My Favorite Pullover – Crochet Pattern Review

Often when I’m browsing through crochet patterns on the interwebs I come across projects that I think I’ll make. Of course I think that about most things I find and then nothing ever happens. There are those rare times, however, when I find something that really grabs me and I’m pulled in by the project’s strong magnetic force. My Favorite Pullover pattern by Katy of KT and the Squid¬†immediately had my full attention. The image I came across had me thinking, “This looks soft and warm and cozy and all the things I look for in a sweater when it’s -20 and the wind is howling.”

Before Christmas I purchased all the yarn I would need (6-7 skeins of worsted weight acrylic yarn, like Caron – Simply Soft) and when we returned from our trip to Nicaragua I got to work. It was mid-January and after being in a tropical country I was desperate for something to snuggle in. The instructions were incredibly easy to follow and the pattern worked up fairly quickly (considering it’s a sweater!). But by the time I was weaving in the ends on the sleeves I was already putting away my winter clothes. I gazed longingly at my sweater, wanting to wear it despite the balmy weather. Seriously, there were people walking around in t-shirts at one point.

And then the weather gods looked upon my disappointed face and said, “Let’s bring on the frigid cold again so she can wear her sweater.”

As I type this it feels like -20C, with windchill, and I’m snuggled in my sweater feeling like I’m in the tropics.

If you’re looking for a simple and easy to understand crochet sweater pattern you should head over to Ravelry and snag the inexpensive pattern!

PS. I’m sorry I brought back the cold weather, I just really wanted to wear my sweater.
