Coldwave Sweater

Worked seamlessly from the bottom up, this futuristic design is crocheted in the round. The sleeves are crocheted separately and added at the bustline before finishing the sweater. Ribbing at the neck and hems holds it all together. Make it fitted or oversized, then wear it up or off one shoulder.

One thought on “Coldwave Sweater

  1. Has anyone made this pattern? I am an intermediat crocheter, but I am having issues understanding how it is worked – Round 1 ending doesn’t make sense to me. I may be overthinking but would appreciate any help. Thanks, Marti
