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.

HOW to Add Your Project to Ravelry

Trendy hoodie PATTERN with round motifs – 2018 it was published, see what to make next

When I reached the armholes I thought of simplifying the process – follow the oversize-trend and make drop shoulders with straight sleeves. But a closer look at any project with such construction revealed huge hanging pieces at armholes. Do I want to make another beautiful top or finish it as soon as possible, and even use more yarn than it’s needed at armholes? So again, I made my normal set-in sleeves :). Maybe there are women who look beautiful in oversize clothes – it’s easy to crochet any T-shape, but garments that fit well are still more appealing to me.

Similar crochet tunic features beautiful cold shoulder cut outs allowing you to be elegant and sexy without being overexposed. This is one of my favorite styles, partly because it suits not only young girls but classy women who like to wear feminine and trendy crochet garments. And partly because this tunic is so versatile and flattering! Want to look instantly cool? Pair it with fitted jeans and basic tops to show off your tanned shoulders. For bohemian appeal team it with long skirts and fancy earrings.

Origami knit sweater

Paper folding technique where several sheets are arranged into interesting shapes is a very entertaining game for people of all ages. But do you know that with similar technique, you can create a sweater or even a sweater dress that requires minimum of shaping and uses creative and practical heuristic approach to knit a garment?

The construction of this sweater is very simple: front, back and sleeves are worked back and forth in long straight 4 panels till you get accustomed to constantly repeated rows – browse photos to see how front, back and sleeves are arranged around neckline. Then the decrease is made at one side of each panel (in most rows you will decrease 1 stitch only). Finally everything is folded (as in origami) and sewn together. And best of all – all 4 panels are worked the same way! Thus, every new panel will be knitted faster because you already have relevant past experience.

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.

The sporty chic sweater crochet pattern is available here:

You will receive:

This crochet tutorial is provided for sizes:

XS-S with bust measured 82-86 cm (32-34’’);
S-M with bust measured 90-95 cm (35.5-37.5’’);
M-L with bust measured 98-104 cm (38.5-41’’);
L-XL with bust measured 106-112 cm (41.5-44’’).

Tunic for yarn leftovers – PATTERN

What is most essential to crochet your wearables neatly?

First of all is the yarn! The thicker is the yarn the faster and thicker will be your clothing garment, the more protruding will be all seams and imperfections, the most likely you will not want to wear it outside the house. Second, whether you crochet loose or tight? I’d be very careful with loose crochet stitches – in some boho garments they look beautiful and in more classical apparel they will imply crocheter’s negligence. Third, is the blocking of your completed garment, because this final step reveals the beauty of all stitches.

crochet sweater PATTERN for sizes XS-4XL

I love summer crochet garments made with fingering yarn weight (4 ply) and when several rows of solid double crochet stitches emphasize the contrasting lacy geometric patterns. Such garments remain lacy enough, not too thick to make you sweaty, and do not take ages to complete.

In this project I have combined 6 different colours – LEFT OVERS remaining after finishing this off shoulder tunic, diagonal jacketmy boho tunic with tassels, this tunic, three 50-gr balls of cotton/rayon (I loved the dark blue colour even if the yarn shop had 3 balls only : )) and light blue yarn that was left after completing a very old project made for my husband’s sister 8-9 years ago. She put on some weight since then and gave her present away :).

Two colours were originally of DK-weight/8ply and I divided yarn in 2 strands to have Fingering weight/4 ply.

As you might have seen, I love this combination of blue and beige colours very much:
