A Shell Stitch Crochet Sweater Pattern
Salina Sweater is a crochet pattern for an oversized color blocked sweater. I LOVE this sweater! So does Drama Queen, who is the lucky owner of this cozy sweater. You can find this pattern on Ravelry, Etsy, and LoveCrochet.
I originally designed this sweater for WEBS to use in marketing their yarn, as the sweater is crocheted in their yarn Valley Yarns Longmeadow, a DK weight, cotton/microfiber blend with great softness. However, they wound up changing directions with the patterns they were looking to publish, and gave me the opportunity to self-publish the pattern instead (thank you!). Unfortunately, since publishing this pattern I have discovered that Longmeadow has been discontinued. However, their yarn, Southwick is also DK weight and similar fibers, so you might try that as a substitute if you can’t get your hands on enough Longmeadow.
This pattern is made to fit with generous ease throughout the body, and a little more snugly in the arms.
The pattern is written with bust circumferences of 33, 39, and 45 inches (or 84, 99, and 114.5 cm). You’ll probably want to choose a size 2 to 6 inches larger around than you are, and choose 2 colors that you love together.
