So the other day I stumbled on this free colour block jumper pattern. I loved the idea of the colour block and without hesitation went to download it. I like saving the digital crochet patterns (any patterns for that matter) to my smart phone or tablet it makes it so much easier to crochet on the go!
It’s a really easy crochet pattern and great for someone who’s wanting to try a bit of shaping. It’s important to note that the pattern is written using British English Crochet Terminology opposed to the American English Terminology. If you need a bit of help with the conversions check out my videos here.
I wanted the jumper to be slightly bigger so I decided to use an aran weight (10 ply) extra fine merino yarn sitting in my stash, instead of the recommended DK (8 ply) yarn specified in the pattern. Thankfully I had enough to finish the jumper!
For some reason It seems like I’m enjoying the Navy, Teal and purple combo lately. I was actually wearing the same colours when I picked out the yarn! Lol 😀
The pattern is worked in rows and uses basic cluster stitches which is pretty much the same as creating a basic granny square. The ribbing for the bottom band, cuffs and the neckline are both worked using front and back post stitches.
I was surprised and how quickly it worked up, but in all honesty the pattern is well written and super simple to follow! Here’s my end result. Yup happy az! And just in time for winter 🙂
