Today’s FREE crochet pattern is the Sorrel River Sweater/Tunic. I designed this sweater/tunic in 2011 for Caron Yarns. Here it is…
I used Naturally Caron Spa yarn (now discontinued) and a size G (4 mm) crochet hook for my sweater/tunic (you may use a different size of crochet hook, depending on the size of the sweater/tunic you’re making, though). You can use any DK weight yarn that you want for this sweater/tunic, as long as you’re able to achieve the listed gauge.
This sweater/tunic is made with motifs, which are joined together while crocheting the last round of each motif, so there’s no seaming required. The square motifs are set on point and are joined at the corners, as well as at the middle of each side. The corner joins create what looks like a mini motif between the larger motifs, but that’s just the 4 corners being joined! I used full motifs, half motifs and quarter motifs in this sweater/tunic. An edging is added around the neck, at the bottom of the sleeves and at the bottom of the sweater/tunic. The pattern includes crochet symbol diagrams and assembly diagrams. If you’re uncertain about how to join the motifs, you can see some additional photos and chart that I added to the Ravelry pattern page here.
I hope you’ll give this sweater/tunic a try. You can find the FREE pattern here.
