If you are looking for the perfect sweater with texture and interest, then welcome! You’re in the right place! The Sunshine Puff Sweater is a delightful sweater that you’ll want to wear forever.
You may already know that I am obsessed with texture. And lately, texture has had to be in the form of puff stitches. Occasionally I get stuck on a certain crochet stitch, and I make everything in that stitch. I put these puffs in my Puff Showcase Tote, they have their own signature purse (coming soon!), and the next logical step was this sweater!
As with all my sweaters, I try to make them size inclusive, so this sweater comes in sizes Small (32″) to 5XL (60″). Being plus sized myself, I want everyone to be able to wear my creations, and I want everyone to feel beautiful wearing them!
This is a yoke top sweater, so there’s no seaming – absolutely no sewing at all. When I crochet clothes, seaming is by far my least favorite part, so I often try to make clothes that have no sewing, so yoke top sweaters are a personal favorite! It’s made mostly of single crochets and treble crochets, with intervening puff stitches, so it’s a fun pattern that works up pretty fast!
So here’s what you need!
