[På svenska här] Introducing the Karamell Sweater; a soft and comfortable pullover that works up quickly and comes in sizes from 4Y to women’s size XL. Karamell is Swedish for candy, and is also the name of the yarn I designed it for: Karamell by Falkgarn, a worsted weight self-striping yarn. This is a straightforward pattern, perfect if it is your first time tackling something bigger than hats and scarves.
A while ago I was contacted by Swedish yarn brand Falkgarn, who asked if I would try out their new worsted, self striping yarn cakes. Of course I did! (Mega flattered…) I started doing some research into what kinds of patterns already existed for this type of yarn and quickly realised there were very few patterns for everyday, practical garments – things that you, and your kids, would need and want to use (or wear) every day! And I always want the things that I make to be useful, to fulfil a need.
The Karamell Sweater is crocheted top down and is seamless. It is made with a larger hook than recommended for the yarn, and worked in the back loop throughout, giving it drape and softness. (The only stitches not worked into back loops are slip stitches and stitches worked into chain-spaces.)
This clever yarn creates stripes all by itself, making for a fun and interesting project whilst leaving you with a minimum of loose ends to weave in.
You can download the pattern here for free. In return I would love if you share your finished creations on Instagram, tag & follow me (@hooked_by_anna) or link your Ravelry project page with my pattern, so I can see! Thank you.
