This Spring Equinox sweater is a perfect lightweight top for a garden party! Make it with long sleeves for cooler nights, or in cotton and short sleeves for bustling about during the day! I designed this top for my mother, who just loves anything with flowers. I wanted it to be a bit more demure, so the flowers are small, and only just enough for a statement! Also, instructions for the flowers on the collar come with picture instruction!
You can use any DK weight yarn, and you’ll need 875-1800 yards, depending on your personal preference of sleeve and bodice length. I used Premier Anti-Pilling Everyday DK, and it came out beautifully to show off that texture! I also like anti-pilling yarns for clothing, because it holds up so well to daily wear and tear – no felting over time like so many of my wool sweaters.
This top is the first of a set of 4 – one for every season! My mother loves flowers, so I made the Spring Equinox just for her. Small demure flowers around the yoke add a touch of that floral element, without overwhelming the blouse!
This lovely yoke top pullover comes in sizes from Small (32″) to 5XL (60″)!!! There’s NO seaming (I hate to sew), and very few color changes, so not too many ends to weave in, either! You will need a basic understanding of the crochet stitches chain, slip stitch, single crochet, and double crochet. The beautiful flowers around the collar are explained in picture instruction.
