Here is your chance to learn a freeform spiral technique and wear it to prove it! This sweater wrap is crocheted with only a few simple stitches, easy to count increases, and requires no sewing! The spiral technique might take a few tries, but once you get it, there is no stopping you. I was so pleased with my accomplishment that I had to show it off as the focal point of a big, soft, alpaca sweater wrap.
- Henry’s Attic Peruvian Tweed (665 yards per 8 oz skein), 1 skein each in Cream/Beige Tweed #117 (Color A), Gray/Black Tweed #109 (Color B), Taupe/Black Tweed #111 (Color C)
- Henry’s Attic Prime Alpaca (665 yards per 8 oz skein), 1 skein in Silver Gray (Color D)
- 5.0mm (US size H/8) for size small/medium
- 6.5mm (US size K/10.5) for size large/xlarge
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
With smaller hook: 7 sts and 4 rows in dc = 2”
With larger hook: 6 sts and 3 rows in dc = 2”
The entire garment is worked with the smaller size hook to obtain size small/medium, or the entire garment is worked with the larger size hook to obtain size large/xlarge.
Vary the position of the increases from round to round, so they don’t line up over each other. This will ensure evenly rounded edges in the completed garment.
