Crochet Pattern of the Week: Fullerene Pullover from The Crochetist
This winter, my vibe is very much about the oversized tunics in luxurious fibers. Am I trying to get away with feeling like I’m wearing pajamas while being dressed up for work? Shamelessly, yes. Which is why, when I saw Jane Howorth’s Fullerene Pullover, I knew it would make my queue short list, for sure. Stitched in a bulky-weight, fuzzy, llama-soft yarn (Sugar Bush Yarns Dawson), it’s exactly the pullover pattern I’ve been looking for.
The Fullerene Pullover is made sideways in one piece, from the right sleeve hem to the left sleeve hem. What a fun way to watch a crocheted sweater grow! I can’t wait to watch the stitches fly by.
And can we talk about the design details on this gorgeous project? A front patch pocket adds a fresh and practical touch, the mock turtleneck is super trendy and flattering, and a split hem gives it a relaxed fit that I simply must add to my wardrobe.
