardless of this trend for strange-looking fashion, my oversize top became popular on http://www.lovecrochet.com  – I see it regularly among their hottest tops. Yea, I finally published several patterns there :).

Or maybe it’s because it’s dressier and sharper than a conventional tee and people love timeless appeal? 🙂

I suggest to crochet it in white because

  1. White tops are hot weather appropriate, they make any outfit look crisp, modern and fresh.
  2. They are great if you are tired of darker winter garments and want to lighten up.
  3. White tops look perfect with lots of other colors, they are wardrobe essential for any style.

Mohair crochet sweater – PATTERN

It’s a bit difficult to think of a nice sweater if you love minimalism, crochet, but hate sweaters made entirely in double crochet stitches. Yep, minimalism forever, but not as boring 😊. Also out of questions are things crocheted with one stitch-pattern, then with second, third. It should be something nice, wearable and catching.

This sweater was made with stashed mohair: 2 skeins remaining from this project  and 3 skeins of white mohair, all bought 7-8 years ago.  My mohair/nylon had 600 m per 100 gr-weight.

Mohair crochet pullover – PATTERN

I loved the colour of this mohair/nylon yarn and bought 8 skeins 4-5 years ago, however could not find a nice project for a long time. Originally this yarn was intended for a knitting garment, but I did not like any results. I think the mohair yarn for beautiful knitting garments should be much thinner than mine. I like those subtle and ephemeral mohair lace knit creations, but they are made of yarn approximately 900-1000 meters per 100 grams. My mohair/nylon had 600 m per 100 gr-weight.
Then I tried different crochet ideas, but most crochet patterns were somehow not suitable for this fiber because the whole look seamed “overloaded” and I could not show the beauty of my yarn. Until I started making these waves:

Crochet pullover pattern for sizes US (4-6-10-12-16-18-22-24), UK (8-10-14-16-20-22-26-28), Europe (36-38-42-44-48-50-54-56).

Good thing with my thick mohair is that I was able to undo several crocheted rows during my experiments. Because the mohair yarn is held together by a nylon thread I have unraveled the stitches without ruining the fiber quality. The mohair yarn is quite fuzzy and the stitches cling to each other, so I used a big sewing needle and picked all stitches one by one.  It took quite a while, so some patience was necessary : )).

For embellishment I’ve used thin ribbon of a matching colour.
